It’s time to take your partners off your network

and give segmented application access instead.

Read Solution Brief

Access is overextended
when it comes to partners

Many enterprises have fallen victim to security breaches due to third-party partners. Whether that be through stolen credentials or infected devices, the results are the same, costly security breaches that put the network at risk and precious data being viewed without restraint.

With most remote access solutions, third-party partners are granted full network access. These over privileged users introduce high-risk to the enterprise since ultimately you do not control your partners, or the devices used to connect to your network.

So how do you cultivate strong and productive partnerships while also protecting your network and private applications?

Embrace a modern approach to securing third-party access

Partners need application access, so why introduce them to the network?

With security threats becoming more advanced and dangerous, giving partners full and lateral access to your network is not sustainable. At the same time, it’s necessary to provide partners with access to a subset of private applications. What enterprises needs is a way to decouple application access from network access and segment access based on individual users and apps. The only way to achieve this is through software-defined perimeter (SDP) technology.

SDP is the modern approach to private application access technology. Whereas other remote access solutions are network-centric, SDP takes a fundamentally different approach and focuses on providing secure connectivity from user, whether an employee, third-party partner, or contractor, to only authorized enterprise applications, never the network. The result is micro-segmented access to applications, maintaining security of the network, while reducing the risk of attacks stemming from over-privileged third-party access.

Security

Before

Third-party partners and contractors were given lateral network access, exposing the enterprise to unnecessary risk.

After

Software-defined access only gives partners access to authorized private applications, not the network.

Simplicity

Before

Remote access solutions required a client be downloaded on either a managed or personal device.

After

With software-defined browser access, secure partner access is made seamless. Regardless of the device or location, a user can simply leverage a browser to gain access to authorized applications.

Visibility and Control

Before

With remote access solutions, visibility into partner activity was limited to IP address and port data.

After

SDP solutions deliver IT with comprehensive visibility into all partner activity down to the user, device and named app level.

Eliminating third-party risk is easy
with Software-defined access

Zscaler Private Access takes a user and application-centric approach to network security. Whether that user be an employee, contractor, or third-party partner, ZPA ensures that only authorized users have access to specific internal applications without ever giving access to the network. Rather than relying on physical or virtual appliances, ZPA uses lightweight infrastructure agnostic software, paired with browser access capabilities, to seamlessly connect all types of users to applications via inside-out connections stitched together within the Zscaler Security Cloud.

Zscaler Customer NOV

“Instead of trying to create a Citrix for users to connect to the environment and then go to the internal registration site to register their second factor tokens, we just expose this to ZPA through the ZPA client-less access and that works phenomenally.”

Casey Lee
Director of IT Security, National Oilwell Varco
