Cybersecurity for Teleworkers
Telecommuters often use their own equipment and work in a physically unsecured environment. This worsens their vulnerability to cyber attacks and demands careful use of firewalls, remote security monitoring, and the creation of policies in compliance with best practices. Progent's seasoned team of certified cybersecurity professionals can help your business to plan, deploy and administer a compliant security solution that safeguards sensitive information in IT networks that incorporate at-home workers.

  • Firewalls enable you to build a network that can be safely accessed by local users as well as by teleworkers, mobile workers, suppliers, clients, and other stakeholders. Next-generation firewall appliances allow you to configure and manage appropriate access rights to different groups of users and to expand your network and modify your security profile as your company evolves and as cyber threats grow more sophisticated. Progent supports both current and older firewall appliances from all major vendors including Cisco, Palo Alto Networks, Check Point, Juniper, and Fortinet.

  • Remote Endpoint Security Monitoring makes it easy to watch over the various devices utilized by teleworkers and either block or spot and mitigate modern threats like ransomware. With ProSight Active Security Monitoring (ASM) services, a small-footprint software agent is put on each secured endpoint, watching all activity and using advanced machine learning and full execution context to detect new attacks before they can spread. When a cyberattack is discovered, ProSight Active Security Monitoring instantly isolates the infected endpoint device from the corporate network to contain the malware. Since the ProSight ASM software agent is autonomous, endpoints remain protected even when they are disconnected from the Internet. To find out more about ProSight ASM, see remote endpoint monitoring for an at-home workforce.
  • Security Audits can evaluate the exposure of your network to all types of outside and local security threats for an environment that incorporates at-home workers. Progent can deploy online, automated cybersecurity analysis software for quickly and economically uncovering a broad range of security weaknesses that can be found via the Internet. Progent's endpoint security audit consulting services, which can be provided by data security professionals with top certifications such as CISM, CISSP, and GIAC, can help your company to evaluate your operations and governance policies and review your network infrastructure to allow you to implement the highest level of security for your telecommuters.
