Accelerating Third Party Onboarding And Putting the Aspirin Back in the Medicine Chest
Operations staffing can cause some of the worst headaches. Connecting a network of branch locations and offices securely is tricky without having to deal with third party contractors, temporary workers, and vendors. Managing access as contractors come and go is a cost that seems too high and a process that takes too long. The process is prone to waste: procure a token (shipping, activation), enabling a laptop VPN connector (IT setup, support, debugging) recapture the token on departure (shipping deactivation), and make sure it all works with your identity access management (IAM) system.
Switching to a lightweight tokenless authentication system sounds like a good solution on paper, but what about all those new headaches? Major IAM providers can take 9 months to make such a switch. What about going to a vendor? Some don’t have token and tokenless systems that play well together. Can the vendor scale to my enterprise? Can the vendor integrate to my platform?
Step away from the medicine cabinet. Let’s prioritize.
The first question that has to be answered is how well does this security provider mesh with your multimillion dollar IAM platform. Equifax sees the partnership between IAM system and remote access securer as the biggest asset an authentication partner can have in solving customer business needs. If they mesh with the major vendors, they have a track record of success which means they can scale. Now all you need is a nimble provider who can make it happen.
