Third-Party Access Governance

Secure Your Extended Workforce With Intelligent Identity Governance

Managing Your Extended Workforce Doesn’t Have to be Complicated

Contractors, seasonal workers, freelancers, supply chain vendors, and other third-party workers make up a large percentage of today’s workforce. Managing these identities is a challenge for organizations of any size, and this complexity poses a large security risk. According to recent research, 98% of organizations do business with a third party that has been breached.

Third-Party Access Governance: FAQs

Third-party governance involves the processes and controls an organization uses to manage its relationships with external parties such as vendors, suppliers, and service providers.

It’s critical to ensure that these outsiders don’t introduce any security issues and vulnerabilities. For instance, when a freelancer is onboarded into the system, they are not given access to sensitive data that is not needed in their day-to-day work.

To do this, third-party governance and risk management solutions must be in place.

Effective third-party management/governance requires carefully assessing relationships and implementing appropriate controls to mitigate risks. This may include conducting due diligence on potential third-party partners, negotiating contracts, clearly defining responsibilities and performance expectations, and monitoring third-party partners closely.

Third-party identity management (TPIM) is a vital part of governance. This involves managing the lifecycle of third-party accounts, including onboarding, provisioning, access management, and offboarding. It also uses authorization and authentication technologies, like multi-factor authentication (MFA), to lessen the risk of hackers compromising the system through third-party accounts.

The chief reason for third-party remote access governance is risk management.

Allowing outsiders into your network is a significant risk for companies, as it increases the chances of unauthorized access to sensitive data or compromised systems.

The problem is that third parties are beyond your control. They can easily share their credentials (willingly or accidentally) with hackers, who can then gain entry into your system.

Third-party access governance can’t stop this from happening. However, it can prevent the hacker from doing more damage by limiting where they can move inside the network. You can also terminate the account, rendering it useless to the attacker.

Ensuring proper governance will protect your company from potential breaches and help you stay ahead of the competition. If you want to ensure your company’s network is safe, third-party access governance should be in place.

Third-party access governance can increase security, reduce the chances of data breaches and other cyberattacks, and deliver significant cost savings.

By preventing data breaches, organizations can avoid the vast amounts of money involved in data recovery, legal fees, and reputation damage.

Third-party access governance also helps companies comply with data privacy regulations, such as General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA).

Furthermore, third-party access governance sets clear expectations and mutual trust with your third-party partners, helping build stronger relationships.

Strengthening secure access is perhaps the key challenge with third-party access control. Companies have minimal control over how outsiders protect their login credentials—and no guarantee they can access your network from a secure workstation.

To shore up security, credentials must be regularly rotated and supported with other methods like MFA.

Monitoring third parties is critical but time-consuming work. Without it, you’re exposed to risks you may not be aware of; if you do detect something suspicious, you need a way to enforce immediate action.

Saviynt helps resolve these issues with robust risk assessment during onboarding, data protection, continuous monitoring, and seamless third-party access without a VPN.
