Security and Compliance for At-Home Workers
Remote workers commonly run their personal computers and work in a physically unsecured area. This increases their vulnerability to cyber threats and requires judicious use of security appliances, remote security monitoring, and the creation of policies based on best practices. Progent's seasoned roster of certified data security professionals can help your business to design, deploy and administer a compliant security solution that guards vital information in IT networks that include telecommuters.

  • Firewalls allow you to create a network environment that can be safely utilized by on-premises users and by telecommuters, mobile users, vendors, clients, and other stakeholders. Modern firewall appliances allow you to assign and control appropriate access rights to different classes of users and to expand your network and adjust your security profile as your company evolves and as network attacks grow increasingly complex. Progent works with both current and legacy firewall devices from all major vendors like Cisco, Palo Alto Networks, Check Point, Juniper, and Fortinet.

  • Remote Endpoint Monitoring makes it possible to track the disparate devices utilized by at-home workers and either reject or spot and mitigate the latest threats like ransomware. With ProSight Active Security Monitoring services, a lightweight software agent is installed on each protected endpoint device, monitoring all activity and utilizing state-of-the-art machine learning and full execution context to detect zero-day attacks before they can spread. When a cyberattack is spotted, ProSight Active Security Monitoring immediately isolates the targeted device from the network to quarantine the threat. Because the ProSight Active Security Monitoring agent is self-contained, endpoint devices remain secure even when they are disconnected from the Internet.

  • Security Audits can assess the vulnerability of your network to all classes of outside and local security threats for an environment that includes telecommuters. Progent can deploy online, automated security analysis software for quickly and economically detecting a broad range of security weaknesses that can be found via the Internet. Progent's endpoint security assessment consulting services, which can be provided by data security experts with top credentials such as CISA, ISSAP, and GIAC, can assist your company to audit your procedures and governance policies and review your WAN infrastructure to allow you to design top-level security for your remote workers.
