Vanta is the #1 Leader in G2’s Winter 2023 Grid Reports for Security Compliance

We are excited to share that Vanta has been named the #1 Leader in G2’s Winter 2023 Grid® Report for Security Compliance. We’ve also been recognized as the #1 Leader in G2’s Cloud Compliance category for the sixth consecutive season, and retained leadership in Vendor Management, Vendor Security and Privacy Assessment, Cloud Security, and IT Asset Management for multiple seasons. Vanta is the leader in a total of 19 G2 categories.

Vanta is the #1 Leader in Cloud Compliance

“Vanta is fundamentally transforming the way more than 4,000 companies establish trust,” said Christina Cacioppo, CEO, Vanta. “No other company in G2's Security Compliance category has the end-to-end capabilities that Vanta provides. We enable a holistic visibility into an organization’s risk, enrich those findings with contextual data, and help remediate and track issues within your organization—all in a way that’s demonstrable to customers and partners. G2’s recognition further validates the progress we’re making towards achieving our vision of making security continuous—not a point-in-time check—for our customers around the world.”

Inclusion in the G2 Winter 2023 Grid® reports is based on receiving a high volume of positive reviews. G2 also considers additional metrics from publicly available information and third-party sources.

What customers are saying

Our customers have praised Vanta on G2 for our auditor network, automation, speed to compliance, and support. Here are just a few of the recent reviews from our customers:

  • “Vanta helped me find an auditor and made that process so much smoother… the list of needed policies helped us to create internal policies and saved me weeks of writing and anguish. Thanks Vanta!” — Head of Engineering

  • “Vanta made SOC 2 readiness a snap. We completed our readiness program in under four weeks… I'm not sure how else we could have achieved it that quickly with another tool.” — Chief Technology Officer

  • “We found Vanta to be an amazingly straight-forward way to pursue our SOC 2. We were anticipating many months of work to get our SOC 2, but Vanta cut down our expected effort by an order of magnitude.” — Founder and COO

  • “Our Customer Success Manager was always available to answer questions, offer advice, and keep us moving forward. I can’t imagine going through compliance preparation and the audit without Vanta.” — Director, IT Operations

“Rankings on G2 reports are based on data provided to us by real software buyers,” said Sara Rossio, Chief Product Officer, G2. “Potential buyers know they can trust these insights when researching and selecting software because they’re rooted in vetted, verified, and authentic reviews.”

Setting the pace for security

G2’s recognition of Vanta comes on the heels of continued growth and momentum. Last month, we held our inaugural conference, VantaCon, which brought together the most innovative minds in security and compliance, including speakers from Gusto, J.P. Morgan, and Crowdstrike, among others.

At the event, Vanta introduced and showcased a series of new innovations, including Access Reviews which automates the once-manual, time-consuming access reviews process and Trust Reports, a first-of-a-kind reporting mechanism that enables organizations to publicly display their security and compliance status in real time. Trust Report customers have seen their deal cycles accelerate by 30% as a result of spending meaningfully less time filling out security questionnaires.

What’s next for Vanta?

Coming soon in beta, Vanta’s forthcoming enhanced Vendor Management solution will help security teams manage vendors by connecting with integrations such as Google Workspace or ERP software like Quickbooks or NetSuite. By importing all vendors from across a company, Vanta will automatically assign risk based on category of solution and the type and sensitivity of the data the solution stores -  enabling security teams to better structure their vendor risk analysis.

The leadership rankings by G2 are the latest industry validations for Vanta this year, including ranking #25 in the Inc. 5000 2022 list. Vanta was also recognized by Y Combinator as a “Top Private Company”, and was named a 2022 Intelligent Applications Top 40 company by Madrona Ventures.

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.


Does your business offer services to customers who are interested in your level of PCI compliance?


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:


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


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.

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

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).
