Whistic Partners With anecdotes to Provide Vendors a One-stop Shop to House Their Security and Compliance Information

November 08, 2022

SALT LAKE CITY--()--Today, Whistic, the leading vendor security network for both buyers and sellers, announced a partnership with anecdotes, the first operating system (OS) for Compliance. The strategic partnership streamlines information security compliance efforts for vendors while providing companies with advanced automation capabilities and full visibility into their compliance posture. In addition, it enables users to consolidate their security documentation, including SOC 2 reports, ISO certificates and other compliance attestations into a free Whistic Profile.

“Whistic and anecdotes are committed to increasing transparency between vendors and their customers,” said Sunil D’Souza, Vice President of Business Development and Partnerships at Whistic. “This partnership is a big step forward toward helping companies be more transparent and efficient by giving them the ability to proactively publish and share all of their security documentation with customers before being asked for it, all while enjoying anecdotes’ advanced automation capabilities.”

As part of the partnership, every anecdotes customer will have access to create a Whistic Basic Profile for free. With a Basic Profile, businesses can self-assess against many of the most commonly used standard questionnaires and upload other security documents and compliance information supported by the anecdotes Compliance OS. This Profile provides customers with a one-stop shop of everything they need to conduct a security review.

Additionally, vendors will be able to publish their Basic Profiles to the Whistic Trust Catalog, which enables customers to conduct zero-touch assessments of their security posture without any extra work required of the vendors. This saves infosec and compliance teams on both sides of the transaction countless hours that were once spent sending information back and forth until the assessment was complete.

“This partnership is the perfect solution for those who seek advanced automation capabilities while building trust with their ecosystem,” said Ryan Lieser, anecdotes’ VP of Alliances and Partnership. “It opens a gateway for a new standard of data-based trust that can be leveraged for many business-use cases. We look forward to strengthening our technology partnership with Whistic to make transparency accessible to all businesses.”
