The Vanta software tool is being used with our Information Technology & Information Security departments to continue our SOC2 compliance after the company-wide SOC2 audit from August to November 2021.

This is helping us address any security concerns before the auditor needs to inquire on a resolution or require an exemption to be implemented.
  • SOC2
  • Ease of Use
  • Explanation of Steps to Resolve
  • Better Explanations.
  • More Detailed Resolutions.
  • Allows Greater Auditor Editing of Extraneous Tasks.
Great for a small to medium sized business that needs to handle data securely and provide compliance assurance internally as well to its partners, customers, and potential clients. Relatively simple to use and integrate although perhaps too simple for larger more complex businesses with more expansive needs and various SOC2 section compliances.

We've begun our journey for Soc2 certification. Vanta helped us with any steps required for preparation, contacts, and monitoring. Their customer success is great. The tool works fine and we're reaching the end of our audit period without any trouble. We just did what Vanta suggested we do.
  • Soc2 guidance and contacts building.
  • Well monitoring the infrastructure.
  • Well monitoring the people requirements.
  • Cannot differentiate Heroku review apps.
  • Vanta agent misses some HD encryption settings.
  • More than one Google Workspace setup.
Vanta is an all-inclusive Soc2 readiness tool. Its customer success support is great. The tool works well and makes the process easy to manage. I cannot imagine handling those steps manually. The success of the process highly depends on the toolset you use and its integration with Vanta. If you use a tool that's not integrated with Vanta the automation would be less powerful.

Vanta has made it much easier than expected to get started with the SOC2 process. They streamline a lot of the confusing pieces and save us valuable time. We had never gone through a SOC2 before, so the help getting started was crucial, as otherwise, it would be hard to keep track of what is involved. My understanding is that they also streamline things on the auditor's side, which made the total price of the SOC2 audit more reasonable than I feared.
  • SOC2 compliance tracking
  • SOC2 outline
  • SOC2 auditor search process
  • Some of the technical integrations are still buggy
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.

Fast SOC2 type 2 completion. Needed it done in less than a year. We were able to get there and also reduces our overall cost in engineering and auditing by at least 60%. When using Vanta for a SOC2 audit, it actively monitors things like user management, payroll, and other HR systems, Cloud platforms. For users that also have their day-to-day tasks to complete, this is a huge help
  • 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.
  • Alerts and employee onboarding and offboarding were not entirely complete when we started using the product.
  • It would be nice if we could assign policies to specific people in the Vanta app.
  • Sometimes, refreshing the tests when you make the changes to pass takes a little more time than desired.
Vanta provides a lot of actionable tasks to make our system more secure and reliable. It is easy to connect to our services and ingest the signals that create the tasks. The monitoring part also helps by sending a daily digest of new issues the team needs to work on.

The risk management does not take all of the BAU risks of an organisation into account, instead only providing valid output against technical controls or some policy controls.

Vanta does an excellent job automating evidence collection SOC controls by providing integrations with the tools my team uses. They've made it very easy to bootstrap and execute a compliance program without hiring additional staff.
  • Integrations with source control and infrastructure providers.
  • Guidance around what makes a company's policy secure.
  • Portals that supply our auditors with everything they need to write their reports.
  • I'd love to see more options for integrations. ie a Datadog integration that checks on infrastructure monitoring.
  • Providing a general area for document sharing.
Vanta's well suited for a company that's just getting started with its compliance journey and needs some guidance on how to get started.

We are using Vanta as a software solution to accelerate our SOC 2 compliance path. The software and whole team at Vanta have been great at helping enable our compliance path on a rapid trajectory. It would have taken us much longer to get everything together without Vanta's help and we plan on continuing to use it in the future.
  • SOC 2
  • Compliance
  • Security review
  • International background check verification
  • Seamless connection to audit firms
  • Changing tests in the middle of a review period
Vanta is great for fast-growing software companies that are looking for a rubber stamp of approval of SOC 2. While mostly a useless standard, corporate America for legacy reasons still values the signaling effect and Vanta helps streamline that process.If you are looking for SOC 2, get Vanta setup and stop worrying about SOC 2.

Companies looking for HR SaaS products have a checklist of items they need before moving forward. The companies required us to be Soc2 Type 2 and with Vanta it was a breeze. They did and do continuous monitoring of our systems and it truly just makes security and compliance easy. I'm not sure what the process would have been like for Assembly's security team if we had to do it manually or with archaic processes but it would not have been as easy as it was. I'm truly appreciative of Vanta and how amazing of a partner they have been to Assembly!!!!
  • Compliance
  • Security
  • Partnership
  • Ongoing support
  • They truly do what we needed them to do really well
I can't think of a negative but they helped us get Soc2 Type2 complaint easily and with that, it's paid for the cost of Vanta 100x over. It should honestly be a no-brainer for companies who work b2b to get compliant. Think about it this way, if you were to hire 3 engineers to monitor security for you, what would that cost? If you use Vanta, you have a once-a-year fee and you know you are always in compliance!

We use Vanta for our SOCII certification and ongoing compliance.
  • Streamlines reporting and compliance
  • Provides an easy administrative platform for ongoing usage
  • Made SOCII certification easy
  • Add NDA signatures prior to sharing SOCII info in automatically
Vanta makes SOCII certification so easy. Team time to manage the process and ongoing maintenance were reduced by at least 80%. This software made SOCII a breeze.
