Ease of use
One company was looking for a structured process for obtaining SOC 2 compliance and a way to keep security best practices in place. They adopted Vanta for a streamlined SOC 2 compliance strategy and their Founder and COO had this to say about their experience:
“We found Vanta to be an amazingly straight-forward way to pursue our SOC2. If you're running a SaaS business like ours, Vanta's integrations with AWS, Google, and all our other providers meant that performing control checks was automated and easy. We were anticipating many months of work to get our SOC2, and Vanta cut down our expected effort by an order of magnitude.”
An IT executive adopted Vanta for SOC 2 compliance and shared this review:
“Vanta is remarkably easy to get up and running and once it's working all we have to do is follow-up on the actions they send us. Getting and staying compliant is easier than it ever has been.
[Vanta] constantly ships new features that make our lives easier and if there are ever bugs, they act on them quickly.”
Security compliance automation
A small startup was looking to implement an infosec program nearly from scratch, but also had some existing manual labor-based programs that they needed to replace. They were concerned that the level of effort could be a major obstacle to a strong security posture and eventually obtaining a certification. Vanta provided the team with vetted vendors that could help support the auditing and certification process. They shared this review:
“One of the most immediately impactful features centers around Vanta's excellent integrations which automate a massive amount of otherwise manual labor. Vanta has always had highly responsive customer support for issues and feature requests. Throughout our time using this platform Vanta has shipped many time-saving feature updates and releases. These are great and keep the platform delivering on that primary goal of ensuring compliance while adding efficiency and reliability. The regular and actionable email alerts allow our administrators to stay on top of any security gaps or updates with the information needed for follow-up.
The onboarding tools make it especially easy to get new employees or contractors set up and tracked in a way that aligns with company policy while being simple and streamlined for the user.”
Continuous security monitoring
Several reviewers are still in the process of getting SOC 2 certified. One customer adopted Vanta in the hopes of saving time in the enablement of SOC 2. They have this to say about their ongoing Vanta experience:
"We have immediately realized benefits by saving countless developer hours per week when it comes to both identifying and tackling security vulnerabilities in our cloud infrastructure.
Constant monitoring of our key services in the cloud allows our engineering team to rapidly identify areas that need to be worked on and triage issues identified by Vanta. Vanta gives us peace of mind when going in for critical review periods, such as the SOC2 audit. Over time we have come to rely on Vanta for our core security needs as the company grows.”
An Engineering Manager who is using Vanta to become SOC 2 and ISO 27001 certified shared how their expectations of a one and done process has changed since adopting Vanta:
“Vanta doesn't let us forget about security issues. They are alerting us all the time about things that should be improved, new hires that didn't go through the security training, containers with vulnerabilities, repositories without owners or descriptions, and so on. All those problems happen frequently, and having a tool that tells us when we are doing something wrong is amazing. It also offers us seamless integration with AWS, allowing us to bulk tag our resources, dramatically reducing the manual job there.”
