Security and Compliance for Telecommuters
Teleworkers commonly run their personal computing devices and work in an unsecured environment. This increases their vulnerability to cyber threats and calls for careful use of firewalls, remote monitoring, and the enforcement of policies that follow best practices. Progent's seasoned team of certified data security professionals can help your company to plan, deploy and manage a modern security solution that guards sensitive information in networks that include teleworkers.
- Firewalls allow you to build a network that can be safely utilized by local users and by telecommuters, mobile workers, vendors, clients, and other stakeholders. Modern firewall appliances permit you to configure and control appropriate access rights to different groups of users and to scale your network and modify your security as your business evolves and as network attacks become more complex. Progent supports both current and older firewall appliances from all major vendors like Cisco, Palo Alto Networks, WatchGuard, Juniper, SonicWall and Fortinet.

- Remote Endpoint Security Monitoring makes it easy to track the various devices used by teleworkers and either block or spot and respond to the latest cyber attacks such as ransomware. With Progent's ProSight Active Security Monitoring services, a small-footprint agent is put on each protected endpoint device, monitoring all activity and utilizing advanced machine learning and full execution context to detect new threats at inception. When an attack is spotted, ProSight Active Security Monitoring immediately isolates the infected endpoint device from the network to quarantine the malware. Since the ProSight ASM agent is self-contained, endpoints stay protected even when they are disconnected from the Internet.

- Security Audits can evaluate the exposure of your network to all types of external and local security threats for a network that incorporates at-home workers. Progent can run online, automated cybersecurity analysis software for quickly and affordably uncovering a wide variety of security weaknesses that can be surfaced over the Internet. Progent's endpoint security audit experts, which can be managed by data security professionals with advanced certifications including CISA, CISSP, and GIAC, can help you to audit your processes and policies and assess your network infrastructure to enable you to implement the highest level of protection for your at-home workers.
