Ecosystem security is a methodology unique to the Acreto platform. It’s actually quite simple. Within your organization, there are many different departments, functions, and programs. Each of these areas contains specific applications, users, and devices that work together to execute organizational tasks. For example, your remote sales team may consist of and utilize Office 365, Salesforce, another internal pricing application, and of course, every sales team member. This is an Ecosystem. In a similar fashion, your Vendor Relations department may have 75 external suppliers that provide your organization with various goods and services. In order to be effective, each vendor must interact with your purchasing application(s). These vendors, your internal purchasing department, and every utilized purchasing application is an Ecosystem.
In addition to isolating Ecosystem members from the Internet, Acreto enables you to establish security policies at the Ecosystem level, allowing you to apply customized security policies for each Ecosystem. The right set of security policies for the sales team may very well differ from the needed security policies for the vendors.
