Cybersecurity for Remote Workers
At-home workers commonly use their own computers and work in an unsecured area. This worsens their vulnerability to cyber threats and requires judicious deployment of firewalls, remote security monitoring, and the enforcement of policies based on leading practices. Progent's veteran team of certified data security professionals can assist your company to design, implement and manage a modern cybersecurity solution that guards vital information in IT networks that include an at-home workforce.
- Firewalls enable you to create a network environment that can be securely utilized by local users as well as by an at-home workforce, mobile users, suppliers, clients, and other stakeholders. Next-generation firewall appliances allow you to configure and manage different permissions to different classes of users and to scale your network and modify your security as your business evolves and as network attacks become increasingly sophisticated. Progent supports both current and legacy firewall devices from all leading vendors including Cisco, Palo Alto Networks, WatchGuard, Juniper, SonicWall and Fortinet.

- Remote Endpoint Security Monitoring makes it easy to watch over the disparate computers used by remote workers and either reject or spot and respond to the latest threats such as ransomware. With Progent's ProSight Active Security Monitoring services, a lightweight software agent is put on each protected endpoint, monitoring all activity and utilizing state-of-the-art machine learning and full execution context to identify zero-day attacks at inception. When an attack is spotted, ProSight ASM immediately disconnects the infected device from the network to quarantine the malware. Because the ProSight Active Security Monitoring software agent is self-contained, endpoints stay secure even if they are disconnected from the Internet.

- Security Audits can evaluate the exposure of your network to all classes of outside and internal security threats for a network that includes teleworkers. Progent can run online, automated cybersecurity inventory software for rapidly and affordably uncovering a wide variety of security gaps that can be found via the Internet. Progent's security audit experts, which can be provided by network security professionals with top credentials including CISA, CISSP, and GIAC, can help your company to evaluate your workflows and policies and review your IT infrastructure to allow you to implement the highest level of security for your teleworkers.
