Whoever is in control has the power. That’s why controlling who has access to your organization’s critical systems means you hold the power over cyber threats, bad actors, and ransomware.
When you lose control of user access, there’s no way to identify who is accessing your critical systems or data, what they are doing with that access, how long they have had access, and what kind of damage they could incur to your critical assets. Unfortunately, for many organizations, uncontrolled access, unsecured connectivity, and weak attack surfaces are the reality — but it doesn’t have to be that way.
When looking at who has access to your organization’s critical assets, like systems, networks, data, and infrastructure, it’s important to ask yourself, “Am I able to control the access of all the users accessing our most valuable assets?”
See how the SecureLink products seamlessly implement Access Control into your cybersecurity strategy.
SecureLink Enterprise Access is a remote access solution for third parties designed specifically to secure the greatest point of risk in working with third parties: the point of connectivity. The Enterprise Access solution provides a secure connection to third parties that verifies each user with MFA, deploys fine-grained access controls like access notifications and scheduling capabilities, and provides ZTNA with access defined down to the host and port level. This ensures that each user has minimal access and can’t move laterally throughout the network, lessening the chance of a third-party breach.
SecureLink Customer Connect contributes to access control by granting third-party vendors secure remote access into their customer’s networks. As a vendor, you can give your customers control by providing them with the fine-grained access controls they need to make sure your reps can only access what they need and nothing else. Customers can also set up their own access approval, schedule, and notification workflows. It’s one more way you can offer peace of mind to your clients and secure their network from any outside threats.
