IT teams want to get tools into vendors and employee’s hands quickly, but onboarding new third parties, vendors, or suppliers can be a time-consuming and repetitive process – one that’s ripe for automation. However, one of the most important parts of managing third-party risk is having good onboarding processes when giving these entities access. With Vendor Onboarding, users can securely eliminate manual overhead of managing vendor teams and users by delegating portions of the vendor user administration to trusted sub-admins/vendor admins. Helping eliminate shared accounts while providing an easier path to adding new vendor users as they onboard vs. the existing methodology and manual efforts.
Administrators can delegate the management of vendor and internal users to a trusted vendor administrator, or another internal user. Administrators can create a new Group Policy type in order to better onboard and manage vendor or other users. Once the PRA Admin defines the policy settings for the new Group Policy and assigns a Vendor Admin to that policy, the Vendor Admin can manage the onboarding and offboarding of managed users for the specified policy. Additionally, Notification and Approval workflows are available for the User onboarding process. This functionality is designed to decrease the manual administration requirements of Vendor management, as well as provide a quicker path to Access for new users.
