Security and Compliance for Teleworkers
Telecommuters often run their personal equipment and work in an unsecured space. This worsens their exposure to cyber attacks and calls for judicious use of firewalls, remote monitoring, and the creation of policies based on leading practices. Progent's veteran roster of certified data security experts can assist your business to design, deploy and manage a modern security environment that guards vital information in IT networks that incorporate remote workers.
- Firewalls allow you to create a network environment that can be safely accessed by local users as well as by at-home workers, mobile employees, vendors, customers, and the public. Next-generation firewall devices allow you to assign and manage different access rights to various classes of users and to scale your IT network and modify your security profile as your business evolves and as cyber threats become more sophisticated. Progent works with both new and older firewall appliances from all major manufacturers including Cisco, Palo Alto Networks, WatchGuard, Juniper, SonicWall and Fortinet.

- Online Endpoint Security Monitoring makes it easy to track the disparate computers utilized by remote workers and either reject or identify and mitigate modern cyber attacks like ransomware. With ProSight Active Security Monitoring (ASM) services, a small-footprint agent is installed on every protected endpoint, monitoring all activity and utilizing state-of-the-art machine learning to identify zero-day threats on arrival. When a cyberattack is discovered, ProSight ASM immediately disconnects the infected device from the corporate network to quarantine the threat. Since the ProSight ASM software agent is self-contained, endpoints stay protected even if they are not connected to the Internet. To learn more about ProSight Active Security Monitoring, see remote endpoint security monitoring for an at-home workforce.
- Security Audits can assess the exposure of your information system to all classes of external and local security threats for a network that includes at-home workers. Progent can run remote, automated cybersecurity analysis scanning for rapidly and economically uncovering a broad range of security gaps that can be found over the Internet. Progent's endpoint security audit consulting services, which can be managed by network security professionals with advanced certifications including CISM, CISSP, and GIAC, can assist you to audit your workflows and policies and review your IT architecture to enable you to design top-level security for your remote workers.
