Cybersecurity for Remote Workers
Teleworkers often use their personal computers and work in an unsecured area. This increases their vulnerability to cyber threats and requires judicious use of firewalls, remote security monitoring, and the enforcement of security policies in compliance with leading practices. Progent's veteran team of certified cybersecurity experts can assist your organization to plan, deploy and manage a compliant cybersecurity environment that safeguards critical information in networks that include at-home workers.

  • Firewalls allow you to create a network environment that can be safely utilized by on-premises users as well as by telecommuters, mobile users, vendors, customers, and the public. Next-generation firewall devices allow you to configure and control appropriate permissions to various groups of users and to expand your network and adjust your security profile as your company evolves and as cyber threats become increasingly complex. Progent supports both current and legacy security devices from all major vendors including Cisco, Palo Alto Networks, WatchGuard, Juniper, SonicWall and Fortinet. For more information about Progent's firewall configuration services, refer to firewall configuration and support services.
  • Online Endpoint Security Monitoring makes it easy to track the disparate computers utilized by telecommuters and either block or spot and respond to the latest threats like ransomware. With Progent's ProSight Active Security Monitoring services, a lightweight software agent is installed on every protected endpoint, watching all activity and using advanced machine learning to detect zero-day threats on arrival. When a cyberattack is spotted, ProSight Active Security Monitoring immediately disconnects the impacted device from the network to contain the malware. Since the ProSight ASM software agent is autonomous, endpoints stay protected even when they are not connected to the Internet. For details about ProSight ASM, go to remote endpoint security monitoring for an at-home workforce.
  • Security Audits can evaluate the exposure of your information system to all types of external and internal security attacks for an environment that includes an at-home workforce. Progent can deploy remote, automated security analysis scanning for quickly and affordably uncovering a wide variety of security gaps that can be found via the Internet. Progent's security audit consulting services, which can be provided by data security professionals with top credentials including CISA, CISSP, and GIAC, can help your company to evaluate your operations and governance policies and assess your WAN infrastructure to enable you to design the highest level of protection for your an at-home workforce.
