Navigating Secure Onboarding Challenges

In today's dynamic market, organisations often need to grant temporary access rights to external individuals, whether it's a contractor requiring access to an internal application, a supplier needing access to specific data, or a consultant hired to enhance project delivery. However, securing access in a timely and secure manner presents challenges.

The process begins with verifying the identity of the person needing access, a task that typically involves an IT administrator who may not be part of the recruitment or contract-signing process. This raises the question: How can the IT admin ascertain whether a local manager is trustworthy to authorise access for external individuals?


PhenixID's Secure Onboarding: Streamlining Access to External Resources

PhenixID's solution for granting access to external resources is both secure and efficient. The external individual to be onboarded fills in their information, including accepting the IT policy, before undergoing authentication using OTPs sent to both the provided email and phone number. In the next step, the external person activates enrollment for secure authentication, such as PhenixID OneTouch.

The system then notifies the responsible person that someone has applied for access. The responsible person authenticates to access more information about the external person and can subsequently decide whether to grant onboarding. If applicable, they can also define a specific timeframe during which the external person can identify and gain access to internal systems.

This approach streamlines the entire process, with the onboarding individual securely authenticating using two different OTPs in the self-service portal to apply for access. The responsible person is promptly notified about the request and can make an informed decision on whether to onboard the external person or not.
