Vanta partners with Crowdstrike
Vanta announced a partnership with Crowdstrike to extend its security offerings and assist Crowdstrike’s customers with compliance. The partnership includes deep product integration between the two companies, Vanta’s inclusion in the Crowdstrike store, and Crowdstrike investing in Vanta’s Series B round.
“Compliance is critical to ensure that the proper guardrails are in place for growing organizations, and Vanta is a leader in compliance automation through seamless integrations with the most in-demand security and infrastructure providers,” said Michael Sentonas, chief technology officer at CrowdStrike. “We chose to invest in Vanta because the team shares our vision of breaking down silos and unifying data across an organization.”
The two companies announced the customer-centric partnership at Fal.Con 2022, CrowdStrike’s in-person cybersecurity conference from September. Fal.Con hosts discussions about the future of cybersecurity amongst IT professionals, CrowdStrike experts, security thought leaders, and technical advisors.
Vanta team members joined Fal.Con to discuss what they’ve learned from securing over 3,000 quickly-growing companies. Rob Picard, Head of Security at Vanta, spoke at the Partner Power Theater Session at Fal.Con. His presentation, “Pragmatic principles for startup security,” covered Vanta’s advice for quickly-growing companies and Rob’s frameworks for building a security program.
Rob also spoke with Dave Vellante from SiliconAngle’s theCUBE about the CrowdStrike/Vanta partnership and avenues for product and go-to-market integration while at Fal.Con. Watch Rob’s conversation with theCUBE below:
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.

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
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).
