Vendor Identity Management

Vendor access requires grappling with Identity and Authentication. Those users work for a multitude of different companies: not yours.

A common approach is to create shadow users locally, either per person, or per company. Agilicus AnyX provides a better way.

Agilicus AnyX allows unifying these identities. The end user sees single-sign-on with their company identity provider. The Agilicus AnyX administrator sees a seamless single identity pool to configure authorisation on.

Access Request Workflow

Agilicus streamlines the management of user access with its sophisticated onboarding and offboarding workflows, embedding security and efficiency into the heart of its operations. Through an automated process, new users are quickly brought into the system with initial access rights tailored to their specific roles, minimizing the information required at the start to reduce friction and enhance the onboarding experience. This initial access comes with predefined expiration dates, ensuring that access rights are regularly reviewed and renewed only when necessary. Notifications alert users and administrators about upcoming expirations, prompting action to renew or adjust access as required. The system’s inherent flexibility allows for access requests to be meticulously reviewed, approved, or denied, ensuring that every user has exactly the access they need, no more and no less.

On the flip side, Agilicus’ automated offboarding process ensures that access rights are promptly revoked when no longer needed or when a user’s association with the organisation ends. This automatic revocation is complemented by notifications and a streamlined process for extending access if the situation demands it, maintaining the principle of least privilege while accommodating the dynamic needs of the organisation. The entire lifecycle of user access, from initial provisioning to final revocation, is logged and audited, providing a transparent, compliant, and secure framework for managing external identities.

By integrating these automated workflows, Agilicus not only safeguards the organisation’s resources against unauthorised access but also significantly reduces the administrative burden associated with manually managing user lifecycles. This ensures a seamless, secure, and efficient experience for both users and administrators, underlining Agilicus’ commitment to enhancing cybersecurity posture while streamlining operational processes.

Ensuring Vendor Trust with Identity Verification

Agilicus not only simplifies but also secures the process of onboarding external vendors through its integration with third-party identity verification services. This capability ensures that before vendors are granted access, their identities are thoroughly validated, enhancing the security and integrity of the business environment. By automating identity proofing, Agilicus provides a seamless, secure bridge between external identities and internal resources, building trust and compliance without additional administrative overhead. This streamlined verification process is crucial for maintaining high security and operational standards, ensuring that only verified vendors can access sensitive systems and data.
