Progent's ProSight Enhanced Security Protection (ESP) services offer ultra-affordable multi-layer protection for physical and virtual servers, desktops, mobile devices, and Exchange email. ProSight ESP uses adaptive security and advanced machine learning for continuously monitoring and responding to security threats from all attack vectors. ProSight ESP's solution delivers firewall protection, intrusion alerts, device control, and web filtering via cutting-edge prevention, detection, investigation, and response tools incorporated within a single agent managed from a single web console.
The streamlined architecture of ProSight ESP, designed from the ground up for hybrid cloud and virtualized environments, significantly
reduces the resource overhead and performance degradation common to alternative anti-malware products. This architecture also cuts equipment costs by improving virtual machine consolidation. ProSight ESP provides these benefits while at the same time delivering top-of-the-line protection against sophisticated threats like ransomware and file-less attacks.
ProSight ESP is a managed security service offered at a low monthly subscription fee with a simple per-system licensing model that covers any server or endpoint, physical or virtual, and that can be scaled to any size. Installation, troubleshooting and other incidental professional services are not included with the subscription. Operating systems supported include Windows, Linux, macOS, Apple iOS and Android. A single agent handles any combination of virtualization platforms, cloud providers, operating systems and physical devices. Centralized scanning allows you to distribute anti-malware compute resources across multiple security servers to maximize protection and performance.
Progent's security and virtualization experts can help you plan and implement a cost-effective deployment of ProSight ESP that makes sense for your company and that helps you demonstrate compliance with government and industry data security requirements. Progent will help you define and implement security policies that ProSight ESP will enforce, and Progent will monitor your network and respond to alerts that require immediate attention. Progent can also help you set up and test backup/disaster recovery processes such as ProSight Data Protection Services so you can recover quickly from a destructive security attack such as ransomware.

Endpoint Security Services
Endpoints protected by ProSight ESP include Windows, Linux, and macOS servers, workstations, and notebooks as well as Apple iOS and Android smartphones and tablets. Windows-powered systems are provided enhanced protection via a two-way firewall, intrusion detection, web access control and filtering, data leakage protection, plus application and device control. Minimal system overhead improves performance compared to competing security platforms, and seamless integration with Microsoft Active Directory simplifies the process of protecting unmanaged desktops and servers. Advanced heuristics use behavior analysis to detect zero-day threats in real time, blocking attacks that easily evade traditional signature-based security products.
ProSight ESP's cloud-based Control Center provides a single console for deploying, enforcing and managing security policies for all your endpoints of all types in all locations.
A web-based Control Center lets you manage security policies, run remote tasks, and create reports
Security Services for Virtualized Environments
ProSight ESP offers comprehensive protection for virtualized datacenters and uses advanced multi-layered caching technology to deliver high performance. Low-footprint security services improve server consolidation by as much as 30% compared to older-generation AV platforms by reducing memory and storage requirements and minimizing CPU and I/O activity. Virtual machines running Microsoft Windows and major Linux distributions are protected on most virtualization platforms including Microsoft Hyper-V, VMware, Citrix, Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization with KVM, and Oracle. All virtual machines are protected against malware through file system, memory, process and registry scanning.
ProSight ESP's failover architecture for virtual security appliances eliminates single points of failure, ensuring high availability and consistent performance. Because VMs are protected by Security Servers, they need no local anti-malware scanning engines and definitions and are immune to AV storms.
In VMware environments, ProSight ESP takes advantage of NSX technology supporting the Software-Defined Data Center and integrates seamlessly with unlimited instances of VMware vCenter. This permits security management policy based on objects like resource pools, folders and distributed networking.
ProSight ESP offers comprehensive, unified protection for virtualized datacenters
Security Services for Exchange
ProSight ESP integrates tightly with Microsoft Exchange Server to protect against threats like malware, spam and phishing. You can also filter emails that have attachments or content that do not comply with your company's security policies. ProSight ESP's web-based Control Center lets you create user groups so you can define different scanning and filtering policies for different categories of users such as sales vs. IT management. Among ProSight ESP's long list of configurable settings for Exchange is a domain IP check feature that can prevent spammers from spoofing the sender's email address and making an email appear as though it were from a trusted sender. You can also control options such as quarantine duration, whitelisting and blacklisting, filtering rules and rule prioritization, replacement text for scanned emails, max size of email attachment and content body, exclusions from filtering, and scan scheduling. ProSight ESP uses Microsoft's Exchange Web Services (EWS) to allow scanning the Exchange mailbox and public folder databases.
