Otta's take on Vanta

Sam Franklin headshot

Sam Franklin

CEO of Otta

The security auditing process is usually very time-consuming, taking many hours to complete, and it is often difficult for start-ups to invest time into such a process. Yet, the benefits of security accreditation are enormous, mainly as many such businesses are working globally and need ways to demonstrate security compliance to one another. Vanta works specifically with start-ups to help them complete and pass security audits such as SOC 2 and ISO 27001.

The company is a compliance portal and security monitoring platform that businesses use to assess their risk levels. Vanta carries out a pre-audit of a company's digital security and highlights areas that need to be worked on before a full analysis of all threats is carried out. Other businesses such as Datadog or PagerDuty offer similar security monitoring services, but Vanta monitors its customers throughout the year, allowing any issues to be identified and addressed early on.

Vanta has found a valuable cybersecurity niche within the giant SaaS market. Companies such as Lattice, Clubhouse, and Calm are all customers, demonstrating a growing trend for companies to manage their cybersecurity proactively, which Vanta should be able to take advantage of to further grow and develop into the future.

Company values

  • Put customers first: We center our customers and their needs in our work, and invest in long-term relationships with them.
  • Do what it says on the tin: We hold ourselves to the highest standards, and are truthful, humble, and accountable, especially when we (inevitably) make mistakes along the way.
  • Lead with resilience: We don’t let day-to-day volatility knock us off course - we operate with resilience and fortitude. We see rapid change as an opportunity to continue redefining an industry in service of our customers.
  • Bias for action: We make decisions and act quickly even in the face of uncertainty. When we get new information, we’re comfortable with reversing decisions as long as we move quickly so we can iterate and learn.
  • Decide with frameworks: We develop and use frameworks to evaluate alternatives neutrally, focus requests for feedback, explain the “why” behind decisions, and ensure that similar decisions in the future are made consistently.
  • Presume good intent: We naturally support and uplift our teammates and partners. We are kind to and respectful of Vanta’ns, partners, customers, and even competitors - and we presume good intent, especially with teammates.
