Cybersecurity for Telecommuters
Remote workers often run their own computers and work in a physically unsecured space. This increases their vulnerability to cyber attacks and demands judicious deployment of firewalls, remote monitoring, and the enforcement of security policies that adhere to best practices. Progent's seasoned team of certified cybersecurity professionals can assist you to design, deploy and manage a modern cybersecurity solution that guards vital data in networks that incorporate at-home workers.

  • Firewalls enable companies to create a network environment that can be securely utilized by on-premises users as well as by teleworkers, mobile employees, suppliers, clients, and the public. Modern firewall appliances allow you to assign and manage different permissions to various groups of users and to scale your IT network and adjust your security as your company evolves and as network attacks become increasingly complex. Progent supports both new and older firewall devices from all leading manufacturers like Cisco, Palo Alto Networks, WatchGuard, Juniper, SonicWall and Fortinet.

  • Remote Endpoint Security Monitoring makes it possible to watch over the disparate devices used by remote workers and either block or spot and mitigate modern cyber attacks such as ransomware. With Progent's ProSight Active Security Monitoring (ASM) services, a small-footprint agent is put on every secured endpoint device, watching all activity and using advanced machine learning to identify new threats before they can spread. When an attack is spotted, ProSight ASM instantly isolates the impacted endpoint from the corporate network to contain the threat. Because the ProSight Active Security Monitoring software agent is self-contained, endpoints stay secure even if they are disconnected from the Internet.

  • Security Audits can assess the vulnerability of your information system to all types of external and local security attacks for a network that includes at-home workers. Progent can deploy online, automated cybersecurity inventory scanning for rapidly and economically detecting a wide variety of security weaknesses that can be surfaced via the Internet. Progent's endpoint security audit experts, which can be provided by data security professionals with advanced certifications such as CISA, CISSP, and GIAC, can help your company to evaluate your operations and governance policies and assess your network architecture to enable you to implement top-level protection for your an at-home workforce.
