Cybersecurity for Telecommuters
Telecommuters often use their own computers and work in an unsecured area. This worsens their vulnerability to cyber threats and requires judicious use of firewalls, remote monitoring, and the creation of security policies in compliance with best practices. Progent's veteran roster of certified cybersecurity professionals can assist your business to plan, implement and administer a modern security solution that protects vital data in IT networks that incorporate remote workers.
- Firewalls allow companies to build a network that can be safely utilized by on-premises users and by at-home workers, mobile workers, suppliers, customers, and other stakeholders. Modern firewall devices allow you to configure and manage appropriate access rights to various classes of users and to expand your IT network and adjust your security as your company evolves and as network attacks grow more sophisticated. Progent supports both new and legacy firewall devices from all major manufacturers including Cisco, Palo Alto Networks, Check Point, Juniper, SonicWall and Fortinet. To find out more about Progent's firewall support services, refer to firewall support services.
- Online Endpoint Security Monitoring makes it easy to watch over the disparate devices used by telecommuters and either block or identify and respond to modern cyber attacks such as ransomware. With ProSight Active Security Monitoring services, a lightweight agent is put on each protected endpoint device, monitoring all activity and using advanced machine learning to identify new threats on arrival. When a cyberattack is discovered, ProSight Active Security Monitoring instantly isolates the infected endpoint device from the corporate network to contain the threat. Because the ProSight ASM software agent is self-contained, endpoints stay secure even when they are disconnected from the Internet.

- Security Audits can assess the vulnerability of your information system to all classes of outside and internal security threats for a network that incorporates at-home workers. Progent can deploy remote, automated security inventory software for rapidly and economically detecting a wide variety of security holes that can be surfaced over the Internet. Progent's endpoint security assessment experts, which can be provided by security experts with advanced credentials such as CISA, CISSP, and GIAC, can assist your business to evaluate your operations and governance policies and review your IT architecture to allow you to design top-level protection for your teleworkers.
