Third-party vendors, partners, and contractors provide businesses with a huge productivity boost that could not be achieved any other way. However, allowing external users to access sensitive internal systems creates serious risk. Even well-intentioned third-party users are not invested in an organization and its security the same way that employees are. Similarly, vendors' own security hygiene – over which the hiring organization has little to no control – may not meet the corporate standard and can easily lead to disastrous outcomes.

Enforcing zero-trust access for third-party users is the best way to get all the productivity and cost-saving benefits of these relationships without incurring added risk. This Buyer's Guide will help you understand how to select a vendor and solution that will allow your organization to fully achieve its zero-trust goals.
