“I have third-party vendors in my network, but I don’t really know what they are doing.” Does this sound familiar?
On average, IT professionals report that 182 third-party vendors* access their internal network on a weekly basis. These third-parties range from POS vendors to software manufacturers to IT outsourcers. They often have Active Directory credentials, and most likely, a VPN – enabling them to log in to your network at any time, and stay connected as long as they like.
There are many challenges and risks involved in managing privileged accounts for third-party vendors. Organizations have the complicated task of ensuring their systems are secure while, at the same time, making them easy to use.
So, how much access is too much? And how do you give legitimate users the access they need to be productive, while keeping attackers out?
