Cybersecurity for At-Home Workers
Telecommuters often run their own computing devices and work in a physically unsecured area. This worsens their vulnerability to cyber attacks and requires careful deployment of firewalls, remote security monitoring, and the creation of security policies that follow leading practices. Progent's veteran team of certified cybersecurity experts can help your organization to design, implement and administer a compliant security environment that guards sensitive data in networks that include an at-home workforce.

  • Firewalls enable you to build a network environment that can be securely utilized by local users and by an at-home workforce, mobile users, vendors, clients, and other stakeholders. Modern firewall appliances allow you to configure and manage appropriate permissions to various groups of users and to scale your network and adjust your security profile as your business evolves and as cyber threats grow increasingly complex. Progent works with both new and older security devices from all leading manufacturers like Cisco, Palo Alto Networks, Check Point, Juniper, SonicWall and Fortinet.

  • Remote Endpoint Security Monitoring makes it easy to watch over the various devices used by an at-home workforce and either reject or identify and mitigate the latest threats like ransomware. With Progent's ProSight Active Security Monitoring (ASM) services, a lightweight agent is installed on each secured endpoint device, monitoring all activity and utilizing advanced machine learning to identify zero-day attacks before they can spread. When a cyberattack is discovered, ProSight ASM immediately isolates the targeted endpoint device from the corporate network to quarantine the threat. Because the ProSight Active Security Monitoring agent is autonomous, endpoint devices stay protected even if they are offline.

  • Security Audits can evaluate the vulnerability of your network to all types of external and internal security attacks for a network that includes at-home workers. Progent can deploy remote, automated security inventory scanning for quickly and affordably uncovering a wide variety of security gaps that can be surfaced over the Internet. Progent's security assessment experts, which can be managed by data security experts with advanced credentials including CISM, CISSP, and GIAC, can assist your company to evaluate your operations and policies and review your IT architecture to allow you to implement top-level protection for your an at-home workforce.
