Security and Compliance for At-Home Workers
Teleworkers often run their personal equipment and work in an unsecured environment. This increases their vulnerability to cyber threats and requires judicious deployment of firewalls, remote endpoint monitoring, and the creation of security policies in compliance with best practices. Progent's veteran team of certified cybersecurity experts can help your organization to plan, deploy and manage a modern security solution that safeguards vital data in networks that incorporate an at-home workforce.
- Firewalls enable companies to build a network that can be safely accessed by on-premises users as well as by telecommuters, mobile employees, vendors, clients, and the public. Modern firewall appliances allow you to assign and manage different access rights to various classes of users and to scale your network and adjust your security profile as your business evolves and as cyber threats grow more complex. Progent works with both current and legacy firewall devices from all leading vendors like Cisco, Palo Alto Networks, WatchGuard, Juniper, and Fortinet. To learn more about Progent's firewall configuration services, see firewall support expertise.
- Online Endpoint Security Monitoring makes it easy to track the various devices used by teleworkers and either reject or spot and respond to the latest threats such as ransomware. With ProSight Active Security Monitoring (ASM) services, a small-footprint software agent is installed on every secured endpoint, monitoring all activity and utilizing state-of-the-art AI technology to detect zero-day threats on arrival. When a cyberattack is spotted, ProSight ASM instantly disconnects the infected endpoint device from the network to contain the threat. Because the ProSight Active Security Monitoring agent is autonomous, endpoint devices remain secure even when they are not connected to the Internet. For details about ProSight Active Security Monitoring, refer to remote endpoint security monitoring for remote workers.
- Security Audits can evaluate the vulnerability of your information system to all types of outside and internal security threats for a network that incorporates an at-home workforce. Progent can deploy online, automated security inventory software for quickly and affordably uncovering a wide variety of security weaknesses that can be surfaced via the Internet. Progent's endpoint security audit experts, which can be provided by data security experts with advanced credentials such as CISA, CISSP, and GIAC, can help you to audit your workflows and governance policies and assess your IT architecture to allow you to implement top-level protection for your telecommuters.
