Security for At-Home Workers
Remote workers often run their personal computers and work in a physically unsecured environment. This increases their exposure to cyber attacks and demands judicious use of security appliances, remote security monitoring, and the creation of policies in compliance with best practices. Progent's seasoned roster of certified cybersecurity experts can assist your business to plan, implement and manage a modern cybersecurity solution that guards critical information in networks that incorporate teleworkers.
Firewalls enable you to build a network that can be securely accessed by on-premises users as well as by at-home workers, mobile users, suppliers, clients, and the public. Next-generation firewall appliances allow you to assign and control appropriate access rights to various groups of users and to scale your network and adjust your cybersecurity posture as your company evolves and as network attacks become increasingly sophisticated. Progent supports both current and legacy firewall devices from all leading vendors like Cisco, Palo Alto Networks, WatchGuard, Juniper, and Fortinet.

Online Endpoint Security Monitoring makes it easy to watch over the disparate computers used by at-home workers and either block or spot and mitigate the latest threats like ransomware. With Progent's ProSight Active Security Monitoring (ASM) services, a lightweight agent is put on every secured endpoint, monitoring all activity and using advanced machine learning and full execution context to detect zero-day threats on arrival. When a cyberattack is spotted, ProSight Active Security Monitoring immediately disconnects the impacted endpoint from the network to contain the malware. Because the ProSight ASM software agent is self-contained, endpoint devices remain protected even when they are offline.

Security Audits can evaluate the exposure of your information system to all classes of external and internal security attacks for a network that incorporates teleworkers. Progent can deploy online, automated cybersecurity inventory scanning for rapidly and economically detecting a wide variety of security holes that can be found via the Internet. Progent's security audit consulting services, which can be provided by network security professionals with advanced credentials such as CISM, ISSAP, and GIAC, can help your business to evaluate your workflows and policies and review your network architecture to enable you to design top-level security for your teleworkers.
