Creating secure log in areas

Specs: N/A
Hello, im a relative newbie and not a network technician and wonder if anyone can help with this.

I have all my organisations websites/intranet running on our server and I carry out maintenance through my usual Network Operator log in with it's permissions. my organisiation wishtes to procure a standalone specialsit app tha ti t wishes to host ont he same server.

Part of the contract is for the company which is producing the specialist standalone app to install it on our server (as it requires specialsit knowledge).

Basically I'm looking to give them access to install the application on server/create domain but for them not have any access to anything else on our server (websites/intranet etc). Is it possible to create a log in for the company to the server whereupon they will not be able to see anything else on server and install their app?

any advice appreciated, thanks

Yes, by creating a User Account that has limited access to things like the registry and active directory. The problem is they may need full rights to these things because they may use Active Directory for authentication and may need to install Users and other OUs into your Active Directory for their app. I would do a System State or Drive image backup before they start and have them sign a non-disclosure agreement and watch them like a hawk.

hello thanks for replying.

The server that this work needs to be carried out on is our web server only and not our network server. The web server essentially hosts our suite of websites/intranets via Sharepoint.

But obviously I do not wish this company to have access to the back end of our websites as there is all sorts of sensitive info or issues that could arise and would wish to lock them off in a secure zone so that they could just install this standalone application that will be public facing on a given domnain name.

regards
