Command E provides blazing fast search for everything in a person’s cloud and on their computer: Google Drive, Salesforce, LinkedIn, Dropbox, Evernote, Trello, Notion, Jira, Asana, Hubspot, Greenhouse, and more — all searchable from one keyboard shortcut. Simply hit command+e and a single interface pops up to support instant search anywhere. 


By definition, an app that provides seamless search and navigation across all tools requires access to a lot of systems. Security has been a core tenet of the Command E service since day one, and Command E understands that people using the product need to know their systems are secure.

The Challenge

Command E wanted to provide their customers with critical security assurance in a clear and definitive way, so they decided to take on their first SOC 2. While achieving that shorter term milestone, the team also planned to build a suitable long-term security and compliance plan. 


With both the near-term and the long-term in mind, Command E sought a strong end-to-end solution that would position the company to stay on top of security and compliance not just for the audit period, but on an ongoing basis going forward.

The Solution

Command E found the answer to its security and compliance search in Vanta. Working with Vanta and The Cadence Group, one of Vanta’s stellar audit partners, Command E’s SOC 2 unfolded seamlessly. Command E’s auditors were responsive and easily able to help unblock any sticking points along the way, while giving them best practices from working for companies at Command E’s stage. Additionally, the team was able to supply Command E with insights as to how the company’s security needs might evolve over time.

The combination of the Vanta platform and an auditor who'd worked with a lot of other startups, who had familiarity with best practices and the tools and platforms we leverage, made our audit feel much more painless than we'd heard SOC 2 could be.
