Security for Remote Workers
Telecommuters often use their personal equipment and work in an unsecured space. This worsens their vulnerability to cyber threats and demands careful use of security appliances, remote endpoint monitoring, and the creation of security policies that follow best practices. Progent's seasoned team of certified data security professionals can help you to plan, deploy and manage a modern cybersecurity environment that guards critical information in networks that incorporate remote workers.
- Firewalls allow companies to create a network that can be securely utilized by local users as well as by telecommuters, mobile workers, vendors, clients, and the public. Modern firewall devices allow you to assign and control appropriate permissions to various groups of users and to expand your IT network and modify your security profile as your company evolves and as network attacks become increasingly sophisticated. Progent supports both current and legacy firewall appliances from all major manufacturers including Cisco, Palo Alto Networks, Check Point, Juniper, SonicWall and Fortinet. For more information about Progent's firewall configuration expertise, refer to firewall configuration and support expertise.
- Remote Endpoint Security Monitoring makes it easy to watch over the various devices utilized by an at-home workforce and either reject or identify and respond to the latest cyber attacks such as ransomware. With ProSight Active Security Monitoring services, a small-footprint agent is installed on each secured endpoint device, watching all activity and using advanced machine learning and full execution context to identify new attacks before they can spread. When an attack is spotted, ProSight ASM instantly disconnects the infected endpoint from the corporate network to quarantine the threat. Since the ProSight ASM software agent is self-contained, endpoints remain protected even when they are offline. For details about ProSight ASM, refer to remote endpoint security monitoring for remote workers.
- Security Audits can assess the vulnerability of your information system to all classes of outside and internal security attacks for an environment that incorporates at-home workers. Progent can run online, automated cybersecurity analysis software for quickly and affordably uncovering a broad range of security holes that can be surfaced over the Internet. Progent's security assessment experts, which can be managed by data security experts with top certifications including CISM, ISSAP, and GIAC, can assist you to audit your processes and governance policies and assess your network architecture to allow you to design the highest level of protection for your at-home workers.
