External vendors, outsourcers, and contractors play a vital and growing role in organizations, but when given access to your network and systems, they can be difficult to monitor and manage. Third-party vendors have been identified as the source of many significant cyber breaches and are a major target for attackers, introducing additional risks and vulnerabilities into your environment.
Practically every organization needs to give third-party vendors privileged access to their network for some aspect of IT or operational tasks. For many, vendors are critical elements of their business operations. It can be challenging to keep track of all vendors and monitor what they are doing on your network, and vendors often feel frustration at the process for getting and maintaining access. Using legacy tools like a VPN gives your vendors more access than they need, opening your organization to vulnerabilities and increasing the attack surface.
Provide third-party vendors with secure, reliable connections to access your network externally
Grant “least privilege” levels of access to limit the possibility of pivoting into unapproved areas of the network
Manage vendor access approvals from anywhere via your Android or iOS device
Automatically rotate or reset vendor accounts based on your specifications
Grant vendors temporary elevated access, or limited to certain timeframes
Log all session activity for a complete audit trail, with real time reporting
More Control and Insight
Give vendors just the access they need, and know what they are doing when they are in your network.
Reduced Risk of Cyber Attacks
Control vendor access to reduce the attack surface and prevent hackers from utilizing “all or nothing” VPN access to breach your network.
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.
Vendors often use multiple remote access tools because legacy tools can't meet all of their clients' needs, which can vary widely. Some require more advanced tiers of service while others have simpler or less frequent needs, impacting the way vendors need to interact with their various customers and systems.
