Security for At-Home Workers
Remote workers commonly use their personal computers and work in an unsecured environment. This increases their exposure to cyber threats and calls for judicious deployment of security appliances, remote endpoint monitoring, and the creation of security policies that adhere to leading practices. Progent's seasoned team of certified cybersecurity experts can assist you to plan, deploy and administer a modern security solution that guards vital information in IT networks that incorporate telecommuters.
- Firewalls enable you to create a network that can be securely utilized by on-premises users as well as by teleworkers, mobile employees, vendors, clients, and other stakeholders. Next-generation firewall devices permit you to assign and manage appropriate access rights to various classes of users and to expand your IT network and adjust your security as your business evolves and as network attacks grow increasingly sophisticated. Progent supports both current and older security appliances from all leading manufacturers like Cisco, Palo Alto Networks, WatchGuard, Juniper, SonicWall and Fortinet. For details about Progent's firewall integration expertise, see firewall configuration and support expertise.
- Online Endpoint Monitoring makes it easy to watch over the disparate devices utilized by at-home workers and either block or identify and respond to modern cyber attacks such as ransomware. With ProSight Active Security Monitoring services, a lightweight software agent is put on every protected endpoint device, watching all activity and utilizing advanced behavioral threat analysis to identify new attacks at inception. When a cyberattack is spotted, ProSight Active Security Monitoring instantly isolates the infected endpoint device from the network to contain the malware. Since the ProSight ASM software agent is autonomous, endpoints remain secure even if they are offline. For more information about ProSight Active Security Monitoring, see remote endpoint monitoring for an at-home workforce.
- Security Audits can evaluate the vulnerability of your information system to all types of external and internal security threats for an environment that includes telecommuters. Progent can run online, automated security inventory software for quickly and economically uncovering a broad range of security gaps that can be surfaced via the Internet.
