Security and Compliance for Telecommuters
Remote workers commonly use their own computers and work in a physically unsecured space. This increases their exposure to cyber threats and requires judicious deployment of firewalls, remote monitoring, and the creation of policies based on best practices. Progent's veteran team of certified cybersecurity experts can help your business to design, implement and manage a modern cybersecurity solution that safeguards critical information in IT networks that include an at-home workforce.
- Firewalls allow you to create a network that can be safely accessed by local users as well as by teleworkers, mobile employees, vendors, clients, and other stakeholders. Next-generation firewall devices allow you to assign and control appropriate access rights to different classes of users and to scale your network and modify your security profile as your company evolves and as cyber threats become more sophisticated. Progent works with both current and older security appliances from all major manufacturers like Cisco, Palo Alto Networks, Check Point, Juniper, SonicWall and Fortinet.

- Remote Endpoint Monitoring makes it easy to watch over the various computers utilized by telecommuters and either block or spot and mitigate the latest cyber attacks such as ransomware. With Progent's ProSight Active Security Monitoring (ASM) services, a lightweight software agent is put on every protected endpoint device, watching all activity and utilizing state-of-the-art AI technology to identify new threats before they can spread. When a cyberattack is discovered, ProSight ASM instantly disconnects the targeted device from the corporate network to quarantine the threat. Because the ProSight ASM software agent is autonomous, endpoint devices stay protected even when they are not connected to the Internet. For more information about ProSight ASM, see remote endpoint security monitoring for telecommuters.
- Security Audits can assess the exposure of your network to all types of external and local security threats for an environment that incorporates teleworkers. Progent can deploy remote, automated cybersecurity analysis scanning for quickly and affordably detecting a wide variety of security weaknesses that can be found via the Internet. Progent's security audit experts, which can be provided by network security experts with advanced credentials including CISA, ISSAP, and GIAC, can help your business to evaluate your workflows and policies and assess your network infrastructure to enable you to implement top-level protection for your at-home workers.
