Security for Remote Workers
At-home workers often run their own computing devices and work in a physically unsecured space. This increases their exposure to cyber threats and demands judicious deployment of firewalls, remote monitoring, and the creation of security policies that adhere to leading practices. Progent's veteran team of certified data security experts can assist you to plan, implement and manage a modern security environment that guards vital information in IT networks that include at-home workers.
- Firewalls enable you to build a network that can be securely accessed by local users and by at-home workers, mobile workers, vendors, clients, and the public. Next-generation firewall devices permit you to configure and control different permissions to different groups of users and to expand your IT network and adjust your security profile as your business evolves and as network attacks become increasingly sophisticated. Progent works with both new and older security appliances from all major vendors like Cisco, Palo Alto Networks, WatchGuard, Juniper, SonicWall and Fortinet. For details about Progent's firewall support expertise, refer to firewall configuration and support services.
- Online Endpoint Monitoring makes it easy to track the disparate computers used by teleworkers and either reject or identify and respond to modern threats like ransomware. With ProSight Active Security Monitoring services, a lightweight agent is installed on each protected endpoint device, watching all activity and using advanced behavioral threat analysis to identify zero-day attacks on arrival. When a cyberattack is discovered, ProSight ASM instantly disconnects the infected endpoint from the corporate network to quarantine the threat. Because the ProSight Active Security Monitoring agent is autonomous, endpoints remain protected even when they are not connected to the Internet. To find out more about ProSight ASM, refer to remote endpoint monitoring for remote workers.
- Security Audits can assess the exposure of your information system to all types of external and local security threats for an environment that incorporates remote workers. Progent can run remote, automated cybersecurity inventory software for rapidly and economically uncovering a broad range of security gaps that can be surfaced over the Internet. Progent's security assessment consulting services, which can be provided by network security professionals with top certifications including CISA, ISSAP, and GIAC, can help you to audit your workflows and policies and review your IT infrastructure to allow you to implement top-level protection for your an at-home workforce.
