Infrastructure for Telecommuters

Support services offered by Progent to help your company to implement a productive work-at-home infrastructure include:

  • Virtual Private Network connectivity allows you to create a safe tunnel for authenticated at-home workers to access IT assets situated at your company data center or in the cloud. Progent's consultants can help you to deploy and manage VPN connections between your teleworkers and your various IT resources by providing remote VPN integration support. For businesses with Cisco's ASA security appliances, Progent's Cisco-certified ASA consultants can help your remote workers to utilize Cisco's AnyConnect software to provide safe VPN tunneling for a broad range of endpoint devices including Microsoft Windows, Mac, iOS, Linux, and Android.
  • Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) products enable an at-home worker to view and interact with a data center PC's desktop. This technology provides network managers substantial control over the computing environment of telecommuters and ensures remote users a consistent and more productive work experience. Progent's virtual desktop services include Windows Remote Desktop support and Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops VDI solutions.
  • Routers connect at-home computer networks to the Internet and typically support VPN tunnels, local wireless networks, and firewalls. Progent offers expert online support for setting up home routers from a range of vendors. See router integration services from Cisco-certified consultants.
  • Home Wireless networks, often shared by families and guests, are frequently used by at-home employees to access their Internet router for work. This can cause performance and cybersecurity problems. Progent can assist you to mitigate these problems by providing expertise like Aironet integration consulting, Cisco-certified Meraki wireless deployment expertise, and Ubiquiti Unifi wireless access point integration help.
  • Internet connectivity methods affect the speed and availability of connections between at-home workers and the corporate data center. Line-of-business processes might require redundant Internet access in the event the normal connection breaks. Progent offers guidance for identifying ISPs, picking sensible bandwidth and data volume packages, and configuring high-availability Internet connections.
