Taking the Risk Out of Third-Party, Non-Employee Users

CISOs and CIOs have a tough job. With technology solutions embedded in nearly all business processes and third-party users, non-employee outsiders who are given insider access to systems, data, and facilities, sometimes outnumbering full-time employees, securing the enterprise has never been a more daunting task.

Inadequately managing the lifecycle and risk of third-party identities can expose the organization to significant and potentially highly consequential risks like in the following scenarios:

  • A “do not rehire” former employee is provided access as an unrecognized third-party user
  • Third-party user access is over-provisioned due to onboarding pressures
  • Identities for third parties are not audited or revalidated
  • Third-party user relationships are terminated but their access is not
  • A third-party partner or supplier is hacked, but their employees retain access
  • Third-party users stored in HRIS create misclassification of employee liability
  • Unmeasured third-party risk creates compliance violations

SecZetta Can Help

SecZetta’s Third-Party Identity Risk solution is a ‘no code” solution that was purpose-built to enable organizations to execute risk-based identity access and lifecycle strategies for vendors, partners, contractors, freelancers, bots, service accounts, and other non-employee populations.

Most importantly, SecZetta enables the CISO and their team to facilitate the utilization of third-party, non-employees by improving the operational efficiencies around key IAM business processes like onboarding, auditing, and offboarding, while at the same time supporting regulatory compliance, and ultimately reducing third-party risk.

With SecZetta, organizations will be able to make well-informed, risk-based decisions about provisioning, verifying, and deprovisioning access which customizations to HRIS, and IAM solutions can’t provide.
