Cybersecurity for Telecommuters
Teleworkers commonly use their own equipment and work in a physically unsecured space. This increases their exposure to cyber attacks and demands careful use of security appliances, remote monitoring, and the enforcement of policies that adhere to leading practices. Progent's seasoned team of certified cybersecurity experts can assist your business to design, implement and manage a compliant security environment that protects vital information in networks that incorporate teleworkers.
- Firewalls enable companies to create a network that can be securely utilized by on-premises users as well as by an at-home workforce, mobile users, vendors, clients, and other stakeholders. Next-generation firewall appliances permit you to assign and manage appropriate permissions to different classes of users and to scale your IT network and adjust your security profile as your company evolves and as cyber threats become increasingly complex. Progent works with both current and older 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, refer to firewall configuration and support expertise.
- Online Endpoint Security Monitoring makes it possible to track the disparate computers utilized by teleworkers and either reject or spot and respond to the latest cyber attacks like ransomware. With Progent's ProSight Active Security Monitoring services, a small-footprint software agent is installed on each protected endpoint device, watching all activity and utilizing state-of-the-art AI technology to detect zero-day attacks before they can spread. When a cyberattack is discovered, ProSight ASM instantly isolates the targeted endpoint from the network to quarantine the malware. Because the ProSight ASM software agent is self-contained, endpoint devices stay protected even when they are not connected to the Internet. 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 classes of external and internal security threats for an environment that includes at-home workers. Progent can deploy online, automated security inventory software for quickly and economically detecting a broad range of security holes that can be found via the Internet. Progent's endpoint security audit experts, which can be managed by network security professionals with advanced credentials including CISA, CISSP, and GIAC, can assist your company to audit your operations and policies and assess your IT infrastructure to allow you to design the highest level of security for your teleworkers.
