Cybersecurity for Teleworkers
Teleworkers often use their personal computing devices and work in an unsecured area. This increases their vulnerability to cyber attacks and requires careful use of security appliances, remote endpoint monitoring, and the enforcement of security policies in compliance with best practices. Progent's veteran roster of certified cybersecurity experts can help your organization to plan, deploy and manage a modern security solution that protects vital data in networks that include remote workers.
- Firewalls enable you to create a network that can be safely accessed by on-premises users and by at-home workers, mobile users, suppliers, customers, and other stakeholders. Modern firewall appliances permit you to assign and manage appropriate permissions to different groups of users and to expand your IT network and adjust your security profile as your business evolves and as network attacks become more sophisticated. Progent supports both current and legacy firewall devices from all leading vendors including Cisco, Palo Alto Networks, Check Point, Juniper, SonicWall and Fortinet. For more information about Progent's firewall support expertise, see firewall integration and support expertise.
- Remote Endpoint Security Monitoring makes it possible to watch over the various devices used by at-home workers and either reject or spot and mitigate the latest threats like ransomware. With Progent's ProSight Active Security Monitoring (ASM) services, a lightweight software agent is put on every secured endpoint device, monitoring all activity and using advanced AI technology to detect new threats at inception. When an attack is discovered, ProSight ASM instantly isolates the infected endpoint device from the network to quarantine the threat. Because the ProSight ASM software agent is self-contained, endpoint devices stay secure even when they are offline. For details about ProSight Active Security Monitoring, see remote endpoint security monitoring for remote workers.
- Security Audits can assess the exposure of your information system to all classes of external and local security threats for a network that incorporates telecommuters. Progent can deploy online, automated security analysis software for quickly and economically uncovering a broad range of security gaps that can be surfaced over the Internet. Progent's security assessment experts, which can be managed by security experts with top certifications such as CISA, ISSAP, and GIAC, can assist you to audit your operations and governance policies and assess your WAN architecture to allow you to design the highest level of security for your teleworkers.
