Introducing Vanta's Connectors API

September 13, 2022

Securing the internet through automation and openness


Organizations of all sizes seek to automate their security and compliance programs to the greatest extent possible—without compromising on effectiveness or spending beyond what is necessary. In 2016, Vanta led the SaaS industry’s shift in viewing compliance as an event that happens once a year to an automated, always-on approach. 

Vanta uses real-time connections from your most critical business tools and assets to provide a clear roadmap towards security certification. Along the way, our platform continuously monitors your business system and surfaces potential issues. 

The trust we help customers foster with their end-users relies on a system of openness in the form of integrations. With 75+ integrations ranging from cloud services, identity providers, MDMs, HR tools, version control, and beyond—Vanta’s in the business of securing the world’s most widely used online tools for the benefit of our customers and their users.

The Connectors API

To extend the openness and full potential of the Vanta platform, we’re introducing our Connectors API. The Connectors API unlocks the potential for any developer to send pertinent security information to Vanta. In turn, Vanta users are more secure for having real-time data from their various business services under one roof for ongoing monitoring. 

Technology partners can use the Connectors API to build and publish their own integrations on Vanta’s integration network. Partner-built integrations look and operate like native connections, working seamlessly for Vanta users. Data originating from third-party services are shared via the Connectors API, resulting in increased security and compliance automation for our mutual customers.

For Vanta customers, the launch of the Connectors API demonstrates our commitment to make Vanta the most advanced, technology-forward cloud compliance platform on the market. By using both third-party and native built integrations, you can rest assured knowing that Vanta can adapt to your evolving tech stack as your organization grows overtime.  

Celebrating our technology partners

We’re excited to launch the Connectors API with nearly a dozen technology partners. Our launch partners bring extended coverage to the Vanta platform, including new integrations for incident management, security training, MDM, task tracking, and secret storage.

To highlight the value our technology partners bring to our users, consider Incident.io, whose novel Slack-based incident management solution enables teams to easily and quickly assemble to tackle critical service issues. Or Kolide, whose endpoint security management tool helps remote teams identify potential security threats and coaches employees to self-remediate security tasks all within Slack.

Metadata flows securely from technology partners like Incident.io and Kolide to power important Vanta pages and tests. Vanta users can review account access information and satisfy compliance standard requirements by using partner-built integrations. Mutual customers recognize increased value for both services and are more likely to renew when your service becomes part of the compliance solution.

Connectors API for Vanta customers

Opening the Connectors API to technology partners is just the beginning. In the coming months, we’ll begin rolling out the API to Vanta customers who can use the framework to write their own private connections. Stay tuned!

By connecting your tech stack to Vanta, your options are limitless in customizing how you’d like Vanta to leverage first-party data for continuous security monitoring and compliance automation. This unlocks a truly customizable approach to how your system and Vanta communicate to keep your business and end-users secure. Stay tuned for updates on this exciting development.
