Security and Compliance for At-Home Workers
Telecommuters commonly run their own computing devices and work in a physically unsecured area. This increases their exposure to cyber threats and requires judicious use of firewalls, remote endpoint monitoring, and the enforcement of policies in compliance with best practices. Progent's seasoned roster of certified data security experts can assist your company to plan, implement and administer a compliant security environment that safeguards vital data in networks that include at-home workers.
- Firewalls allow you to create a network that can be securely accessed by local users as well as by teleworkers, mobile employees, vendors, customers, and other stakeholders. Modern firewall devices permit you to assign and manage different access rights to various classes of users and to scale your network and modify your security profile as your business evolves and as cyber threats become increasingly complex. Progent supports both new and legacy firewall devices from all leading vendors including Cisco, Palo Alto Networks, Check Point, Juniper, SonicWall and Fortinet. For details about Progent's firewall integration expertise, refer to firewall configuration and support expertise.
- Remote Endpoint Security Monitoring makes it easy to watch over the disparate devices utilized by at-home workers and either block or spot and mitigate modern threats such as ransomware. With ProSight Active Security Monitoring (ASM) services, a lightweight software agent is put on each secured endpoint device, monitoring all activity and using advanced AI technology to identify new attacks before they can spread. When an attack is spotted, ProSight Active Security Monitoring immediately disconnects the targeted device from the corporate network to quarantine the malware. Because the ProSight ASM software agent is autonomous, endpoint devices stay protected even if they are not connected to the Internet. To learn more about ProSight ASM, refer to remote endpoint security monitoring for teleworkers.
- Security Audits can assess the vulnerability of your information system to all classes of external and internal security attacks for a network that includes an at-home workforce. Progent can run online, automated cybersecurity inventory scanning for quickly and economically uncovering a broad range of security weaknesses that can be surfaced over the Internet. Progent's security assessment experts, which can be managed by security experts with top credentials including CISA, ISSAP, and GIAC, can help your business to evaluate your procedures and policies and assess your network infrastructure to allow you to implement the highest level of protection for your teleworkers.
