Security and Compliance for Telecommuters
Remote workers often use their own computers and work in an unsecured space. This increases their vulnerability to cyber attacks and demands judicious use of security appliances, remote monitoring, and the enforcement of security policies based on best practices. Progent's veteran team of certified data security professionals can help your company to design, implement and manage a compliant cybersecurity solution that safeguards sensitive information in networks that incorporate teleworkers.

  • Firewalls enable you to build a network environment that can be safely utilized by local users as well as by teleworkers, mobile workers, vendors, clients, and the public. Modern firewall appliances allow you to assign and control different permissions to different groups of users and to scale your IT network and modify your security profile as your business evolves and as network attacks become more sophisticated. Progent supports both new and legacy firewall devices from all major manufacturers including Cisco, Palo Alto Networks, Check Point, Juniper, SonicWall and Fortinet. For details about Progent's firewall configuration services, see firewall configuration and support expertise.
  • Remote Endpoint Monitoring makes it possible to watch over the various devices used by remote workers and either reject or identify and respond to the latest cyber attacks like ransomware. With Progent's ProSight Active Security Monitoring services, a small-footprint software agent is installed on every secured endpoint, monitoring all activity and using state-of-the-art machine learning to detect zero-day attacks on arrival. When an attack is spotted, ProSight Active Security Monitoring immediately disconnects the impacted endpoint device from the network to contain the threat. Since the ProSight Active Security Monitoring software agent is autonomous, endpoint devices stay secure even if they are disconnected from the Internet.

  • Security Audits can assess the vulnerability of your network to all types of outside and local security attacks for an environment that incorporates at-home workers. Progent can run online, automated cybersecurity inventory scanning for quickly and affordably uncovering a wide variety of security holes that can be surfaced over the Internet. Progent's security assessment consulting services, which can be managed by data security experts with top certifications such as CISM, ISSAP, and GIAC, can help you to evaluate your operations and governance policies and assess your WAN infrastructure to enable you to implement top-level protection for your teleworkers.
