Security and Compliance for Teleworkers
At-home workers commonly run their personal computers and work in a physically unsecured environment. This increases their exposure to cyber attacks and requires careful use of security appliances, remote monitoring, and the enforcement of policies that follow best practices. Progent's seasoned roster of certified data security professionals can assist you to plan, implement and manage a compliant security environment that safeguards sensitive data in networks that incorporate remote workers.

  • Firewalls enable you to create a network that can be securely utilized by on-premises users and by teleworkers, mobile users, vendors, clients, and other stakeholders. Next-generation firewall appliances allow you to configure and manage appropriate access rights to different groups of users and to scale your IT network and modify your security profile as your company evolves and as network attacks become increasingly complex. Progent works with both new and older firewall devices from all major manufacturers like Cisco, Palo Alto Networks, WatchGuard, Juniper, SonicWall and Fortinet.

  • Remote Endpoint Monitoring makes it easy to watch over the various computers utilized by teleworkers and either block or spot and respond to the latest cyber attacks like ransomware. With ProSight Active Security Monitoring services, a lightweight software agent is put on every secured endpoint device, watching all activity and utilizing advanced AI technology to detect zero-day attacks at inception. When a cyberattack is spotted, ProSight ASM immediately isolates the targeted endpoint device from the corporate network to quarantine the threat. Because the ProSight Active Security Monitoring agent is autonomous, endpoint devices remain protected even when they are offline.
