Security for Remote Workers
Teleworkers often use their own computers and work in an unsecured space. This worsens their exposure to cyber attacks and demands judicious deployment of firewalls, remote endpoint monitoring, and the creation of policies that adhere to leading practices. Progent's seasoned roster of certified data security professionals can assist your company to design, implement and administer a compliant cybersecurity environment that safeguards sensitive information in networks that include telecommuters.

  • Firewalls enable companies to create a network environment that can be securely utilized by local users and by teleworkers, mobile users, suppliers, clients, and other stakeholders. Next-generation firewall appliances allow you to configure and control appropriate access rights to different classes of users and to expand your IT network and modify your security profile as your company evolves and as network attacks become more sophisticated. Progent supports both new and older security appliances from all leading manufacturers like Cisco, Palo Alto Networks, Check Point, Juniper, SonicWall and Fortinet. For details about Progent's firewall configuration expertise, see firewall configuration and support expertise.
  • Online Endpoint Monitoring makes it possible to watch over the various computers used by at-home workers and either block or spot and mitigate modern threats such as ransomware. With Progent's ProSight Active Security Monitoring services, a lightweight agent is installed on each secured endpoint, monitoring all activity and using state-of-the-art behavioral threat analysis to detect zero-day threats before they can spread. When an attack is discovered, ProSight ASM immediately isolates the infected endpoint device from the corporate network to quarantine the malware. Since the ProSight ASM software agent is autonomous, endpoint devices remain protected even when they are offline.

  • Security Audits can evaluate the exposure of your information system to all classes of outside and internal security threats for an environment that includes an at-home workforce. Progent can deploy remote, automated cybersecurity analysis scanning for rapidly and economically uncovering a broad range of security gaps that can be found via the Internet. Progent's security assessment consulting services, which can be provided by network security experts with top credentials such as CISM, ISSAP, and GIAC, can help your company to evaluate your procedures and policies and review your IT architecture to allow you to design top-level security for your remote workers.
