Drata unveils Adaptive Automation for streamlined compliance

Drata has unveiled a new offering, Adaptive Automation. Augmenting the scope of continuous control monitoring and evidence collection, Adaptive Automation empowers GRC professionals to save time and automate even more of their compliance program through customized tests within Drata’s platform, all from a no-code test builder.

The launch of Adaptive Automation allows customers to expand beyond Drata’s pre-built tests and easily deploy custom tests that best match their security and compliance needs. In order to support the massive scale of test automation and complex use cases, Drata refactored its automation engine, allowing customers to collect and validate evidence across more sources using nested conditions.

By implementing the creation of custom tests directly within the Drata platform, Adaptive Automation surpasses conventional limits of continuous monitoring to significantly broaden the definition of compliance automation.

Key features of Adaptive Automation include:

  • Expanded AWS services coverage: Increased from 16 to 44 AWS services, Drata has more than doubled the coverage of AWS service integrations to improve testing capabilities and coverage. Adaptive Automation will also expand to other cloud platforms, with support for Azure and Google Cloud Platform soon.
  • Streamlined audit processes: Well-documented custom tests ensure that auditors have a comprehensive understanding of each test, its evaluation process, and the data used for validation – improving audit readiness and expediting the audit experience.
  • Lifecycle management of tests: Teams can collaborate on tests before they are published, ensuring they align with security and compliance requirements and organizational standards.

“A key reason why ChurnZero chose Drata over other players in the space is because of the platform’s deep integrations with AWS, and Adaptive Automation amplifies that value for us even further. With enhanced configurability and evidence validation, the new capabilities from Drata will not only elevate our compliance program but also set a new standard in automation excellence,” said Michael Kipp, Director, Technology Operations at ChurnZero.

“When Drata launched three years ago, we accelerated compliance automation past traditional players in the market and did away with the one-size-fits-all approaches to compliance,” said Adam Markowitz, Drata CEO. “We’re transforming GRC yet again with Adaptive Automation, so our customers can continue building compliance programs rooted in automation without sacrificing configurability, and maintain stakeholder trust.”
