Security and Compliance for At-Home Workers
At-home workers often run their own computing devices and work in a physically unsecured space. This increases their exposure to cyber attacks and calls for judicious use of security appliances, remote endpoint monitoring, and the enforcement of security policies based on leading practices. Progent's veteran team of certified cybersecurity professionals can help your organization to plan, deploy and manage a modern security solution that safeguards sensitive data in IT networks that incorporate at-home workers.

  • Firewalls allow you to build a network that can be securely utilized by local users and by an at-home workforce, mobile employees, suppliers, customers, and other stakeholders. Modern firewall devices permit you to assign and control appropriate permissions to various groups of users and to expand your IT network and modify your security profile as your company evolves and as network attacks grow more complex. Progent works with both new and older security appliances from all leading manufacturers like Cisco, Palo Alto Networks, WatchGuard, Juniper, and Fortinet. For details about Progent's firewall support services, see firewall configuration and support expertise.
  • Remote Endpoint Security Monitoring makes it possible to track the various computers used by an at-home workforce and either block or identify and respond to the latest threats such as ransomware. With Progent's ProSight Active Security Monitoring (ASM) services, a lightweight agent is installed on each protected endpoint device, watching all activity and utilizing advanced behavioral threat analysis to identify zero-day threats at inception. When an attack is discovered, ProSight Active Security Monitoring immediately disconnects the impacted device from the corporate network to contain the threat. Since the ProSight Active Security Monitoring agent is autonomous, endpoint devices remain protected even if they are not connected to the Internet.

  • Security Audits can evaluate the exposure of your network to all types of external and internal security threats for a network that includes at-home workers. Progent can deploy online, automated cybersecurity analysis 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 security experts with advanced certifications including CISA, ISSAP, and GIAC, can help you to audit your workflows and governance policies and review your WAN architecture to enable you to design top-level security for your teleworkers.
