The extent of the use of third parties to carry out activities in companies today is really surprising. Companies are increasingly looking to outsource internal functions and operations and external services.
According to the study, a quarter of companies said they use more than 100 third-party vendors, mostly requiring access to internal assets, data and business applications to operate effectively and fulfill their contracts.
The study also found that 90% of respondents allow third parties to access not only internal resources, but critical internal resources as well. This should be an immediate cause for attention for any CISO.
For many organizations, securing access from third-party providers is incredibly complex – often requiring solutions like multi-factor authentication, VPN support, corporate laptops shipped to companies, directory services, agents, and more.
