Cybersecurity for At-Home Workers
Teleworkers often run their own computing devices and work in an unsecured area. This worsens their exposure to cyber attacks and requires judicious deployment of firewalls, remote security monitoring, and the creation of security policies that adhere to leading practices. Progent's seasoned team of certified cybersecurity experts can assist you to plan, implement and manage a modern security environment that guards critical data in networks that include telecommuters.
- Firewalls allow companies to build a network environment that can be securely accessed by local users and by at-home workers, mobile employees, suppliers, customers, and the public. Next-generation firewall appliances allow you to assign and manage different permissions to various classes of users and to expand 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 major manufacturers including Cisco, Palo Alto Networks, Check Point, Juniper, SonicWall and Fortinet.

- Online Endpoint Monitoring makes it possible to track the various computers used by teleworkers and either reject or spot and respond to modern cyber attacks such as ransomware. With Progent's ProSight Active Security Monitoring services, a small-footprint agent is installed on every protected endpoint device, watching all activity and using state-of-the-art machine learning and full execution context to detect zero-day threats before they can spread. When a cyberattack is spotted, ProSight Active Security Monitoring immediately disconnects the impacted endpoint from the network to contain the threat. Since the ProSight Active Security Monitoring agent is autonomous, endpoint devices stay secure even if they are not connected to the Internet.

- Security Audits can evaluate the vulnerability of your network to all types of external and local security threats for a network that incorporates at-home workers. Progent can deploy remote, automated security inventory scanning for quickly and affordably detecting a broad range of security weaknesses that can be surfaced over the Internet. Progent's endpoint security audit consulting services, which can be managed by data security professionals with top certifications including CISA, CISSP, and GIAC, can assist your company to evaluate your workflows and governance policies and review your network infrastructure to allow you to design top-level security for your telecommuters.
