Enable third-party vendor accounts only when needed and monitor when in use


Organizations shall never allow 24/7 access to their systems by third party vendors for support and maintenance purposes, because this increases the chances of attack. You should only enable vendor accounts when needed and disable as soon as they are done working to prevent any misuse. When vendor accounts are used, their activity must be monitored.

This Action1 query can help to assess your endpoints for vendor account usage. You have to provide a list of vendor account names in order to check their usage and then verify the usage timeframes.

Sign-up for Action1 Free Edition to install/uninstall software and patches, receive real-time alerts and view instant data from your endpoints, or run live or scheduled queries with the ability to export to CSV or Excel. Action1 Endpoint Security Platform is entirely SaaS, with online web interface (no management tools to install) and it has zero cost for basic functionality. Running in the Cloud, Action1 discovers all of your endpoints in seconds and you can query your entire network in plain English.
