Cybersecurity for Teleworkers
Teleworkers commonly use their own equipment and work in a physically unsecured environment. This increases their vulnerability to cyber attacks and requires careful use of firewalls, remote monitoring, and the enforcement of policies in compliance with best practices. Progent's seasoned team of certified cybersecurity experts can help your organization to design, deploy and administer a compliant security solution that safeguards critical information in IT networks that include teleworkers.
- Firewalls allow companies to create a network environment that can be safely accessed by on-premises users as well as by an at-home workforce, mobile employees, suppliers, clients, and the public. Next-generation firewall appliances permit you to configure and manage appropriate permissions to different groups of users and to expand your IT network and adjust your security profile as your company evolves and as cyber threats become more sophisticated. Progent supports both new and legacy security appliances from all leading manufacturers including Cisco, Palo Alto Networks, Check Point, Juniper, SonicWall and Fortinet. To learn more about Progent's firewall configuration services, refer to firewall configuration and support services.
- Remote Endpoint Security Monitoring makes it easy to watch over the various computers used by at-home workers and either block or spot and mitigate the latest cyber attacks like ransomware. With Progent's ProSight Active Security Monitoring services, a small-footprint software agent is installed on each protected endpoint device, monitoring all activity and utilizing advanced machine learning to detect zero-day attacks before they can spread. When an attack is spotted, ProSight ASM instantly disconnects the impacted device from the corporate network to quarantine the malware. Because the ProSight Active Security Monitoring agent is self-contained, endpoint devices stay protected even if they are disconnected from the Internet. For more information about ProSight ASM, go to remote endpoint monitoring for teleworkers.
- Security Audits can evaluate the vulnerability of your network to all classes of outside and local security threats for an environment that incorporates an at-home workforce. Progent can run online, automated cybersecurity inventory software for rapidly and affordably detecting a wide variety of security gaps that can be found over the Internet. Progent's endpoint security audit experts, which can be provided by security professionals with advanced certifications such as CISM, CISSP, and GIAC, can help you to evaluate your workflows and governance policies and review your IT architecture to enable you to design top-level protection for your remote workers.
