Security for Telecommuters
Telecommuters often use their personal equipment and work in an unsecured environment. This increases their exposure to cyber attacks and calls for careful use of security appliances, remote endpoint monitoring, and the enforcement of policies based on leading practices. Progent's veteran team of certified cybersecurity professionals can help your company to design, implement and manage a modern security solution that guards sensitive information in networks that include an at-home workforce.
- Firewalls allow you to create a network that can be securely utilized by local users as well as by teleworkers, mobile employees, suppliers, clients, and other stakeholders. Modern firewall devices allow you to assign and control appropriate access rights to different classes of users and to scale your IT network and adjust your security profile as your business evolves and as network attacks grow increasingly sophisticated. Progent works with both new and older firewall devices from all major vendors including Cisco, Palo Alto Networks, Check Point, Juniper, and Fortinet.

- Remote Endpoint Monitoring makes it easy to watch over the various devices utilized by telecommuters and either reject or identify and mitigate the latest cyber attacks such as ransomware. With Progent's ProSight Active Security Monitoring (ASM) services, a lightweight software agent is put on each protected endpoint device, monitoring all activity and using state-of-the-art machine learning to identify new attacks on arrival. When a cyberattack is discovered, ProSight ASM immediately disconnects the targeted endpoint from the network to contain the malware. Because the ProSight Active Security Monitoring software agent is autonomous, endpoint devices stay protected even if they are offline. To learn more about ProSight ASM, refer to remote endpoint security monitoring for remote workers.
- Security Audits can evaluate the vulnerability of your network to all types of external and internal security threats for an environment that includes telecommuters. Progent can deploy remote, automated security analysis software for rapidly and economically uncovering a wide variety of security gaps that can be found via the Internet. Progent's security audit consulting services, which can be provided by data security professionals with advanced certifications such as CISA, ISSAP, and GIAC, can help you to evaluate your procedures and governance policies and assess your network infrastructure to allow you to implement top-level protection for your remote workers.
