As a production company we have may external suppliers who deliver machines or software to support our product processes.
Many of these suppliers will always try to bring their own router to be able to support the machine or software.
Often these machines or software also need to exchange data with internal machines or software.
I need your opnion here. How do you handle situations like this? What kind of policy you have here. And what is the best solution in these situations? Place them behind a separate mx for each supplier?
Solved! Go to Solution.
I wouldn't allow third-party network equipment to be connected to your internal network.
I often put them on their own VLAN, for a VLAN separate from the internal network, and provide them with VPN access to their devices.
Then you have the same thought as me. But it is something that has been accepted for years, but in my opnion cant be any more.
