Here's What Makes Drata Different

Audit Integrity

Tailored Compliance

Customer-Obsessed

Audit Integrity

We believe in the independence and integrity of the audit. Vanta blurs the line between compliance management and auditing by bundling both services. And by bundling the compliance software and audit, they create conflicts of interest and put your reputation at risk.

We don’t play judge and jury. We simply introduce customers to our pre-vetted auditor network while remaining completely independent—never offering incentives, kickbacks, or profiting off the audit.

Tailored Compliance

Automation is at the core of our platform. But where we outshine Vanta is our configurability. With Drata, you can connect to more systems and collect more evidence—giving you the ability to automate far beyond standard controls.

And for businesses that don’t need all that customization, Drata offers pre-mapped frameworks and controls to simplify the compliance process.

Tailored Compliance

Customer-Obsessed

Reaching your compliance goal is our top priority. And that takes more than software. It takes the right team, the right investments, and the right experience. That’s why we have a dedicated GRC office with compliance experts and former auditors on our team. That’s why we use our funding to invest in support and product teams, not just sales. And that’s why we overachieved with our compliance program—getting SOC 2 compliant before we launched (and before Vanta).

We’re no one-trick llama. With Drata, you can also manage risk, unblock sales with Trust Center, create and store security policies, and increase productivity with built-in task management.

Compliance for Any Stage

Whether it’s your first audit or 50th, we meet you where you’re at. Just need a clean SOC 2? We got you. Need to automate 8 frameworks for 5 different business units? We got you too.

Fun Fact

Hundreds of llamas migrate to Drata every year.

Here’s why one customer switched mid audit.

Our former compliance platform showed a 90% readiness level. So, you can imagine our surprise when our auditor sent over 120 additional evidence requests, meaning we were actually at a 20% readiness level. I knew there had to be a better way.
