Ensure fortified privileged access to external vendors with ease
Protect all identities, regulate privileged access to vendors, and mitigate security risks by significantly reducing the attack surface.
Securely launch one-click connections to remote IT assets. Comprehensively audit all vendor activity and satisfy compliance.
Safely send passwords to third-parties outside your network. Set a time frame for access and reset passwords upon usage.
More than 50% of data breaches reported in 2022 involved third parties.
Organizations are dependent on a wide array of third-party resources ranging from IT service providers to contract workers to suppliers. Managing their access without a centralized system is a difficult task, and this leads to companies giving vendors complete access to internal IT resources.
Unmonitored and unrestricted privileged access to sensitive resources causes bleeding of critical passwords and other business information. Securing third party relationships without hindering them brings in the need for special management of vendor access in internally regulated networks.
As networks and systems grow in number and get more complex, there is the need to give secure access to vendors so they can work on things like ERP implementations, manufacturing systems troubleshooting, vendor specific software upgrades, contract worker access etc. This is where vendor access management comes into the picture. It defines a process to manage third-party access to computers in your organization. Privileged access management with vendor access capabilities allows you to give least-privilege access to external entities. This time-limited access is recalled once the vendor has completed their job. Securden PAM automates the process of providing access and helps completely control and audit all sensitive access.
Securden technical consultant will walk you through the important features demonstrating how you can safeguard your Windows accounts, control privileged access and enforce least privilege controls.
Allow third-parties swift access to resources they need while administering complete control.
Give vendors secure, time-limited access to privileged passwords, IT resources, applications, and servers on request. Administrators can configure authorized personnel to approve third-party access based on a reason.
Vendors who carry out RDP, SQL, and SSH sessions on remote machines/servers can be held accountable with fully recorded session trails of all privileged activity. This includes command-line activity.
With comprehensive audits and concise reports, Securden Unified PAM helps organizations ensure compliance across Sarbanes-Oxley, NIST, HIPAA, PCI/DSS, and CMMC standards.
Maintain authority over vendor sessions launched inside business networks. Shadow and monitor (Supervise) live connections, with the ability to terminate an ongoing connection immediately if suspicious activity is noted.
Safely share credentials in a masked form to third-parties via an email. This access can be time-restricted and fully audited. The password accessed can also be reset after being used by an external vendor identity.
Add third-party vendors as users in PAM and allow it to broker and manage access to resources. Assign specific MFA methods for your vendor identities to connect securely to IT assets via Securden.
VPAM is a sub-section of PAM that helps organizations manage and control privileged access by vendor identities such as mediators, contractors, and third-parties.
VPAM leverages enhanced password management to protect confidential login information for systems that third parties require access to.
PASM helps track activities that a vendor does while accessing internal systems.
Vendor privileged access management should be a component of a unified and full-fledged PAM solution. It is crucial that VPAM includes all the associated password and session management components without having to rely on individual modules or several solutions to solve one pressing issue.
