Overall Satisfaction with Vanta

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.
  • Clarity of compliance.
  • Dashboard of tasks.
  • Ease of Use
  • Will allow the company to attract more partners and clients.
  • Spotlight on deeper security needs
  • Provides better organization of assets
Both were SOC2 focused while Vanta seemed to allow deeper examination and expansion beyond SOC2

Do you think Vanta delivers good value for the price?


Are you happy with Vanta's feature set?


Did Vanta live up to sales and marketing promises?


Did implementation of Vanta go as expected?


Would you buy Vanta again?


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.
