Security and Compliance for Remote Workers
Telecommuters commonly use their own computing devices and work in an unsecured area. This worsens their vulnerability to cyber attacks and requires careful deployment of firewalls, remote monitoring, and the enforcement of policies that adhere to leading practices. Progent's seasoned team of certified data security professionals can help your company to design, implement and administer a compliant security solution that protects sensitive data in networks that include telecommuters.
- Firewalls allow you to build a network that can be securely accessed by local users and by telecommuters, mobile workers, vendors, clients, and other stakeholders. Next-generation firewall devices allow you to assign and manage appropriate permissions to different groups of users and to expand your network and adjust your security as your business evolves and as cyber threats become more complex. Progent works with both current and older firewall appliances from all leading manufacturers like Cisco, Palo Alto Networks, WatchGuard, Juniper, SonicWall and Fortinet. To find out more about Progent's firewall integration services, see firewall integration and support services.
- Online Endpoint Security Monitoring makes it easy to watch over the disparate devices used by telecommuters and either reject or identify and respond to modern cyber attacks such as ransomware. With ProSight Active Security Monitoring (ASM) services, a small-footprint software agent is put on every protected endpoint device, watching all activity and utilizing state-of-the-art machine learning and full execution context to identify new threats on arrival. When a cyberattack is discovered, ProSight ASM instantly disconnects the infected endpoint device from the corporate network to quarantine the malware. Since the ProSight ASM software agent is self-contained, endpoints stay protected even when they are offline. For more information about ProSight ASM, see remote endpoint monitoring for telecommuters.
- Security Audits can evaluate the exposure of your information system to all classes of external and internal security attacks for an environment that incorporates an at-home workforce. Progent can deploy remote, automated cybersecurity inventory software for rapidly and economically detecting a wide variety of security gaps that can be surfaced via the Internet. Progent's endpoint security audit experts, which can be provided by data security professionals with top credentials including CISM, ISSAP, and GIAC, can assist your business to audit your operations and policies and assess your WAN architecture to enable you to design top-level security for your telecommuters.
