Security and Compliance for Remote Workers
Remote workers commonly use their personal equipment and work in an unsecured space. This increases their vulnerability to cyber threats and demands judicious use of security appliances, remote security monitoring, and the creation of security policies that adhere to best practices. Progent's veteran roster of certified cybersecurity experts can assist your business to plan, implement and manage a compliant security solution that protects critical data in IT networks that incorporate an at-home workforce.

  • Firewalls allow you to create a network environment that can be safely accessed by on-premises users and by an at-home workforce, mobile users, vendors, clients, and the public. Next-generation firewall devices allow you to assign and manage appropriate permissions to various groups of users and to expand your IT network and adjust your security profile as your business evolves and as network attacks become increasingly sophisticated. Progent works with both new and legacy security appliances from all major vendors like Cisco, Palo Alto Networks, Check Point, Juniper, SonicWall and Fortinet. For details about Progent's firewall integration expertise, see firewall support expertise.
  • Online Endpoint Security Monitoring makes it easy to track the disparate devices utilized by remote workers and either reject or identify and respond to the latest cyber attacks like ransomware. With Progent's ProSight Active Security Monitoring services, a lightweight agent is put on every secured endpoint device, monitoring all activity and using advanced behavioral threat analysis to identify new attacks at inception. When an attack is discovered, ProSight ASM immediately isolates the infected device from the network to contain the threat. Because the ProSight ASM software agent is self-contained, endpoint devices remain secure even if they are disconnected from the Internet.
