Security and Compliance for At-Home Workers
Teleworkers commonly use their own equipment and work in a physically unsecured environment. This worsens their vulnerability to cyber attacks and calls for judicious deployment of firewalls, remote security monitoring, and the creation of security policies that follow leading practices. Progent's veteran team of certified data security experts can help your organization to design, deploy and manage a compliant security solution that safeguards critical information in networks that incorporate at-home workers.
- Firewalls allow you to create a network environment that can be safely utilized by on-premises users and by at-home workers, mobile workers, vendors, customers, and other stakeholders. Modern firewall appliances permit you to configure and control appropriate access rights to various groups of users and to scale your IT network and adjust your security profile as your company evolves and as cyber threats become increasingly complex. Progent works with both current and older security devices from all leading manufacturers including Cisco, Palo Alto Networks, Check Point, Juniper, SonicWall and Fortinet. For details about Progent's firewall integration expertise, refer to firewall configuration and support services.
- Online Endpoint Monitoring makes it possible to track the disparate devices used by an at-home workforce and either reject or spot and mitigate the latest cyber attacks such as ransomware. With ProSight Active Security Monitoring (ASM) services, a small-footprint software agent is installed on every secured endpoint device, watching all activity and utilizing advanced machine learning and full execution context to detect zero-day threats on arrival. When an attack is discovered, ProSight ASM instantly isolates the impacted endpoint device from the corporate network to contain the malware. Because the ProSight ASM agent is autonomous, endpoint devices remain protected even when they are offline. For details about ProSight ASM, go to remote endpoint monitoring for remote workers.
- Security Audits can assess the vulnerability of your network to all classes of outside and internal security attacks for a network that includes teleworkers. Progent can deploy online, automated cybersecurity analysis software for rapidly and affordably detecting a broad range of security holes that can be surfaced over the Internet. Progent's endpoint security audit consulting services, which can be managed by network security professionals with advanced certifications including CISA, CISSP, and GIAC, can assist your business to evaluate your procedures and governance policies and review your network infrastructure to enable you to implement top-level security for your telecommuters.
