Security Compass, developer of the industry’s first Balanced Development Automation (BDA) platform, today announced that it has been named to the 2021 list of Best WorkplacesTM in Canada for the third year in a row. An extensive and independent analysis by Great Place to Work® showed that Security Compass has one of the most inclusive and trust-building work cultures in Canada among organizations with 100-999 employees. Out of the top 50 companies, Security Compass is ranked number 24.

“Security Compass has prioritized creating a safe, equitable workplace where employees from all backgrounds feel welcome. I am extremely proud of this recognition, and especially of our employees’ role in ensuring that working at Security Compass is more than just a job,” said Michelle Brooks, VP of People & Culture, Security Compass. “After a year like 2020, our leadership team does not take for granted the importance of a supportive work environment, and we are working harder than ever to uphold our core company values of collaboration, ownership, authenticity, respect, and customer focus. Security Compass employees deserve full credit for our position on the GPTW list, as well as recent award wins for technology innovation.”

The list of Best Workplaces in Canada is determined by employee surveys that measure a company’s credibility, respect, fairness, camaraderie, and pride. To build a culture that meets and embodies these standards, Security Compass drives initiatives such as:

  • Learning and Growth Budget: Security Compass provides each employee with a learning and growth budget each calendar year. Every employee is encouraged to use this budget to either attend conferences, courses, or obtain certifications to help them get to the next level in their career.
  • Commitment to Diversity: Security Compass makes an intentional effort toward diversity, inclusion, belonging, and equity. This is driven through a Belonging Committee that is responsible for making suggestions, curating ideas, and leading change throughout the organization.
  • Open Paid Time Off and Flexible Hours: Security Compass understands the importance of personal time off for employees and offers open paid time off (PTO) that allows employees to take vacation, personal days, or sick days at their own discretion. By fostering a flexible schedule, employees are encouraged to work how they want, where they want, and when they want to help establish a healthy work-life balance.

In addition to being one of the top 50 Best Workplaces in Canada, Security Compass has received multiple awards in 2021 for continued product innovation. Security Compass’ flagship product, SD Elements, is the industry’s first Balanced Development Automation (BDA) platform that enables organizations to build secure digital products without compromising time to market.

Recent award wins include three 2021 Cybersecurity Excellence Awards: Gold for the categories Balanced Development Automation and Threat Modeling; and Silver for Application Security. Additionally, Security Compass was one of 10 Grand Trophy Winners in the 2021 Globee Cyber Security Global Excellence Awards as a result of winning in five categories: Gold for Application Security and Testing and Threat Modeling; Silver for Compliance & Vulnerability Management and Most Innovative Compliance Solution; and Bronze for Most Innovative Security Company of the Year and Governance, Risk & Compliance.
