VRM Use Case
Manage and monitor vendors connected to your network in real-time

Continuous vendor risk management


Continuous Vendor Risk Management (VRM) solution

Vendor risk management is a full-time job. It is alarmingly difficult to maintain continuous digital trust while allowing vendors on the network. Every third-party granted network access is, in effect, a trusted partner.

With the PacketViper VRM solution, trusted partners’ network activity is enforceable. Out-of-policy activity is stopped if an unwanted, malicious actor gains access through third-party access. It’s that simple.

vendor risk scoring is not enough


Point-In-Time Assessments
and Vendor Risk Scores are Not Enough

The value of point-in-time data diminishes quickly and negates your ability to act most responsively.  Vendor Risk Scoring mechanisms are also necessary, but insufficient when it comes to actively monitoring vendors.

These scores only estimate the relative and comparative external security posture of your vendor, not how your vendors are continuously behaving on your network.

Continuous Monitoring with Automated Policy Enforcement

PacketViper uses lightweight deception and patented features to continuously analyze vendor traffic as it interacts with your network in real-time.

Because of this, when recon scans and IP traffic activity occurring outside of pre-approved operating ranges hit decoys, they can be easily identified, acted upon, and reported.

Regulatory guidance monitoring

PacketViper is a practical and cost-effective means to meet government and industry regulations like HIPAA, PCI DSS, and SOX which require third-party risk management (TPRM). Continuously diagnose and monitor interactions between your company and third-party networks in real-time.

Automate against anomalies

Develop rules for each vendor individually through custom outcomes designed to address assigned or perceived vendor risk. IP traffic activity occurring outside of normal, pre-approved operating ranges represent anomalies that can be automatically reported on and acted upon.

Integrate with business continuity

Create continuous, efficient, and effective Vendor Risk Management (VRM) compliance management with PacketViper. Easily establish a reliable digital trust policy for your Business Continuity plan. Further plan development will evolve based on the severity of violations recorded, and the priority of the vendor.
