Security for Telecommuters
Teleworkers commonly run their personal equipment and work in a physically unsecured space. This worsens their exposure to cyber threats and calls for careful use of security appliances, remote endpoint monitoring, and the enforcement of policies in compliance with leading practices. Progent's veteran team of certified cybersecurity professionals can assist your company to design, deploy and manage a modern security solution that protects vital data in IT networks that incorporate at-home workers.

  • Firewalls enable you to build a network environment that can be safely accessed by local users and by at-home workers, mobile users, suppliers, clients, and other stakeholders. Modern firewall devices allow you to assign and control different access rights to various classes of users and to expand your network and adjust your security as your business evolves and as network attacks grow more complex. Progent supports both current and legacy firewall appliances from all major vendors including Cisco, Palo Alto Networks, WatchGuard, Juniper, SonicWall and Fortinet. For more information about Progent's firewall support expertise, see firewall integration and support services.
  • Online Endpoint Monitoring makes it possible to watch over the various devices used by remote workers and either block or spot and mitigate modern cyber attacks such as ransomware. With Progent's ProSight Active Security Monitoring (ASM) services, a lightweight software agent is put on every secured endpoint, watching all activity and utilizing advanced behavioral threat analysis to detect new attacks at inception. When a cyberattack is spotted, ProSight Active Security Monitoring instantly disconnects the infected device from the network to quarantine the threat. Because the ProSight Active Security Monitoring software agent is autonomous, endpoints remain secure even if they are disconnected from the Internet. For more information about ProSight ASM, see remote endpoint security monitoring for telecommuters.
  • Security Audits can evaluate the exposure of your network to all classes of external and internal security attacks for an environment that includes an at-home workforce. Progent can run remote, automated cybersecurity inventory scanning for quickly and economically uncovering a wide variety of security weaknesses that can be found over the Internet. Progent's endpoint security audit consulting services, which can be provided by network security experts with advanced credentials including CISM, CISSP, and GIAC, can help you to audit your workflows and policies and review your IT infrastructure to enable you to implement top-level security for your an at-home workforce.
