Cybersecurity for Remote Workers
At-home workers commonly run their own computers and work in a physically unsecured environment. This worsens their vulnerability to cyber threats and requires careful use of firewalls, remote monitoring, and the creation of policies that follow best practices. Progent's seasoned roster of certified cybersecurity experts can help your business to plan, deploy and manage a modern cybersecurity solution that safeguards critical data in networks that include at-home workers.
- Firewalls allow you to create a network environment that can be securely accessed by on-premises users and by telecommuters, mobile workers, vendors, clients, and other stakeholders. Next-generation firewall appliances allow you to assign and manage appropriate access rights to various groups of users and to scale your network and adjust your security profile as your company evolves and as network attacks become more complex. Progent works with both current and legacy firewall appliances from all leading vendors including Cisco, Palo Alto Networks, Check Point, Juniper, SonicWall and Fortinet.

- Online Endpoint Monitoring makes it easy to watch over the various devices utilized by teleworkers and either reject or spot and mitigate modern threats like ransomware. With Progent's ProSight Active Security Monitoring (ASM) services, a small-footprint software agent is put on every protected endpoint, watching all activity and using state-of-the-art machine learning to identify new threats at inception. When a cyberattack is discovered, ProSight ASM immediately isolates the impacted device from the network to contain the malware. Since the ProSight Active Security Monitoring software agent is self-contained, endpoint devices remain secure even when they are not connected to the Internet.

- Security Audits can evaluate the vulnerability of your information system to all classes of outside and local security attacks for an environment that includes remote workers. Progent can deploy remote, automated cybersecurity inventory scanning for rapidly and economically detecting a broad range of security weaknesses that can be found over the Internet. Progent's security assessment experts, which can be provided by network security experts with top credentials including CISM, ISSAP, and GIAC, can assist your business to evaluate your processes and policies and assess your network infrastructure to enable you to implement the highest level of protection for your remote workers.
