With Progent's External Security Inventory Checkup, an engineer administers a comprehensive examination of your network from outside your company firewall to determine potential risks in the security profile you present to the public. With Progent's Internal Security Inventory Checkup, a certified security professional runs a system scan from a secure machine inside your firewall to evaluate your exposure to internal attacks. Both security inventory services are set up and executed from a secured remote site. The process is implemented by an engineer with high-level security accreditations who produces a report that details and analyzes the data captured by the security scan and proposes cost-effective remediation if call for.

Virtual Education for Workstation Programs
Progent offers online virtual learning for popular desktop programs and operating systems including Microsoft Office Excel, Word, PowerPoint, Visio, Adobe Acrobat, Photoshop CS, Crystal Reports, and Windows Vista and Windows 7.

Offered to single students or groups of any size, live online education allows the instructor to conduct the seminar from a remote facility and the clients can be spread across an office or all over the country.
