Cybersecurity for Teleworkers
Teleworkers commonly use their own computing devices and work in a physically unsecured environment. This worsens their vulnerability to cyber threats and requires judicious deployment of firewalls, remote security monitoring, and the creation of policies based on leading practices. Progent's veteran roster of certified data security professionals can assist your organization to design, implement and administer a compliant security environment that protects critical data in networks that include at-home workers.

  • Firewalls enable you to build a network that can be safely utilized by local users as well as by telecommuters, mobile workers, vendors, clients, and the public. Modern firewall devices permit you to configure and control appropriate permissions to different groups of users and to expand your IT network and adjust your security profile as your company evolves and as network attacks become increasingly sophisticated. Progent supports both new and older firewall appliances from all leading vendors including Cisco, Palo Alto Networks, Check Point, Juniper, SonicWall and Fortinet.

  • Online Endpoint Monitoring makes it possible to track the various computers utilized by remote workers and either block or spot and mitigate modern cyber attacks such as ransomware. With Progent's ProSight Active Security Monitoring (ASM) services, a lightweight software agent is installed on each secured endpoint, monitoring all activity and using state-of-the-art machine learning and full execution context to identify new threats at inception. When a cyberattack is spotted, ProSight ASM immediately isolates the targeted endpoint from the network to quarantine the malware. Because the ProSight Active Security Monitoring software agent is self-contained, endpoints stay secure even when they are disconnected from the Internet. To find out more about ProSight Active Security Monitoring, refer to remote endpoint security monitoring for remote workers.
  • Security Audits can assess the exposure of your network to all types of external and internal security threats for a network that includes at-home workers. Progent can deploy online, automated security inventory scanning for quickly and economically detecting a broad range of security weaknesses that can be found over the Internet. Progent's endpoint security audit consulting services, which can be managed by network security experts with advanced certifications such as CISA, CISSP, and GIAC, can assist you to evaluate your processes and policies and review your network infrastructure to enable you to design top-level protection for your telecommuters.
