In the fast-paced world of compliance and risk management, collecting and organizing evidence is a task that often becomes cumbersome and time-consuming. Drata's latest innovation, the Evidence Library, is a game-changer for companies grappling with these challenges.

This breakthrough tool is not just a repository; it's a comprehensive solution for managing manually uploaded evidence with unprecedented ease and efficiency.

The Problem of Evidence Collection

Traditionally, evidence collection has been a manual and disjointed process. Companies often find themselves downloading evidence from various sources and then uploading it to their compliance systems.

This process is not only time-consuming but also prone to errors, especially when updating evidence, which requires re-linking to the same controls and ensuring version history is maintained. Drata's Evidence Library directly addresses these pain points.

The Evidence Library: A One-Stop Solution

1. Centralized Evidence Hub: Drata's Evidence Library serves as a single destination for all manually uploaded evidence, offering a streamlined process for uploading and managing this evidence. It replaces the need for multiple tools and repositories, bringing everything under one roof for better organization and accessibility.

2. Evidence Upload and Automated Version History: Evidence Library simplifies the evidence update process. With one-click sync capabilities, users can upload and link evidence in a single step. Drata automatically links updated evidence to previously linked controls and maintains a version history, enhancing transparency and audit-readiness.

3. Support for Cloud Storage Providers: Evidence Library allows users to connect their cloud storage providers like Dropbox, OneDrive, Sharepoint, and Google Drive (coming soon). This feature means that evidence can be uploaded directly from the cloud, saving significant time and reducing the risk of human error.

4. Real-Time Cloud Sync: Beginning next year, Drata will enable real-time syncing with cloud drives. Any updates made to evidence in the cloud will be automatically reflected in Drata, ensuring that the most current version is always available and linked correctly.

5. Enhanced User Experience: The Evidence Library not only streamlines the evidence management process but also significantly reduces the time and effort required by compliance teams. This efficient management allows teams to focus more on strategic aspects of their compliance programs.

Drata's Evidence Library is more than just a feature; it's a comprehensive solution that transforms the way companies handle evidence for compliance. It addresses the core challenges of evidence management and solves them faster, easier, and with minimal manual headaches.
