It’s time to fully solve your third-party remote access security

Organizations of all sizes, industries, and trades rely on third-party vendors to maximize productivity and performance. It seems like an easy win for businesses – if you can’t do something in-house, outsource it to professionals who do it best. When a third party is engaged, an organization will enter the third-party lifecycle – the process all companies take to assess, onboard, connect, monitor, and manage a third-party vendor. The process starts with sourcing potential vendors and making a final selection, then moves onto the intake stage and onboarding process. Once the third-party vendor is on-board, the organization will provide that vendor with the access it needs to do their job. Once access is granted, that access needs to be continually monitored to ensure appropriate network behavior, plus additional reporting for compliance purposes. Then, towards the end of the lifecycle, the organization must decide if they will renew the contract or terminate the third-party relationship.




While each of the “stages” in the third party lifecycle carry some level of external threat, the greatest point of risk is the point of connectivity: when external third parties gain access to an organization’s network, systems and information. As the riskiest point, it’s critical that organizations fully secure this stage in the third-party lifecycle.


However, securing the connectivity and access points for third parties is easier said than done; after all, 44% of organizations experienced a data breach caused by a third party in the past year alone. So why are organizations struggling to effectively and securely manage this access? Because many organizations are using remote access solutions that are designed for internal employee access – not designed for third-party usage, which poses its own set of unique challenges.


This is where SecureLink comes in. SecureLink’s solution for third-party remote access is designed specifically to address these unique challenges. It solves and secures the greatest point of risk in the third-party lifecycle – the point of connectivity – with a secure remote access solution that manages third-party identities, implements zero trust network access, provides visibility into all activity, and helps assure compliance with your industry’s regulations.

Secure Remote Access Solution

Third Party Identity Management

Zero Trust Network Access

SecureLink solves the problems that arise with creating and managing third-party identities and remote access. Every third-party rep has their own unique account, layered with multi-factor authentication to verify their identity and eliminate the issue of credential sharing. SecureLink’s authentication process also verifies the current employment status of each individual to ensure they have a valid need to access the system. Each account has time-based provisioning, ensuring that accounts don’t remain active for longer than they should.

SecureLink also makes managing third-party identities streamlined, efficient, and easy to manage. On average, customers see an 80% reduction in time spent managing third-party accounts and a 90% reduction in time spent troubleshooting account issues. It allows organizations to manage third-party identities without having to sacrifice security or efficiency.
SecureLink provides third-party vendors with access based on the principle of Zero Trust, solving the challenge of effectively controlling the amount of access a third party has. Third parties are provided with least privileged access via granular permissions and access defined down to the host and port level - meaning vendors only have access to what they need, when they need it. Credential sharing is once again eliminated with credential vaulting and injection, so organizations have no reason to share logins with third party reps. And all these features are available without impeding the access that your vendors need; SecureLink supports all the connectivity requirements of your third parties, including RDP, SSH, Telnet, VNC, as well as any TCP or UDP protocol, and any native tools that vendors use.

Visibility via Audit

Compliance Assurance

The SecureLink remote access solution provides organizations with complete visibility into their third parties’ activity on their network. Every network session is captured in a comprehensive and detailed audit log that ties network activity back to an individual rep and includes detailed views through video recordings and keystroke logging. Should a security incident happen, organizations can easily identify the source of the problem and more quickly resolve the issue; in fact, SecureLink customers spend (on average) 70% less time on incident investigation with the platform’s visibility features.

Beyond the time savings, organizations can have total peace of mind knowing that their vendors are being held accountable for their actions and that they can verify and confirm that their vendors are doing what they should be doing and not accessing what they shouldn’t. As one of our customers put it, “It’s a question of what is your peace of mind worth to you?”
Lastly, SecureLink’s remote access platform ensures that organizations can meet, and even exceed, their regulatory compliance requirements. Just as importantly, organizations can easily and confidently prove compliance with a single source of documentation for all third-party access. Imagine feeling confident that you’ll pass an audit around your third-party access program and spending 70% less time on preparing documentation and reports in advance. SecureLink makes that a reality. Confidently know exactly what third parties have access to your network, what they have done, and that the right (and required) controls are in place to manage your third parties.
SecureLink helps meet regulatory compliance requirements across industries, including but not limited to the following security policies:
  • HIPAA compliance
  • PCI compliance
  • NIST compliance
  • CJIS compliance
