Drata, a continuous security and compliance automation platform, today announced it has been selected by KnowBe4 as the company’s exclusive GRC partner. KnowBe4 is transitioning its KnowBe4 Compliance Manager (KCM) offering to a support-only model and endorses Drata as the preferred offering for migration.
KnowBe4 is a leading provider of security awareness training and simulated phishing to help more than 60,000 organizations across the globe manage the ongoing problem of social engineering. KnowBe4 and Drata have an existing integration along with 300 joint customers, enabling customers to save hundreds of hours every year by automatically collecting evidence of personnel's security awareness training. As the company ends support for KCM, built with compliance, risk, policy, and vendor risk management modules, it has recommended its customers to migrate from KCM to Drata to continuously maintain and grow their GRC programs. KnowBe4 chose Drata after an exhaustive assessment of vendors in the market, based on the company’s expansive product offerings and steadfast customer-centric values.
“Following a strategic review of KnowBe4’s long-term product roadmap, we decided to move KCM GRC to a support-only model,” said Stu Sjouwerman, CEO of KnowBe4. “We then completed a thorough review of alternate options to best meet the needs of our KCM customers. Drata was top of mind as an option because they provide a best-in-class compliance offering through their automation platform, an outstanding customer experience and integrate with other KnowBe4 products. For these reasons, we ultimately decided to choose their offering for our customers.”
“Being selected as KnowBe4’s exclusive GRC partner reaffirms Drata’s leadership in the market and our unmatched commitment to delivering exceptional customer experience,” said Adam Markowitz, Drata Co-Founder and CEO. “Whether it’s a company that is brand new to compliance or migrating from other platforms, our risk and compliance automation offerings can be easily configured to fit all business needs.”
