Drata KnowBe4 Partnership

We have some big news.

KnowBe4 has selected Drata as their exclusive GRC partner. What does that mean? As they transition their KnowBe4 Compliance Manager (KCM) offering to a support-only model, they are encouraging all their current users to migrate to Drata for all their compliance needs.

What is KnowBe4?

A leading provider of security awareness training and simulated phishing, KnowBe4 has helped more than 60,000 organizations across the globe manage the ongoing problem of social engineering. KnowBe4 and Drata have an existing integration along with 300 joint customers, enabling customers to save hundreds of hours every year by automatically collecting evidence of personnel's security awareness training. 

As the company ends support for KCM, built with compliance, risk, policy, and vendor risk management modules, it has recommended its customers to migrate from KCM to Drata to continuously maintain and grow their GRC programs.

Why Did KnowBe4 Choose Drata?

After an exhaustive assessment of vendors in the market, KnowBe4 chose Drata for a few reasons. Here's what made Drata different:

  • Expansive product offerings: We offer end-to-end compliance automation for over 16 different frameworks. From evidence collection and storage to a built-in Trust Center, the Drata platform handles all things security and compliance.

  • Steadfast customer-centric values: We’re focused on delivering the highest quality user experience possible, and we implement that mindset at every level. Our product team pours over customer feedback when planning the roadmap, and requests from customers are often the first features that get built. Not only that, but our customer success team remains the best on the market, and our compliance advisory team has guided tens of thousands of customers along their compliance journey.

  • We Know KnowBe4: Having integrated with KnowBe4, we’re familiar with their KCM and their customers. This means a smooth sailing migration process and the ability to continue using other KnowBe4 products—win-win!

“We completed a thorough review of alternate options to best meet the needs of our KCM customers. We ultimately chose Drata because they provide a best-in-class compliance offering through their automation platform, an outstanding customer experience, and integrate with other KnowBe4 products.”

—Stu Sjouwerman, CEO of KnowBe4

At Drata, we invest in the relationships we make: with customers, partners, auditors, and even within our own teams. We appreciate the strides KnowBe4 has and will continue to make as an organization, and we are committed to providing their customers with unmatched automation and world-class support.
