Contractors Access

Freelancers, contractors and third-party entities are commonplace in today’s workforce. Managing their access to sensitive company data can be challenging however, and it opens you up to potential data breaches.

Stay In Control of Your Data

Keeping your business moving might require outsourcing work to third party contractors. However, without careful planning you put sensitive company data at risk. It’s easy to forget whom you’ve granted access to -- especially in large-scale projects -- and keeping track of a large number of contractors is time-consuming for even the most organized.

That can be a problem. Consider this statistic: just about half of respondents to a 2016 survey said they had experienced a breach as a result of a third-party vendor, 15 percent higher than those that had experienced a breach due to internal factors. This often has much to do with leaked credentials, or a lack of an easy way to track who has access to what.

ScaleFT provides a solution. Credentials are scoped to a user and their device, and access can be limited to devices you know are associated with that particular vendor. Credentials are short-lived and rendered useless after each request, which limits their usability in any attack. ScaleFT requires little supervision: your predetermined access policies work behind the scenes to automatically limit access to only what your vendor needs to see, and nothing more.
