Whistic is the single source of trust for buyers and sellers, and our partner ecosystem is an integral part of making that vision a reality for our customers. We partner with world-class organizations across a variety of partner types and are actively pursuing new partnership opportunities.
We support the world’s most respected security and privacy frameworks, and we partner with several of the premier associations behind these standards. One of the goals of our alliance and association partnerships is to help improve vendor security for association members and membership-based communities. Whistic also provides thought leadership, industry insights, innovative product offerings, and promotes the use of standardized frameworks in order to improve information security across the global communities we jointly serve. In certain cases, Whistic may also serve as the vendor security platform of choice for its association and alliance partners.
The Cloud Security Alliance (CSA) is the world’s leading organization dedicated to defining and raising awareness of best practices to help ensure a secure cloud computing environment.
CSA and Whistic identified the need for a lighter-weight assessment questionnaire in order to accommodate the shift to cloud procurement models, and to enable cybersecurity professionals to more easily engage with cloud vendors. CAIQ-Lite was jointly developed by CSA and Whistic to meet the demands of an increasingly fast-paced cybersecurity environment where adoption is becoming paramount when selecting a vendor security questionnaire.
The Vendor Security Alliance (VSA) is a coalition of companies committed to improving Internet security by directly focusing on helping companies protect against the risks associated with third-party vendor relationships. Whistic is the exclusive platform trusted by the Vendor Security Alliance to manage its industry-leading security assessment program.
“We needed a partner to help streamline and scale our organization’s impact, and we were very impressed with Whistic’s focus on vendor security, its commitment to customers, and it’s user-interface. We’re happy to partner with the Whistic team and provide our members with an intuitive solution for their vendor assessment needs.”

Many organizations struggle to find the headcount needed to perform an adequate level of vendor risk assessments, not to mention that they are likely performing these assessments via spreadsheets and email.
Rather than accept the risk of not taking action to address the vendor security needs of their organization, Whistic enables customers to leverage partner headcount resources by engaging a Managed Assessment Provider that can perform assessments as a service.
Whistic enables assessment, consulting, and firms, as well as security consultants and managed security services providers to utilize their expertise to serve customers with a flexible offering.
