PARIS, April 4, 2023 /PRNewswire/ --
WALLIX, (Euronext: ALLIX) a European cybersecurity software publisher expert in access and identity solutions, launches SaaS Remote Access, the SaaS version of remote access management technology integrated into WALLIX PAM4ALL, its unified privilege management solution . SaaS Remote Access is designed for organizations - from all sectors and in particular industry - that want to provide digital access to their IT infrastructure to external providers through simplified management, while benefiting from the highest level of cybersecurity offered by a leader. PAM recognized by Gartner.
To carry out their activity, organizations turn to external service providers who need to connect to their IT infrastructure (whether traditional or industrial). These can be remote maintainers, supply chain vendors, service providers, external consultants, etc.
The problem for organizations is that these external actors are numerous and can constantly change. In addition, the frequency and duration of their intervention vary depending on the needs of the company and its demands. Therefore, visualizing, managing and securing their access becomes a real headache for IT teams. Indeed, it is vital for organizations to know who has access to what, from where and why, as well as to manage access permissions. This is the only way to detect and stop any attempt at usurpation by a hacker, internal malice or negligence, and thus protect the data. And it is that the cost of a cyberattack increases an average of 370,000 dollars if there is a third party involved. In addition, by implementing traceability through a security and digital access management solution, organizations also guarantee compliance with current regulations on cybersecurity.
Traditionally, in an attempt to manage external stakeholder access, the IT team implements VPN technology, a secure "tunnel" between the external stakeholder's device and the organization's IT infrastructure. Except, actually, VPN vulnerabilities make regular headlines. On the other hand, VPN implementation is a cumbersome and expensive process: each interested party must be referenced in Active Directory, the Microsoft software used by almost all organizations, which allows managing permissions and controlling access to computing resources ( data, servers, applications, software, etc.). And this technology also does not meet regulatory requirements.
The Answer: SaaS Remote Access
To streamline access management for third-party service providers, IT teams must turn to innovative solutions like SaaS Remote Access.
WALLIX PAM4ALL is a unified privilege management solution. It combines all WALLIX technologies: multi-factor authentication (MFA), remote access management, session management, password management and least privilege management. The solution secures all access to the IT infrastructure, guaranteeing data protection, detection and resistance to cyberattacks and business continuity. It also ensures compliance with cybersecurity regulations.
SaaS Remote Access is WALLIX PAM4ALL's "remote access management" technology now available as a service. It has been specially developed for managing access from external providers.
This SaaS version of WALLIX remote access management technology is also available in WALLIX PAM4OT, a packaged offer based on WALLIX PAM4ALL, dedicated to industrial companies and those with industrial equipment (such as hospitals with scanners, etc.).
The advantages of subscribing to this functionality in SaaS (Software-as-a-Service) mode are:
• Ease of deployment and use
Thanks to the SaaS mode, there is no need to install a new solution that replaces VPNs; an Internet connection is all that is needed to access SaaS Remote Access. This allows for better accessibility, flexibility and cost reduction. In addition, thanks to its easy-to-use interface, it is quick and easy for companies to register their external service providers and configure their access rights to authorized resources. This frees the IT team from these actions and allows them to focus on more value-added tasks.
• Comprehensive security
Digital identities and passwords of external stakeholders are no longer integrated into the organization's Active Directory, but are managed and protected in SaaS Remote Access. This drastically reduces cyber risk, since the more digital identities there are in Active Directory, the greater the chance that a hacker will steal them and then access all the resources of the person whose identity has been stolen. This also allows the organization to have IT hygiene that follows cybersecurity and traceability standards, enabling cybersecurity by design.
• Full visibility of external remote access
With SaaS Remote Access, organizations take back control of external remote access. Companies create accesses for their external providers in real time during a defined period and they are automatically deleted once the task is finished. External providers connect to the organization's IT infrastructure through the SaaS Remote Access web portal and their every action is monitored, providing full visibility and transparency.
"With this remote access management for providers, we simultaneously respond to the security challenges of IT teams and promote the digital transformation of companies. In addition, we empower business teams and place the digital experience at the center of At the heart of our solution: speedy access creation, seamless vendor interactions, and operational efficiencies for all IT and business teams Engaging with vendors and maintaining a line of defense for digital access is extremely easy and cost-effective with our solution. Launching this service to secure external access to IT and industrial infrastructures is only the first phase of WALLIX's SaaS strategy," explained Edwige Brossard, WALLIX Product and Marketing Director.
