AuditBoard
Auditboard is especially useful for SOX control testing. It is very convenient having all our information on a single platform. It is easy to communicate PBC requests to clients, store control testing working papers for review, communicate deficiencies and build dashboards to provide visual statistics. Situations where it might not be useful are for organizations that are smaller in size where the templates don't fit well with their internal audit/controls program. There is a significant amount of testing required before using the platform, and adapting working papers to fit in well with AuditBoard

Vanta seems excellent for startups, but I expect that they would be even more useful at bigger companies. I think it really helps people that haven't done SOC2 before. I also think it would help in monitoring compliance across teams with many users. If the budget is extremely tight, I think it would be possible to save money by not using it.

  • API driven capabilities offer a very easy way to connect your systems to their application.
  • It was mostly intuitive to figure out what needed to be configured.
  • I like how responsive they have been and how they have been able to outline the entire process for us from the start to the end.

Cons
AuditBoard
  • We used to perform our Risk Control Analysis (RCA) for each audit's planning in an Excel spreadsheet. Once we purchased the Risk Oversight module, AuditBoard helped us convert the RCA to a system function rather than a spreadsheet. At first, we lost some of the functionality the spreadsheet provided, but AuditBoard did continue to help us build and work towards a solution more similar to what we previously had. Though happy with it, it's still not perfect. As one example, I'd like to be able to link actual Ops Audit work steps that cover the risk and controls being outlined in the RCA, rather than just adding a comment to state which steps cover them. More of a preference, I suppose.
  • I also had demoed their beta Resources and Scheduling module, but it didn't have enough functionality at the time to work for how we put the quarterly Internal Audit schedule together (using Excel). One thing I recall was that you couldn't pull in SOX controls or non-chargeable work (such as education or administration) to auditor's schedules; it was meant to schedule the Ops Audits only. It is possible they have already fixed or improved this; I just haven't seen the updated version.

  • In my opinion, they make it very hard to contact them when you need something.
  • In my experience, they write their contracts to make it difficult to cancel service.
  • In my experience, they have no policy for refunds in addition to their [...] contacts.

I remember there were a lot of sync issues when I used the internally developed software, but that's probably because a few people were working on the same project at the same time. I have not come across this issue in AuditBoard

Vanta's reporting was far superior, the price was competitive but my engineers running the project said that working with vanta would save them significant amount of time. Secondly vanta had more integrations so they could plug directly into the systems we use!

  • Hard to quantify. It was cheaper than the tool we had and we were able to get rid of standalone tool for surveys. overall, just better user experience for all.
