External vendors, outsourcers, and contractors play a vital and growing role in modern architectures. Recent years have pointed to third-party access as the point of origin in many of the most significant breaches in modern history. Third-party access protocols are frequently targeted by attackers as a result of these past successes. Choosing the correct vendor privileged access management (VPAM) is paramount to combatting these threats.

Privileged Remote Access enables the third-party experts that keep your network running smoothly, all while shrinking your attack surface.

Enable third-party remote access with secure, reliable connections to your network externally
Grant “least privilege” levels of remote access to limit the possibility of pivoting into unapproved areas of the network
Manage vendor remote access approvals from anywhere. any device
Automatically rotate or reset vendor accounts based on your specifications
Grant vendors temporary elevated access, or access limited to certain timeframes
Log all session activity for a complete audit trail with real time reporting

Third-party vendors may require privileged access to your network for many business-critical IT or operational tasks. The task of tracking and monitoring vendor remote access and third-party remote access can be daunting, and can create headaches for both your internal teams and your vendors themselves. Legacy tools like a VPNs may grant your vendors more access than they really need, exposing critical vulnerabilities and substantially increasing your organization's attack surface.

Privileged Remote Access works differently, extending privileged access security best practices to all remote access sessions – internal and external.

  • Elevated Control & Insight

Enable the exact remote vendor access needed and monitor what third-parties are doing on your network.

  • Reduce Risk of Cyber Attacks

Control vendor access to reduce your attack surface and prevent hackers from utilizing “all or nothing” VPN access to breach your network.

  • Increase Access Productivity

Assign vendor profiles and permissions to give vendors the power they need to be productive without relying on lengthy processes.

Today’s outsourcers and managed service providers (MSPs) are expected to provide high-quality services, strong security, and real-time support across a complex landscape of infrastructure, devices, and applications. Concerns over data breaches as the result of a third-party’s lax security is increasing. If a service provider or vendor introduces a security vulnerability to even one client, it can spell disaster for their business.

BeyondTrust delivers vendor privileged access management (VPAM) built to equip vendors, outsourcers, and MSPs with all the access tools they need. This includes:

Access your customers’ servers, desktops, POS systems, and mobile devices running Linux, Microsoft, Mac, iOS, Android
Audit and review all the data directly since you own the deployment
Quickly connect each and every time to clients’ systems located around the world, no matter the connection speed
Seamlessly connect to client endpoints directly or through a ticketing or change management request
Solve problems faster with screen sharing, integrated chat, annotations, and remote camera sharing
Streamline processes by integrating vendor remote access with existing service desk and CRM solutions

Vendors may use multiple remote access tools at once because legacy tools can't meet all of their client needs. Client requirements may require advanced tiers of service, while others have simpler or less frequent needs that impact the way vendors need to interact with their various customers and systems. Your third-party access management should be able to cater to them all, delivering uncompromising security across all connections.

  • Increase Remote Access Productivity

Consolidate remote access methods for all of your clients so jobs get done quickly without relying on lengthy processes or multiple tools.

  • Strengthen Access Security

BeyondTrust uses outbound connections from both the technician and the endpoint. This allows you to set granular access controls, monitor activity, and log data for each client and session.

  • Improve Service Flexibility

Cater to your exact access needs without compromising security levels. Simplify access for users and customers alike.
