Cybersecurity for At-Home Workers
At-home workers often use their own computers and work in a physically unsecured environment. This increases their exposure to cyber threats and calls for careful deployment of security appliances, remote security monitoring, and the enforcement of security policies based on best practices. Progent's seasoned team of certified data security experts can help your organization to design, deploy and manage a compliant security environment that safeguards vital data in networks that include at-home workers.
- Firewalls allow you to build a network that can be safely accessed by local users as well as by teleworkers, mobile employees, suppliers, customers, and the public. Modern firewall appliances permit you to assign and control appropriate permissions to various groups of users and to expand your network and adjust your security as your company evolves and as cyber threats grow more complex. Progent works with both current and legacy firewall appliances from all major manufacturers including Cisco, Palo Alto Networks, Check Point, Juniper, SonicWall and Fortinet. For details about Progent's firewall support services, see firewall integration and support expertise.
- Online Endpoint Monitoring makes it possible to watch over the various devices used by telecommuters and either reject or identify and mitigate the latest cyber attacks like ransomware. With ProSight Active Security Monitoring (ASM) services, a small-footprint software agent is put on every protected endpoint device, watching all activity and utilizing advanced AI technology to detect new threats at inception. When a cyberattack is discovered, ProSight ASM immediately disconnects the impacted endpoint device from the network to quarantine the threat. Because the ProSight Active Security Monitoring agent is self-contained, endpoint devices remain protected even when they are offline. To find out more about ProSight ASM, refer to remote endpoint security monitoring for at-home workers.
- Security Audits can evaluate the vulnerability of your information system to all types of outside and local security attacks for an environment that includes teleworkers. Progent can run online, automated cybersecurity inventory software for rapidly and economically uncovering a broad range of security holes that can be found via the Internet. Progent's endpoint security assessment experts, which can be managed by data security professionals with advanced credentials such as CISA, CISSP, and GIAC, can assist your company to audit your operations and policies and review your IT infrastructure to enable you to design top-level security for your teleworkers.
