Cybersecurity for Telecommuters
Telecommuters often run their personal equipment and work in a physically unsecured space. This increases their exposure to cyber threats and requires judicious deployment of security appliances, remote monitoring, and the enforcement of policies that follow best practices. Progent's veteran roster of certified data security professionals can help your company to plan, deploy and manage a compliant security environment that protects vital data in networks that include at-home workers.

  • Firewalls enable you to build a network environment that can be safely utilized by local users and by at-home workers, mobile users, vendors, customers, and the public. Modern firewall appliances permit you to assign and manage different access rights to different classes of users and to scale your network and adjust your security as your company evolves and as cyber threats grow more complex. Progent works with both current and legacy security appliances from all major manufacturers like Cisco, Palo Alto Networks, Check Point, Juniper, SonicWall and Fortinet.

  • Remote Endpoint Monitoring makes it possible to watch over the disparate computers utilized by telecommuters and either block or identify and mitigate the latest threats such as ransomware. With Progent's ProSight Active Security Monitoring services, a lightweight software agent is put on each secured endpoint, monitoring all activity and utilizing state-of-the-art machine learning to detect zero-day attacks on arrival. When an attack is spotted, ProSight ASM immediately isolates the infected endpoint from the corporate network to quarantine the malware. Because the ProSight Active Security Monitoring agent is autonomous, endpoints remain protected even when they are disconnected from the Internet. For details about ProSight Active Security Monitoring, refer to remote endpoint monitoring for teleworkers.
  • Security Audits can assess the exposure of your network to all classes of external and internal security threats for a network that incorporates telecommuters. Progent can deploy remote, automated security analysis software for rapidly and economically detecting a broad range of security weaknesses that can be found over the Internet. Progent's endpoint security audit consulting services, which can be managed by data security professionals with advanced certifications such as CISM, CISSP, and GIAC, can help your business to audit your procedures and policies and review your WAN infrastructure to allow you to design the highest level of security for your at-home workers.
