Security for Telecommuters
At-home workers often use their own equipment and work in an unsecured space. This worsens their vulnerability to cyber threats and calls for judicious use of firewalls, remote security monitoring, and the creation of policies in compliance with leading practices. Progent's veteran roster of certified data security professionals can assist your organization to plan, deploy and manage a compliant security solution that protects sensitive information in networks that include telecommuters.
- Firewalls enable companies to build a network that can be securely utilized by local users as well as by an at-home workforce, mobile workers, suppliers, clients, and the public. Next-generation firewall appliances allow you to configure and control appropriate access rights to various groups of users and to scale your network and adjust your security as your business evolves and as network attacks become increasingly sophisticated. Progent supports both new and legacy firewall appliances from all leading manufacturers like Cisco, Palo Alto Networks, WatchGuard, Juniper, and Fortinet. To find out more about Progent's firewall configuration services, refer to firewall integration and support services.
- Remote Endpoint Monitoring makes it easy to track the disparate devices utilized by telecommuters and either reject or spot and respond to modern cyber attacks such as ransomware. With ProSight Active Security Monitoring services, a small-footprint agent is installed on every secured endpoint, monitoring all activity and using advanced machine learning and full execution context to detect new threats on arrival. When a cyberattack is discovered, ProSight Active Security Monitoring immediately disconnects the impacted endpoint device from the network to contain 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 Active Security Monitoring, refer to remote endpoint security monitoring for teleworkers.
- Security Audits can evaluate the exposure of your information system to all types of external and local security threats for a network that incorporates an at-home workforce. Progent can run remote, automated security inventory software for rapidly and affordably uncovering a wide variety of security holes that can be surfaced via the Internet. Progent's security audit consulting services, which can be managed by security professionals with top certifications such as CISA, ISSAP, and GIAC, can assist your business to audit your operations and governance policies and assess your network infrastructure to allow you to design top-level protection for your at-home workers.
