The Company

Building professional relationships

Affinity is building the global platform to power relationship intelligence for professionals.With Affinity, you can find and drive deals with relationship intelligence based on your whole team’s network and activities.

The Challenge

Proving security to customers

Affinity wanted to ensure compliance with industry-leading security standards and secure consumer data. They also wanted an easy way to communicate their security practices to their customers.

The Solution

Swift audits and continuous monitoring

Achieving SOC 2 compliance with Vanta tackled both of Affinity’s needs at the same time. As Affinity started preparing for their SOC 2, Vanta supported them in their initial time investment to set up tooling and processes, ensuring that they would consistently comply with industry-leading controls. That initial preparation for their SOC 2 Type I report meant they needed only a few hours to get ready for their Type II report later in the year.

Once Affinity worked with Vanta to set up their compliance processes, the audit itself was a breeze. The standard week (or more) of work with an auditor to collect evidence was transformed into just a few hours over a video call — speedy, painless, and surprise-free. Vanta’s continuous monitoring provided Affinity’s auditor with access to ample evidence about their compliance with their established controls — making it quick and easy to verify compliance and issue their SOC 2 report, ready to share with their security-savvy customers.

The Impact

A solid security foundation

With security at the heart of their customers’ trust in their business, Affinity knew they wanted to go beyond checking a box on compliance — they wanted to improve security in a meaningful way. Vanta’s ongoing monitoring and alerting was key to making it happen.

Considering the efficiencies they’ve gained in preparing for and conducting audits, Affinity estimates they’ve reclaimed weeks of time every year by working with Vanta — time they can now use to focus on proactive, forward-looking security initiatives.

What’s a Rich Text element?

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.
