"How to Mitigate the Risks of Third-Party Access"

There is no such thing as an IT security perimeter. The need to support access to resources and collaboration from anywhere has poked so many holes in an organization’s perimeter that it can no longer be considered a line of defense. It’s not just the adoption of hybrid working that has made the perimeter porous, but also an increases reliance on third parties located outside the organization to keep the business going.

Organizations can often leverage the specialized skills and services of third parties to achieve their goals and objectives in a much more efficient and cost-effective way. Without having to incur the ongoing costs and burdens associated with building and maintaining certain capabilities in-house, organizations can use third parties to take advantage of the efficiencies, intellectual capital, and economies of scale they provide. To get these benefits, however, the organization typically must provide the third party ongoing access to critical resources, which comes with risk. When an external party is granted access to an organization’s environment to administer, maintain, and even manage their assets, it opens the door to potential exploits and misuse from that third party. 

The good news is minimizing risk and improving an organization’s cybersecurity posture is possible with next-generation strategies and technologies. Recent developments, such as agentless deployment options and session recordings, can allow organizations to create unshakeable boundaries that can protect resources and make zero-trust strategies come to life. This paper outlines the risks and challenges related to third-party access and how they can be overcome. It will demonstrate what it takes to deploy a zero-trust solution that can reduce risk while preserving the overall productivity and efficiency of the organization.
