Third Party Risk Protection

Third Party Risk Protection

Assure That Those You Trust are Trustworthy

Those with access to your networks

Vendors, contractors, and other third parties with access to your networks are one of your greatest security risks. Threat actors, using techniques like spearphishing, acquire valid vendor credentials to access to your networks, and once inside broaden their foothold by moving laterally across VLANs. If access occurs via VPN, threat actors have direct access to your network infrastructure and can scan for open ports and unsecured device.

Those holding your data

How well are third parties who process your sensitive data protecting those data? If the servers housing those data are visible on the Internet, then those data are potentially vulnerable, even if they are encrypted.

The data you’re holding for others

Failing to protect the confidential information of others creates exposure for your organization. You may be liable if you fail to protect the sensitive data of others, resulting in financial damages to that party. Today’s practitioners must build scalable and isolated third party access capabilities that move beyond traditional remote access VPN technologies to address today’s risks.

Limiting Third Party Risk from Unauthorized Access

Relying on user names and passwords is ineffective in today’s sophisticated threat environment. And today’s security solutions, even when used in depth, aren’t capable of mitigating risks associated with third-party access.

SAIFE® has created a user-centric context-aware model that defines access by the user, their device, and where they are located that renders stolen credentials useless. Access is established to only those data or applications that they are entitled to access.

SAIFE ensures that all endpoints attempting to access a given infrastructure are authenticated and authorized prior to accessing any resources on the network; unauthorized network resource are inaccessible.

SAIFE effectively creates a dynamic, individualized perimeter for each user based on attributes such as identity, device profile, location, and authentication method.

What is Third Party Cyber Risk?

Third party risk is synonymous with vendor risk and supply chain risk. A “third party” is a business associate, contractor, subcontractor, vendor, service provider, business partner…an organization who has access to your sensitive data or your corporate network, or provides IT infrastructure to you.

Third party risk includes the access of PII or PHI by an unauthorized party; theft or loss of information in the possession of a third party; and failure to stop the transmission of malware or other malicious content.

Protecting Data Housed By or For Third Parties

SAIFE’s secure routing network hides servers housing third party data behind all-inbound-blocked firewalls. They remain invisible on the Internet, never addressed by any party, and only receiving already authenticated network traffic. Third party data isn’t vulnerable to anonymous attackers because would-be attackers don’t know it’s there.
