Security and Compliance for Teleworkers
Teleworkers often use their own computers and work in an unsecured space. This worsens their exposure to cyber attacks and requires careful deployment of firewalls, remote security monitoring, and the enforcement of security policies based on leading practices. Progent's veteran team of certified cybersecurity professionals can help your organization to design, deploy and administer a compliant cybersecurity environment that guards vital information in IT networks that include teleworkers.
- Firewalls allow companies to build a network that can be securely accessed by local users as well as by at-home workers, mobile users, vendors, clients, and other stakeholders. Modern firewall appliances permit you to assign and control different permissions to different classes of users and to scale your network and modify your security as your business evolves and as network attacks grow more sophisticated. Progent works with both new and older security appliances from all major manufacturers including Cisco, Palo Alto Networks, Check Point, Juniper, SonicWall and Fortinet.

- Remote Endpoint Security Monitoring makes it easy to track the disparate computers utilized by at-home workers and either reject or spot and mitigate modern threats such as ransomware. With Progent's ProSight Active Security Monitoring services, a lightweight software agent is installed on each secured endpoint device, watching all activity and using advanced AI technology to detect zero-day attacks at inception. When an attack is spotted, ProSight ASM immediately isolates the impacted endpoint device from the network to quarantine the malware. Since the ProSight ASM software agent is autonomous, endpoints remain protected even if they are offline.

- Security Audits can assess the exposure of your network to all types of external and local security attacks for a network that incorporates teleworkers. Progent can deploy online, automated security inventory software for quickly and economically uncovering a broad range of security gaps that can be found via the Internet. Progent's security audit experts, which can be managed by security professionals with advanced credentials including CISM, ISSAP, and GIAC, can help you to audit your operations and governance policies and review your network infrastructure to allow you to design the highest level of protection for your teleworkers.
