Security and Compliance for Remote Workers
Telecommuters often run their personal computing devices and work in a physically unsecured space. This increases their exposure to cyber threats and calls for careful use of security appliances, remote endpoint monitoring, and the creation of policies based on best practices. Progent's veteran team of certified data security professionals can help your organization to design, deploy and administer a compliant security environment that safeguards critical data in networks that include at-home workers.
- Firewalls allow you to create a network environment that can be safely accessed by local users as well as by an at-home workforce, mobile workers, suppliers, customers, and other stakeholders. Next-generation firewall appliances allow you to assign and control appropriate access rights to different groups of users and to expand your network and adjust your security profile as your company evolves and as network attacks become more complex. Progent supports both new and older firewall appliances from all leading manufacturers like Cisco, Palo Alto Networks, WatchGuard, Juniper, and Fortinet. For details about Progent's firewall configuration expertise, go to firewall support services.
- Online Endpoint Monitoring makes it easy to track the various devices used by telecommuters and either reject or identify and respond to the latest cyber attacks such as ransomware. With ProSight Active Security Monitoring services, a small-footprint software agent is put on each protected endpoint device, watching all activity and utilizing advanced machine learning to detect zero-day threats on arrival. When an attack is discovered, ProSight Active Security Monitoring immediately disconnects the impacted endpoint device from the corporate network to quarantine the threat. Since the ProSight ASM software agent is autonomous, endpoint devices remain protected even if they are disconnected from the Internet. To learn more about ProSight ASM, refer to remote endpoint security monitoring for an at-home workforce.
- Security Audits can evaluate the exposure of your network to all classes of external and local security threats for an environment that incorporates remote workers. Progent can run remote, automated cybersecurity analysis software for quickly and economically detecting a wide variety of security holes that can be surfaced via the Internet. Progent's security audit consulting services, which can be managed by data security experts with advanced certifications such as CISA, ISSAP, and GIAC, can help you to evaluate your workflows and policies and assess your WAN architecture to allow you to implement the highest level of security for your telecommuters.
