Security and Compliance for Telecommuters
Remote workers often use their personal computing devices and work in a physically unsecured area. This increases their vulnerability to cyber attacks and demands careful use of firewalls, remote monitoring, and the enforcement of policies that follow best practices. Progent's seasoned roster of certified data security experts can help your company to plan, implement and manage a modern cybersecurity environment that safeguards critical data in networks that include at-home workers.

  • Firewalls enable you to create a network environment that can be safely utilized by on-premises users and by an at-home workforce, mobile users, suppliers, customers, and other stakeholders. Next-generation firewall appliances permit you to configure and control different permissions to various groups of users and to expand your network and adjust your security profile as your business evolves and as network attacks grow increasingly complex. Progent supports both current and legacy security appliances from all major vendors like Cisco, Palo Alto Networks, WatchGuard, Juniper, SonicWall and Fortinet.

  • Remote Endpoint Security Monitoring makes it easy to watch over the various computers utilized by an at-home workforce and either reject or identify and respond to the latest threats like ransomware. With Progent's ProSight Active Security Monitoring (ASM) services, a small-footprint software agent is put on each secured endpoint device, watching all activity and utilizing advanced AI technology to identify zero-day attacks on arrival. When a cyberattack is discovered, ProSight Active Security Monitoring instantly disconnects the impacted endpoint from the corporate network to contain the malware. Since the ProSight ASM agent is autonomous, endpoint devices remain protected even if they are not connected to 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 information system to all classes of outside and local security attacks for an environment that incorporates remote workers. Progent can deploy remote, automated cybersecurity analysis scanning for quickly and affordably detecting a wide variety of security weaknesses that can be found via the Internet. Progent's security assessment consulting services, which can be managed by security experts with top certifications including CISM, ISSAP, and GIAC, can assist you to evaluate your procedures and policies and review your WAN architecture to enable you to implement top-level security for your at-home workers.
