The Access page allows you to review your employees access amongst the vendors you have integrated with Vanta.

The Access Page

The purpose of this page is to satisfy controls related to access management. You should avoid having shared accounts or accounts that do not have an owner. While Vanta will try to automatically map owners for certain integrations, you may have to manually map the user from the service to the employee in Vanta. If you have any service accounts, it is recommended to mark them as Not a Person.

  • From the left-hand navigation panel, select Access
  • Each line item gives you information about the Owner of each account, which groups they belong to, and the status of the user:
