Security and Compliance for Telecommuters
At-home workers often run their own computers and work in a physically unsecured space. This increases their vulnerability to cyber threats and requires judicious deployment of security appliances, remote monitoring, and the enforcement of security policies in compliance with best practices. Progent's veteran roster of certified data security professionals can assist your organization to design, implement and manage a compliant security solution that protects sensitive information in IT networks that incorporate at-home workers.
- Firewalls enable you to create a network that can be securely accessed by local users and by an at-home workforce, mobile users, suppliers, customers, and the public. Next-generation firewall devices allow you to configure and manage appropriate permissions to different groups of users and to scale your network and adjust your security profile as your business evolves and as network attacks become increasingly sophisticated. Progent supports both new and legacy firewall appliances from all major vendors including Cisco, Palo Alto Networks, Check Point, Juniper, SonicWall and Fortinet. For more information about Progent's firewall integration services, go to firewall configuration and support services.
- Online Endpoint Security Monitoring makes it easy to watch over the various devices used by at-home workers and either reject or identify and respond to modern cyber attacks like ransomware. With Progent's ProSight Active Security Monitoring services, a lightweight software agent is put on every protected endpoint, watching all activity and utilizing state-of-the-art behavioral threat analysis to detect new attacks on arrival. When an attack is spotted, ProSight Active Security Monitoring immediately isolates the infected endpoint device from the corporate network to contain the malware. Because the ProSight Active Security Monitoring agent is autonomous, endpoints remain protected even if they are not connected to the Internet. For details about ProSight Active Security Monitoring, refer to remote endpoint security monitoring for an at-home workforce.
- Security Audits can assess the vulnerability of your information system to all classes of external and internal security attacks for an environment that includes at-home workers. Progent can run remote, automated security inventory scanning for rapidly and affordably detecting a broad range of security weaknesses that can be found over the Internet. Progent's security audit consulting services, which can be provided by data security experts with top certifications such as CISA, ISSAP, and GIAC, can help you to audit your workflows and policies and assess your IT infrastructure to allow you to implement top-level security for your teleworkers.
