Security and Compliance for At-Home Workers
At-home workers often run their own computers and work in a physically unsecured area. This increases their vulnerability to cyber threats and demands careful deployment of security appliances, remote security monitoring, and the enforcement of policies in compliance with best practices. Progent's veteran team of certified cybersecurity professionals can help your organization to plan, implement and administer a compliant cybersecurity environment that safeguards sensitive information in IT networks that incorporate remote workers.
- Firewalls allow companies to create a network environment that can be safely utilized by on-premises users as well as by an at-home workforce, mobile employees, vendors, clients, and other stakeholders. Modern firewall appliances permit you to assign and control different access rights to various groups of users and to scale your network and modify your security profile as your company evolves and as network attacks grow more sophisticated. Progent works with both current and legacy firewall devices from all leading manufacturers including Cisco, Palo Alto Networks, Check Point, Juniper, and Fortinet. To find out more about Progent's firewall support services, see firewall support expertise.
- Remote Endpoint Monitoring makes it possible to watch over the various devices used by teleworkers and either reject or identify and mitigate the latest cyber attacks like ransomware. With ProSight Active Security Monitoring (ASM) services, a small-footprint agent is installed on each secured endpoint device, watching all activity and using advanced machine learning to identify new threats before they can spread. When an attack is discovered, ProSight ASM instantly isolates the targeted device from the corporate network to quarantine the threat. Because the ProSight ASM agent is autonomous, endpoint devices remain secure even when they are disconnected from the Internet. For details about ProSight ASM, refer to remote endpoint security monitoring for teleworkers.
- Security Audits can assess the exposure of your information system to all classes of external and internal security threats for an environment that incorporates an at-home workforce. Progent can deploy online, automated cybersecurity inventory software for quickly and affordably uncovering a wide variety of security holes that can be surfaced via the Internet. Progent's security audit consulting services, which can be managed by network security professionals with advanced credentials such as CISA, CISSP, and GIAC, can help you to evaluate your operations and governance policies and assess your IT infrastructure to allow you to implement the highest level of security for your telecommuters.
