Problem

Current methods of providing third party remote access expose your network to the vulnerability of attacks and breaches

Solution

Secure your network against third party data breaches and attacks by securing common vulnerability points with SecureLink

Common Points of Vulnerability With Current Access Methods:

Shared, generic accounts

Often third parties are given a generic account that is shared among technicians to access customer systems and provide support. You can never be certain of who the individual is on the other side of the connection, and identifying malicious activity and tying it back to an individual becomes near impossible to do.

Uncontrolled and unsegregated access

VPNs, the most common remote access method, often fall short of providing the granular control needed to isolate a vendor’s access and activity to strictly what is necessary. There is nothing in place to stop someone from accessing data or systems that they shouldn’t.

No logs or tracking of activity

Organizations often lack the visibility into exactly what their third parties are doing when they are working or providing support. This inability to see and review what’s happening in the network creates a risk that nefarious activity goes on undetected longer than it should.

Shared privileged credentials

According to Verizon’s Data Breach Report, 80% of all hacking-related breaches are tied back to privileged credentials. Third parties are all too often at the source of those compromised credentials, so sharing those outside of your organization creates more vulnerability and greater exposure to attacks.

A Solution That Addresses the Common Points of Vulnerability of Other Access Methods:

Individual Identification SecureLink individually identifies each technician who is accessing your system with unique logins and multi-factor authentication, as well as verifies the rep’s current employment status. With no shared, generic accounts, you always know exactly who is in your network.
Controlled Network Access Vendor access is tightly controlled, so that they can only access exactly what they need, and nothing else. Assign granular permissions by vendor or technician, and isolate access down to the host and port level.
Detailed Audit of All Activity All vendor activity is captured in an audit trail, with information on which individual had access, when, who approved their access and the reason for connection. On top of that, SecureLink captures full HD video audit and keystroke logs of sessions so you have complete visibility into network activity.
No Shared Network Credentials Eliminate the risk of a data breach via shared privileged credentials that become compromised. Instead, credentials are stored in the credential vault (or your PAM’s password vault), and automatically passed through and injected into the session, providing the vendor with access they need, without their knowledge of usernames and passwords.
