Scenario
A company had sold you a service to monitor your networks. For this to happen, they need to install a device inside of network that sends data back to the third parties office.
Would this be secure? If not why and what security measures would you put in place?
(This for a university project so any help would appreciated)

Hello, it depends on what device they install within your network, and if the device does exactly what they say, and no more.

If you're paying a highly rated company to do this, and other customers approve, then you should be ok. If you're giving access to your network to a random third party for free... less so.

It depends. It would be difficult to guarantee that something 100% safe.
