Security and Compliance for Teleworkers
Telecommuters often use their own computers and work in a physically unsecured environment. This increases their vulnerability to cyber threats and demands careful deployment of security appliances, remote endpoint monitoring, and the enforcement of security policies that adhere to leading practices. Progent's seasoned team of certified data security professionals can help your organization to design, implement and administer a compliant security environment that protects critical information in networks that include teleworkers.
- Firewalls allow companies to build a network that can be securely utilized by on-premises users and by telecommuters, mobile workers, vendors, clients, and the public. Modern firewall devices allow you to assign and manage different access rights to various classes of users and to scale your network and adjust your security as your company evolves and as cyber threats grow more complex. Progent works with both current and older firewall devices from all major vendors like Cisco, Palo Alto Networks, WatchGuard, Juniper, SonicWall and Fortinet. For details about Progent's firewall integration services, refer to firewall integration and support services.
- Online Endpoint Monitoring makes it easy to track the various computers used by teleworkers and either reject or identify and respond to modern threats such as ransomware. With ProSight Active Security Monitoring (ASM) services, a small-footprint agent is installed on every secured endpoint device, monitoring all activity and utilizing state-of-the-art machine learning and full execution context to detect new attacks before they can spread. When an attack is spotted, ProSight ASM instantly disconnects the targeted device from the corporate network to quarantine the malware. Because the ProSight Active Security Monitoring agent is autonomous, endpoint devices remain protected even when they are offline. To learn more about ProSight ASM, refer to remote endpoint monitoring for at-home workers.
- Security Audits can evaluate the exposure of your information system to all types of external and local security attacks for a network that incorporates teleworkers. Progent can deploy remote, automated security analysis software for quickly and economically detecting a wide variety of security gaps that can be found over the Internet. Progent's endpoint security assessment experts, which can be provided by data security experts with top credentials including CISA, ISSAP, and GIAC, can assist you to evaluate your processes and policies and assess your WAN architecture to enable you to implement the highest level of security for your telecommuters.
