Integrate with Vanta

Vanta simplifies the complex, time-consuming, and tedious process of preparing for a SOC 2 audit. With Vanta, you can connect your tools and infrastructure, and start receiving automated security and compliance immediately.

Gusto integrates with Vanta to push user information from Gusto to Vanta–this helps auditors determine if your company is practicing the required onboarding and offboarding compliance requirements.

Connect to Gusto from Vanta

To set up the integration you must be a Gusto admin with the necessary permissions to access the entire employee directory.

  1. Sign in to your Vanta account.
  2. Click your profile icon at the top right of the page.
  3. Click Company Settings.
  4. Click Connections.
  5. Scroll down to the “Human Resources/Payroll” section.
  6. Click Gusto.
  7. Click Connect Gusto.
  8. If you’re not already signed in to Gusto, enter your Gusto sign-in credentials and click Sign In.
  9. Click Authorize.
    • You’ll be taken back to the integration in Vanta.

Vanta finds the users in your HR system (Gusto) that have no associated identity provider or manual Vanta user created for them. If all of your users have a connected identity provider, no further action is required.

To review the users without an identity provider, click View. For each, click the three-dot menu to either create a Vanta user manually or link to an existing Vanta user.

How the sync works

Once connected, the information will sync immediately from Gusto to Vanta–it will also automatically sync every hour thereafter. 

From your Vanta People Dashboard, you should now see information such as the start date, end date, and job title attached to your employees and/or contractors. If an employee doesn't show up in the People section of Vanta, make sure they have a hire date specified in Gusto. 

The integration will sync the following information for employees and contractors:
