Security and Compliance for Telecommuters
Teleworkers often use their personal computing devices and work in an unsecured space. This increases their vulnerability to cyber attacks and demands judicious deployment of firewalls, remote monitoring, and the creation of policies that follow best practices. Progent's veteran team of certified data security experts can help you to design, deploy and administer a modern cybersecurity solution that protects critical data in IT networks that incorporate remote workers.
Firewalls allow companies to create a network that can be securely accessed by local users as well as by at-home workers, mobile employees, suppliers, clients, and the public. Next-generation firewall appliances allow you to assign and control different permissions to various groups of users and to expand your IT network and modify your security as your business evolves and as network attacks grow more sophisticated. Progent works with both current and older firewall appliances from all leading vendors like Cisco, Palo Alto Networks, WatchGuard, Juniper, and Fortinet. To find out more about Progent's firewall support services, see firewall configuration and support services.
Remote Endpoint Security Monitoring makes it easy to watch over the various computers used by telecommuters and either reject or spot and respond to the latest cyber attacks such as ransomware. With ProSight Active Security Monitoring (ASM) services, a small-footprint software agent is put on each protected endpoint device, watching all activity and utilizing advanced behavioral threat analysis to detect zero-day attacks before they can spread. When an attack is spotted, ProSight Active Security Monitoring immediately disconnects the impacted endpoint from the corporate network to quarantine the malware. Because the ProSight Active Security Monitoring software agent is autonomous, endpoint devices remain secure even if they are disconnected from the Internet. For details about ProSight Active Security Monitoring, see remote endpoint monitoring for remote workers.
Security Audits can assess the exposure of your network to all types of external and internal security threats for an environment that incorporates at-home workers. Progent can deploy remote, automated security inventory scanning for rapidly and affordably uncovering a wide variety of security gaps that can be surfaced over the Internet. Progent's endpoint security audit experts, which can be provided by data security experts with advanced certifications including CISM, CISSP, and GIAC, can assist you to evaluate your procedures and policies and assess your WAN infrastructure to enable you to implement the highest level of security for your remote workers.
