Security for Remote Workers
Teleworkers often run their own computing devices and work in an unsecured area. This worsens their exposure to cyber attacks and demands careful deployment of security appliances, remote monitoring, and the enforcement of security policies in compliance with leading practices. Progent's veteran team of certified data security experts can assist your organization to design, deploy and administer a compliant security solution that protects sensitive data in IT networks that incorporate remote workers.
- Firewalls allow you to create a network environment that can be securely accessed by local users as well as by telecommuters, mobile employees, suppliers, customers, and the public. Modern firewall appliances allow you to assign and manage appropriate access rights to different classes of users and to expand your network and adjust your security as your company evolves and as cyber threats become more complex. Progent works with both current and legacy security appliances from all major manufacturers like Cisco, Palo Alto Networks, WatchGuard, Juniper, and Fortinet. For more information about Progent's firewall configuration services, refer to firewall configuration and support expertise.
- Remote Endpoint Monitoring makes it easy to track the various devices utilized by remote workers 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 software agent is put on each secured endpoint, watching all activity and utilizing advanced behavioral threat analysis to identify zero-day threats at inception. When an attack is spotted, ProSight Active Security Monitoring immediately disconnects the infected endpoint from the network to quarantine the threat. Because the ProSight ASM software agent is autonomous, endpoint devices remain protected even if they are not connected to the Internet. To learn more about ProSight ASM, refer to remote endpoint security monitoring for at-home workers.
- Security Audits can evaluate the vulnerability of your information system to all classes of outside and local security threats for an environment that includes telecommuters. Progent can deploy online, automated security inventory software for quickly and affordably detecting a broad range of security gaps that can be found via the Internet. Progent's endpoint security assessment consulting services, which can be managed by network security professionals with top credentials including CISM, ISSAP, and GIAC, can help you to evaluate your processes and policies and review your IT architecture to allow you to design top-level protection for your an at-home workforce.
