Security for Remote Workers
At-home workers commonly use their own equipment and work in an unsecured space. This worsens their exposure to cyber threats and requires judicious use of firewalls, remote monitoring, and the enforcement of policies that follow leading practices. Progent's veteran roster of certified cybersecurity experts can assist you to design, implement and administer a modern security solution that protects sensitive data in IT networks that include teleworkers.
- Firewalls allow you to create a network that can be securely utilized by on-premises users and by an at-home workforce, mobile employees, suppliers, customers, and the public. Modern firewall appliances allow you to assign and control different access rights to different groups of users and to scale your network and modify your security as your company evolves and as network attacks become more complex. Progent supports both new and older firewall devices from all major vendors including Cisco, Palo Alto Networks, WatchGuard, Juniper, and Fortinet. For details about Progent's firewall configuration services, go to firewall support expertise.
- Remote Endpoint Security Monitoring makes it possible to track the various devices used by at-home workers and either block or spot and respond to the latest threats such as ransomware. With ProSight Active Security Monitoring (ASM) services, a small-footprint software agent is installed on every protected endpoint device, watching all activity and utilizing advanced machine learning and full execution context to identify zero-day attacks on arrival. When a cyberattack is discovered, ProSight ASM immediately disconnects the impacted device from the corporate network to quarantine the threat. Because the ProSight ASM agent is autonomous, endpoint devices remain protected even when they are disconnected from the Internet. To find out more about ProSight ASM, refer to remote endpoint security monitoring for an at-home workforce.
- Security Audits can evaluate the vulnerability of your network to all classes of external and local security threats for a network that incorporates an at-home workforce. Progent can deploy online, automated security inventory software for quickly and affordably uncovering a wide variety of security gaps that can be surfaced via the Internet. Progent's endpoint security audit consulting services, which can be provided by network security professionals with advanced credentials including CISM, CISSP, and GIAC, can assist your company to audit your procedures and governance policies and assess your network infrastructure to enable you to implement top-level security for your at-home workers.
