If you're anything like me, you've been working diligently to take advantage of all of the automations that Vanta has to offer. That includes integrating a number of products and applications in your Vanta instance, and adding more as Vanta continues to roll-out new integrations. While integrations are a great way to streamline your compliance and security processes, sometimes, you go back and look at an integration and wonder, "Why did they integrate that again?"
I actually just had this come up today so, here's a helpful tip!
This applies to current integrations (those that have a white "Manage" button) and any available integrations (those with the purple "Connect" button). In your Vanta Agent instance, in the navigation bar:
- Navigate to "Integrations" (at the bottom)
- Filter by "Available"
- Click on "View Details" for any available or connected integration.
- Review the integration details, list of automated tests (linked), and list of controls (linked) supported/impacted by the integration.
When I clicked on the controls & test list a pop-out (not pop-up) appeared. I copied and pasted the list into a document to look each one up individually as needed - specifically the controls.
For us, moving forward, this is a great place to go when we want to know "What impacts are there to my compliance workflow if I were to add/remove an product from our catalog?"
In my experience, there are things that will double-cover you on certain controls and tests, but YMMV.
Hope this helps!
