Prerequisites and knowledge base

Prerequisites

To better understand what this article describes, we advise you to read the ACSIA CRA User Manual before diving into this one which will cover specific topics around third-party management.

 

Knowledge base

Third parties are Companies that, somehow, interact with you and your company, but are different from your company, such as providers or partners. For this reason, ACSIA CRA provides data that are not completely visible.

Anyway, adding a third party will give you an idea how the exposure that a company has on the Internet. So, for example, if the third party you are adding is a company that belongs to your supply chain, you could decide to ask them to improve their exposure to the Internet so that even your company is safe, if the resulting score is low.


How to add a Third Party

To add a Third Party, go to the "Third Party" section, click on "Add a third party", then select the Company to which you want to "connect" the third parties:

You can also see that ACSIA CRA shows you how many third parties you can add, depending on your subscription.

 

Click on "Next" and choose the linked Companies (select your Company, and other ones, eventually):

A Third Party must always be linked to one or more Companies

Click on "Next" to select the Third Parties to add to your Company. Select the country and write the name or the ID of the Company:

The system will check and find the company you want to add as a third party.

To complete the process, select the company found and paste its domain into the dedicated box. Click on "Create company" to complete the process:

Anyway, as we introduced before, ACSIA CRA provides data that are not completely visible for a Third Party. For example, in the following plot:

We can perform the following actions on a Third Party:

  • Archive third party. By clicking on it, the Third Party will be archived and it won't be taken into account in the next rechecks. Anyway,  archived third parties will be calculated in the maximum number of third parties that you can add, depending on your subscription.
  • Generate synthetic report. By clicking on it, ACSIA CRA will generate a report of the Third Party with limited information about it.
