Contractors, business partners, and other service providers often have access to sensitive corporate data. However, they are not usually subject to the same security practices and policies as the hosting enterprise they work with. This commonly seen situation leads to security gaps that are not attended to in commonly used remote access solutions.
Enterprises are rarely able to control the security of their contractors and partners, and often lack the tools necessary to determine the full context for their behavior. This makes it impossible to adequately monitor the actions of third parties and detect when they’ve been compromised.
Fortscale’s advanced user behavior analytics includes the capability to detect third-party accounts and tag them as such. This enables stricter risk monitoring of their corporate resource usage and provides the ability to detect anomalies in their behavior that indicate compromised security.
