Drata’s partner ecosystem is an integral part of our customer-centric philosophy, allowing us to expand the power of our offering for end-users. As an AWS partner, Drata provides customers with continuous control monitoring and evidence collection across their organization’s AWS footprint.

Now, we’re taking it one step further and announcing that the Drata platform is available on AWS Marketplace.

A Deepening Partnership With AWS 

Drata is deepening our AWS partnership with a recent membership in the AWS ISV Accelerate Program, a co-sell program for AWS Partners that provides better customer outcomes and assures mutual commitment from AWS and Drata.

"Since Drata's founding, we have worked with AWS, from technology support to go-to-market positioning,” says Kevin Kriebel, VP of Business Development at Drata. “By joining the AWS ISV Accelerate Program, we strengthen our commitment to our customers as we work together to promote compliance automation and technology infrastructure as well as simplified transactions in AWS Marketplace.” 

In addition to the ISV Accelerate Program, Drata has also passed an AWS Foundational Technical Review (FTR), adhering to best practices to reduce risks around security, reliability, and operational excellence outlined by the AWS Well-Architected Framework.

Passing the AWS FTR gives customers peace of mind in knowing Drata takes a holistic approach to its cloud security posture to proactively identify and resolve potential vulnerabilities, aligning with Drata’s mission of building trust through transparency.

About Drata’s AWS Integration

Connecting AWS to Drata offers end-users continuous monitoring on AWS through automated daily testing and evidence collection to validate the compliance posture of an organization’s AWS footprint for frameworks, standards, and regulations such as SOC 2, ISO 27001, PCI DSS, and several others. 

Additionally, Drata continuously discovers and imports all AWS virtual assets to streamline the asset collection and categorization process, helping to eliminate burdensome manual processes. This allows auditors to review in-scope assets without the need for end-user intervention.

Drata is constantly investing in the AWS ecosystem. This past week, Drata released an enhanced vulnerability scanning connection for AWS Inspector. The deep integration allows platform users to automate evidence collection around vulnerability scanning, accelerating the promise of continuous compliance automation. 

“Using both Drata and AWS hand-in-hand has made our journey to becoming SOC 2 Type 2 compliant painless," says Adam Ilowite, CEO at Axero Solutions, and a joint customer of AWS and Drata. "These platforms work together and have helped our organization improve our security protocols, and add automated control monitoring. It’s taken the headache out of our continuous compliance efforts.”

Drata will be at AWS re:Invent later this month. If you’re there, please send us a note at [email protected] and come say hi.
