In a large company, hundreds or even thousands of vendor and third-party technicians may require periodic remote access to application servers, network devices, or users’ desktops. This constant flow of vendor remote access is necessary to keep your infrastructure functioning properly, but it can also be a threat to your organization’s security and undermine your efforts to maintain regulatory compliance.
According to the Trustwave 2013 Global Security Report, "63% of the 450 data breaches studied were linked to a third-party component of IT system administration." This is because most current products for third-party remote access don’t offer granular security settings, do not provide a comprehensive audit trail, and do not support all operating systems and devices typically required.
As a solution for third-party vendor access, Bomgar addresses the crucial security requirements of granular permissions and a complete audit trail within a consolidated solution that supports a wide array of operating systems and configurations. Bomgar acts as a centralized proxy for third-party activity throughout your enterprise, without the need to deploy hardware to every network segment.
Bomgar is the top remote support choice for support organizations large and small, including:
"The server team uses Bomgar’s Embassy feature to bring in vendors, so they don’t have to set up VPN access for each vendor rep. “This way they can only access the systems we define.”
“It became increasingly important to have a tool that was easy to use, efficient and obviously rock solid from a security perspective. Based on those criteria, there really weren’t too many products out there that had the whole package.”
