Security for Teleworkers
At-home workers commonly run their personal equipment and work in an unsecured environment. This increases their exposure to cyber attacks and calls for careful deployment of firewalls, remote security monitoring, and the creation of security policies based on leading practices. Progent's seasoned team of certified cybersecurity professionals can assist your company to design, implement and manage a modern cybersecurity solution that safeguards critical information in networks that incorporate telecommuters.
- Firewalls enable companies to create a network that can be safely accessed by local users and by telecommuters, mobile users, vendors, clients, and the public. Modern firewall devices allow you to configure and manage appropriate access rights to various groups of users and to expand your network and adjust your security as your business evolves and as network attacks grow more sophisticated. Progent works with both new and older security appliances from all major manufacturers like Cisco, Palo Alto Networks, WatchGuard, Juniper, and Fortinet. For more information about Progent's firewall integration expertise, see firewall integration and support expertise.
- Online Endpoint Security Monitoring makes it easy to watch over the disparate computers utilized by teleworkers and either reject or spot and respond to the latest threats such as ransomware. With Progent's ProSight Active Security Monitoring (ASM) services, a lightweight agent is put on each secured endpoint device, watching all activity and utilizing state-of-the-art machine learning and full execution context to identify zero-day threats before they can spread. When an attack is spotted, ProSight ASM immediately disconnects the impacted endpoint device from the corporate network to quarantine the threat. Since the ProSight Active Security Monitoring software agent is self-contained, endpoints stay secure even when they are offline. For details about ProSight Active Security Monitoring, see remote endpoint monitoring for an at-home workforce.
- Security Audits can assess the vulnerability of your information system to all classes of outside and internal security threats for a network that includes at-home workers. Progent can deploy remote, automated security inventory software for rapidly and affordably detecting a broad range of security weaknesses that can be surfaced over the Internet. Progent's endpoint security audit consulting services, which can be managed by data security experts with advanced credentials such as CISM, CISSP, and GIAC, can help your business to evaluate your operations and policies and review your network infrastructure to enable you to design top-level security for your teleworkers.
