Learn how proper Vendor Access Management reduces cyber risk in a manufacturing setting. You’ll learn why Vendor Access Management is one of the most effective tools organizations have for reducing their attack surface while enabling secure, auditable access for authorized non-employees.

Manufacturing organizations enlist the help of third party vendors and experts to perform troubleshooting and maintenance on critical systems to ensure constant uptime. Unfortunately, these vendors also introduce cyber risk. Reserve your spot and join us to learn how your organization can effectively approach vendor access management and reduce risk without it being a resource intensive project.

What You’ll Learn


Inherited Cyber Risk from Vendors and Third Parties

Your employees and vendors need access to resources on the manufacturing floor, but they are also the source of inherited cyber risk. When a vendor falls victim to a cyber breach, their clients become targets as well. VPNs and other legacy solutions like Teamviewer are unable to properly restrict malware or malicious users from accessing protected resources on an organization’s network.

By enabling secure, auditable access for vendors, contractors, and third parties,organizations can harden defences and contain the blast radius of cyber attacks while ensuring the right person has the right level of access, when they need it.

Reducing Your Cyber Risk and Improving Efficiency

Ensuring constant uptime of systems (SCADA, HMI, PLCs) on the manufacturing floor is critical. More often than not, this means allowing vendors to remotely access systems for troubleshooting and maintenance purposes. Problems arise when vendors are sharing credentials for a VPN or jumpbox – losing visibility on which user is taking which action and failing to properly limit the scope of their access. 

We will demonstrate how Agilicus seamlessly allows access on a per-user basis, ensuring they are directly connecting to only the systems they need in order to perform their job. Further security measures like multi-factor authentication can be simply placed on top, strengthening each access attempt by a user.
