Effectively managing a fast-growing security program requires both technical knowledge as well as the ability to empower others to take action on important security tasks. From understanding the impact of failing serverless functions to updating company policies, the breadth of activity required to run day-to-day security operations is vast. That’s why this month, we’re excited to highlight several new features that are designed to simplify daily operations and make it easier to use Vanta to run an evolving security program.
AWS Lambda serverless monitoring
As more companies take advantage of serverless computing, it’s important that businesses incorporate this innovative infrastructure solution into their security programs. To better support serverless monitoring, Vanta customers can now track their AWS Lambda functions, alongside other critical resources, such as storage buckets or relational databases.
AWS Lambda functions are continuously monitored by tests that check for error rate alerts ingested from AWS CloudWatch and Datadog. Customers can rest assured knowing their service’s critical Lambda functions are included in the holistic security view that Vanta provides.
Asana task creation
We recognize that much of the day-to-day work around security and compliance occurs outside of Vanta. To better integrate into your team’s existing workflows, Vanta now supports Asana task tracking. Easily create Asana tasks within Vanta test pages to better manage and distribute your team’s work.
With support for Shortcut, Jira, and now Asana, our growing collection of integrated task-tracking tools gives your team the flexibility to decide how to best incorporate Vanta into your team’s workflows.
Faster path to audit
Native policy editor
Policies play a crucial role in running an effective security program and are necessary for a successful SOC 2 or ISO 27001 audit. Vanta currently supports policy management with out-of-the-box templates, employee acceptance tracking, and easy policy renewal tools.
To enhance the policy management experience, Vanta now supports in-app editing of existing, new, and uploaded policies. The native editor makes it easy to update or create policies directly within Vanta.
With this update, we’re excited to make managing policies a more seamless experience and to help shorten your path towards a successful audit!
