Cybersecurity for Telecommuters
Remote workers commonly run their own equipment and work in a physically unsecured area. This increases their vulnerability to cyber threats and requires judicious deployment of security appliances, remote endpoint monitoring, and the creation of policies that follow best practices. Progent's veteran roster of certified cybersecurity professionals can assist your company to design, deploy and administer a modern security environment that protects critical information in networks that incorporate at-home workers.
- Firewalls allow you to create a network that can be safely accessed by local users and by telecommuters, mobile employees, suppliers, customers, and other stakeholders. Next-generation firewall devices permit you to assign and manage different permissions to different classes of users and to expand your IT network and adjust your security profile as your business evolves and as network attacks grow increasingly sophisticated. Progent works with both new and legacy security devices from all major vendors like Cisco, Palo Alto Networks, WatchGuard, Juniper, and Fortinet. To find out more about Progent's firewall configuration services, see firewall support expertise.
- Remote Endpoint Monitoring makes it possible to track the various devices used by telecommuters and either block or spot and mitigate modern threats such as ransomware. With ProSight Active Security Monitoring (ASM) services, a small-footprint software agent is installed on every protected endpoint device, monitoring all activity and using advanced machine learning to identify zero-day threats before they can spread. When an attack is discovered, ProSight Active Security Monitoring instantly disconnects the impacted device from the network to contain the threat. Since the ProSight ASM agent is self-contained, endpoints remain secure even when they are offline. To find out more about ProSight Active Security Monitoring, go to remote endpoint security monitoring for remote workers.
- Security Audits can assess the exposure of your network to all types of outside and internal security attacks for an environment that includes telecommuters. Progent can run remote, automated cybersecurity inventory scanning for quickly and economically detecting a wide variety of security weaknesses that can be surfaced over the Internet. Progent's security audit experts, which can be managed by security professionals with top credentials including CISA, CISSP, and GIAC, can help your company to evaluate your workflows and governance policies and assess your network architecture to enable you to implement the highest level of security for your an at-home workforce.
