Enhancements to control ownership

We introduced control ownership a couple months ago, and already, this new feature is getting a lot of attention. To enhance the usability of control ownership, we’ve made it easy to assign multiple controls to individual owners. You can also filter to view controls owned by offboarded users—you’ll want to reassign these to active users. Last, we’ve added an analytics section to visualize your team’s control distribution and completion progress.

Visit the Compliance page to begin assigning controls to owners

Processing Integrity and Privacy default controls

Vanta now offers a default control set for SOC 2’s Processing Integrity and Privacy TSC (Trust Services Criteria). This update provides a more streamlined SOC 2 audit prep experience. If you’d like to enable Processing Integrity and Privacy controls for your audit, please notify your auditor or Customer Success Manager.

Policies get approvers and bulk approve option

We want to make it easier for policy creators to get change approvals using Vanta. Typically, this approval process happens off-Vanta, via email or Slack. With policy approvals, you can now assign approvers who will be notified when they have a policy to review. Approvers can review policies in Vanta one-by-one or bulk approve all policies.

Try assigning a policy approver on the Polices page


VMware Workspace One MDM

Vanta now supports VMware Workspace One (formerly AirWatch). VMware Workspace One is a popular MDM for larger organizations and was highly requested from customers. Use this new integration to automatically populate Vanta with devices managed by Workspace One.

Integration support for monday.com

Vanta now supports monday.com. This new integration automatically pulls tracked security issues to demonstrate that they are being assigned to owners, prioritized, and closed within a set SLA. Additionally, you can not review user access to monday.com on the Access page.

PCI Compliance Selection Guide

Determine Your PCI Compliance Level

If your organization processes, stores, or transmits cardholder data, you must comply with the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS), a global mandate created by major credit card companies. Compliance is mandatory for any business that accepts credit card payments.

When establishing strategies for implementing and maintaining PCI compliance, your organization needs to understand what constitutes a Merchant or Service Provider, and whether a Self Assessment Questionnaire (SAQ) or Report on Compliance (ROC) is most applicable to your business.

Answer a few short questions and we’ll help identify your compliance level.

Identify your PCI SAQ or ROC level

The PCI Security Standards Council has established the below criteria for Merchant and Service Provider validation. Use these descriptions to help determine the SAQ or ROC that best applies to your organization.

Good news! Vanta supports all of the following compliance levels:

SAQ A

A SAQ A is required for Merchants that do not require the physical presence of a credit card (like an eCommerce, mail, or telephone purchase). This means that the Merchant’s business has fully outsourced all cardholder data processing to PCI DSS compliant third party Service Providers, with no electronic storage, processing, or transmission of any cardholder data on the Merchant’s system or premises.

Get PCI DSS certified

SAQ A-EP

A SAQ A-EP is similar to a SAQ A, but is a requirement for Merchants that don't receive cardholder data, but control how cardholder data is redirected to a PCI DSS validated third-party payment processor.

SAQ D
for service providers

A SAQ D includes over 200 requirements and covers the entirety of PCI DSS compliance. If you are a Service Provider, a SAQ D is the only SAQ you’re eligible to complete.

Use our PCI checklist

ROC
Level 1 for service providers

A Report on Compliance (ROC) is an annual assessment that determines your organization’s ability to protect cardholder data. If you’re a Merchant that processes over six million transactions annually or a Service Provider that processes more than 300,000 transactions annually, your organization is responsible for both a ROC and an Attestation of Compliance (AOC).
