Security and Compliance for Telecommuters
Remote workers often run their personal equipment and work in an unsecured environment. This increases their exposure to cyber threats and demands judicious deployment of firewalls, remote security monitoring, and the creation of security policies that follow leading practices. Progent's seasoned roster of certified data security professionals can help your company to design, deploy and administer a modern cybersecurity solution that protects vital data in IT networks that include an at-home workforce.
- Firewalls allow you to build a network that can be securely accessed by on-premises users and by at-home workers, mobile workers, suppliers, clients, and other stakeholders. Next-generation firewall devices permit you to assign and manage appropriate access rights to various classes of users and to scale your IT network and modify your security profile as your company evolves and as cyber threats become more sophisticated. Progent supports both current and older firewall appliances from all leading manufacturers like Cisco, Palo Alto Networks, Check Point, Juniper, SonicWall and Fortinet. For more information about Progent's firewall support services, see firewall configuration and support expertise.
- Online Endpoint Security Monitoring makes it possible to track the various devices utilized by an at-home workforce and either reject or spot and mitigate modern threats like ransomware. With Progent's ProSight Active Security Monitoring (ASM) services, a small-footprint software agent is installed on each secured endpoint, watching all activity and utilizing advanced AI technology to detect new threats at inception. When a cyberattack is spotted, ProSight Active Security Monitoring instantly disconnects the impacted device from the corporate network to quarantine the malware. Because the ProSight ASM agent is self-contained, endpoints stay secure even if they are not connected to the Internet. For details about ProSight ASM, see remote endpoint monitoring for at-home workers.
- Security Audits can assess the vulnerability of your information system to all classes of external and local security attacks for a network that incorporates an at-home workforce. Progent can deploy remote, automated cybersecurity analysis software for quickly and economically uncovering a broad range of security holes that can be found over the Internet. Progent's security audit experts, which can be provided by network security experts with advanced credentials including CISM, ISSAP, and GIAC, can assist your business to audit your processes and governance policies and review your network architecture to allow you to implement the highest level of protection for your telecommuters.
