Security for At-Home Workers
Remote workers commonly use their personal computers and work in a physically unsecured area. This worsens their exposure to cyber threats and demands careful use of firewalls, remote security monitoring, and the enforcement of security policies in compliance with leading practices. Progent's veteran roster of certified cybersecurity experts can assist you to design, deploy and manage a compliant security environment that guards vital information in networks that include an at-home workforce.

  • Firewalls enable you to create a network that can be safely accessed by on-premises users as well as by an at-home workforce, mobile employees, suppliers, clients, and other stakeholders. Next-generation firewall appliances permit you to assign and control different permissions to various groups of users and to scale your network and adjust your cybersecurity posture as your business evolves and as network attacks grow more sophisticated. Progent supports both new and older firewall appliances from all major manufacturers like Cisco, Palo Alto Networks, WatchGuard, Juniper, and Fortinet. To learn more about Progent's firewall configuration services, see firewall support expertise.
  • Remote Endpoint Security Monitoring makes it easy to track the various devices utilized by remote workers and either reject or identify and mitigate modern cyber attacks such as ransomware. With ProSight Active Security Monitoring (ASM) services, a lightweight agent is put on every secured endpoint device, monitoring all activity and using advanced AI technology to detect zero-day attacks at inception. When an attack is spotted, ProSight ASM immediately isolates the targeted endpoint from the network to contain the threat. Because the ProSight Active Security Monitoring agent is self-contained, endpoint devices remain secure even if they are disconnected from the Internet. For more information about ProSight ASM, refer to remote endpoint security monitoring for at-home workers.
  • Security Audits can assess the vulnerability of your network to all types of external and internal security attacks for an environment that incorporates teleworkers. Progent can deploy online, automated cybersecurity inventory scanning for rapidly and economically detecting a wide variety of security holes that can be surfaced via the Internet. Progent's security assessment consulting services, which can be managed by network security professionals with top credentials including CISA, CISSP, and GIAC, can help you to audit your workflows and policies and review your IT infrastructure to allow you to design top-level security for your remote workers.
