If I considered the vendor trustworthy, and had a legitimate reason, I would do so under the conditions that (1) any vendor rep given access would be required to use it on the premises, (2) any vendor rep given access would be required to check all communications gear at the door, and use SST under constant supervision, and (3) the SST profile would be disabled immediately, and the password changed, before the vendor rep is permitted to claim that communications gear, leave the premises, or go anywhere without an escort.

If I did not consider the vendor trustworthy, the mere act of requesting SST access would be considered grounds to permanently blacklist the vendor.
