Security for Telecommuters
At-home workers commonly run their own computers and work in an unsecured space. This increases their vulnerability to cyber attacks and requires careful deployment of firewalls, remote endpoint monitoring, and the creation of policies that follow best practices. Progent's veteran team of certified cybersecurity experts can help you to plan, implement and administer a modern security environment that protects sensitive information in IT networks that include at-home workers.

  • Firewalls allow companies to build a network environment that can be securely accessed by local users as well as by telecommuters, mobile employees, vendors, customers, and the public. Next-generation firewall devices permit you to configure and control different permissions to various classes of users and to expand your IT network and adjust your security as your business evolves and as cyber threats grow more complex. Progent supports both new and older firewall devices from all leading manufacturers including Cisco, Palo Alto Networks, Check Point, Juniper, and Fortinet.

  • Online Endpoint Security Monitoring makes it possible to track the disparate computers used by remote workers and either reject or spot and mitigate modern threats like ransomware. With Progent's ProSight Active Security Monitoring services, a lightweight software agent is installed on each protected endpoint device, monitoring all activity and using state-of-the-art behavioral threat analysis to detect zero-day threats before they can spread. When a cyberattack is spotted, ProSight Active Security Monitoring instantly disconnects the impacted device from the corporate network to contain the threat. Since the ProSight ASM agent is self-contained, endpoint devices remain protected even if they are disconnected from the Internet.

  • Security Audits can evaluate the vulnerability of your information system to all classes of outside and local security attacks for an environment that includes teleworkers. Progent can deploy remote, automated security analysis software for quickly and economically detecting a broad range of security holes that can be found over the Internet. Progent's endpoint security audit experts, which can be provided by data security experts with top certifications such as CISM, CISSP, and GIAC, can assist your business to evaluate your processes and policies and review your WAN infrastructure to enable you to implement the highest level of protection for your at-home workers.
