Security and Compliance for At-Home Workers
Remote workers commonly use their own computers and work in a physically unsecured environment. This increases their vulnerability to cyber threats and requires careful deployment of firewalls, remote endpoint monitoring, and the enforcement of policies that follow leading practices. Progent's veteran team of certified data security experts can help you to plan, deploy and manage a compliant security solution that safeguards critical data in networks that include an at-home workforce.
- Firewalls enable you to create a network that can be securely accessed by local users and by an at-home workforce, mobile workers, suppliers, customers, and other stakeholders. Next-generation firewall devices permit you to configure and control appropriate access rights to various classes of users and to scale your IT network and adjust your security as your company evolves and as network attacks become more complex. Progent supports both current and legacy security appliances from all leading manufacturers including Cisco, Palo Alto Networks, WatchGuard, Juniper, and Fortinet. For details about Progent's firewall configuration services, see firewall configuration and support services.
- Online Endpoint Security Monitoring makes it possible to track the various computers used by teleworkers and either reject or spot and mitigate the latest threats such as ransomware. With Progent's ProSight Active Security Monitoring services, a lightweight agent is put on each secured endpoint device, watching all activity and using advanced machine learning and full execution context to identify new attacks on arrival. When an attack is discovered, ProSight Active Security Monitoring immediately isolates the infected endpoint from the corporate network to quarantine the malware. Since the ProSight Active Security Monitoring software agent is self-contained, endpoint devices remain secure even if they are disconnected from the Internet.

- Security Audits can evaluate the exposure of your information system to all classes of outside and local security threats for an environment that includes remote workers. Progent can deploy remote, automated cybersecurity inventory software for rapidly and affordably uncovering a wide variety of security weaknesses that can be found via the Internet. Progent's endpoint security audit experts, which can be managed by network security professionals with top certifications including CISA, ISSAP, and GIAC, can assist your company to evaluate your processes and policies and review your network infrastructure to allow you to design the highest level of security for your telecommuters.
