Cybersecurity for Telecommuters
Remote workers often run their personal computers and work in a physically unsecured area. This worsens their exposure to cyber attacks and calls for careful use of firewalls, remote monitoring, and the creation of security policies that follow best practices. Progent's veteran team of certified cybersecurity professionals can assist you to design, implement and manage a modern security solution that guards vital information in IT networks that incorporate teleworkers.
- Firewalls enable companies to create a network that can be securely utilized by local users as well as by an at-home workforce, mobile users, vendors, clients, and other stakeholders. Next-generation firewall appliances permit you to configure and control appropriate access rights to different groups of users and to expand your IT network and modify your security as your company evolves and as cyber threats grow increasingly sophisticated. Progent works with both current and legacy firewall devices from all leading vendors including Cisco, Palo Alto Networks, WatchGuard, Juniper, SonicWall and Fortinet. For details about Progent's firewall configuration services, see firewall integration and support services.
- Remote Endpoint Monitoring makes it possible to track the various devices used by an at-home workforce and either reject or spot and mitigate the latest cyber attacks like ransomware. With Progent's ProSight Active Security Monitoring (ASM) services, a small-footprint agent is put on each secured endpoint device, watching all activity and utilizing state-of-the-art machine learning and full execution context to detect zero-day threats at inception. When a cyberattack is spotted, ProSight ASM instantly disconnects the infected endpoint device from the network to quarantine the malware. Since the ProSight Active Security Monitoring agent is autonomous, endpoint devices remain secure even if they are not connected to the Internet.

- Security Audits can evaluate the exposure of your network to all types of external and internal security attacks for a network that includes remote workers. Progent can deploy online, automated security analysis software for quickly and affordably detecting a broad range of security holes that can be surfaced via the Internet. Progent's endpoint security audit consulting services, which can be managed by network security professionals with top credentials such as CISM, CISSP, and GIAC, can assist your business to audit your operations and governance policies and review your network infrastructure to allow you to design the highest level of protection for your telecommuters.
