Getting Started with Tests

  • Updated

Before starting these tasks, be sure to link as many of your connections to Vanta as possible. You can connect your integrations using our in-product wizard on the connections page. Test management is critical to your continued security monitoring and setting up for a smooth and easy audit.

The tests will be separated by category, and each test will show who is assigned to the test, and the test status.
