Our customers help to drive our product roadmap, have openly shared their successes with Vanta, and have helped create new opportunities for us. We are proud to say that we now have over 2,000 customers and many of whom can be attributed to the word of mouth successes of our customer base. So, thank you to our customers for supporting us as we continue to do our best to support you.
A very busy year
Vanta has added four new compliance standards this year. We now offer five compliance standards total, including SOC 2, HIPAA, ISO 27001, PCI DSS, and GDPR. We’ve also added 32 new integrations, making it even easier for our customers to get audits done in the fastest way possible. Our user interface has also modernized and simplified in 2021 as well, allowing for users to see more assessments, audits, and policies in one streamlined place.
This year has led to some big growth for the company. We’re excited to share that we’ve expanded our expertise internationally. Our compliance standards and continuous monitoring platform are leveraged by customers spanning 45 countries.

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).
