Cybersecurity for At-Home Workers
Teleworkers commonly run their own equipment and work in an unsecured area. This increases their exposure to cyber threats and calls for judicious use of firewalls, remote security monitoring, and the enforcement of security policies that adhere to leading practices. Progent's seasoned team of certified cybersecurity professionals can assist your business to plan, deploy and manage a modern cybersecurity environment that protects sensitive information in IT networks that incorporate at-home workers.
- Firewalls allow companies to create a network environment that can be safely accessed by on-premises users as well as by telecommuters, mobile employees, suppliers, customers, and other stakeholders. Next-generation firewall appliances permit you to configure and manage different access rights to different groups of users and to scale your IT network and adjust your security profile as your business evolves and as cyber threats become increasingly complex. Progent supports both current and legacy security appliances from all major manufacturers including Cisco, Palo Alto Networks, Check Point, Juniper, SonicWall and Fortinet.

- Remote Endpoint Security Monitoring makes it easy to watch over the disparate computers utilized by remote workers and either block or spot and respond to modern cyber attacks like ransomware. With ProSight Active Security Monitoring (ASM) services, a small-footprint agent is put on each secured endpoint, watching all activity and using state-of-the-art behavioral threat analysis to detect zero-day threats before they can spread. When a cyberattack is spotted, ProSight Active Security Monitoring instantly disconnects the targeted endpoint from the corporate network to contain the threat. Since the ProSight Active Security Monitoring software agent is self-contained, endpoints remain secure even when they are not connected to the Internet.

- Security Audits can evaluate the exposure of your information system to all classes of outside and local security threats for an environment that includes an at-home workforce. Progent can run online, automated security inventory software for quickly and affordably detecting a broad range of security weaknesses that can be surfaced over the Internet. Progent's security assessment experts, which can be provided by security professionals with top certifications including CISM, CISSP, and GIAC, can assist your business to audit your procedures and governance policies and assess your WAN architecture to allow you to design top-level security for your teleworkers.
