Security and Compliance for Teleworkers
Telecommuters often run their own computers and work in an unsecured area. This increases their vulnerability to cyber threats and requires careful use of firewalls, remote security monitoring, and the enforcement of policies that adhere to best practices. Progent's veteran team of certified data security professionals can help you to design, deploy and manage a modern cybersecurity environment that protects critical information in IT networks that include telecommuters.
- Firewalls allow you to create a network that can be safely accessed by local users and by an at-home workforce, mobile workers, suppliers, clients, and the public. Next-generation firewall devices allow you to configure and manage appropriate permissions to different classes of users and to expand your network and modify your security profile as your company evolves and as network attacks grow increasingly complex. Progent works with both new and legacy security appliances from all leading vendors including Cisco, Palo Alto Networks, Check Point, Juniper, and Fortinet. For details about Progent's firewall support services, see firewall configuration and support services.
- Online Endpoint Security Monitoring makes it possible to track the disparate computers used by an at-home workforce and either block or spot and mitigate modern threats such as ransomware. With ProSight Active Security Monitoring (ASM) services, a lightweight agent is installed on each secured endpoint, monitoring all activity and using advanced behavioral threat analysis to identify new threats at inception. When an attack is spotted, ProSight ASM instantly isolates the targeted device from the corporate network to contain the threat. Because the ProSight Active Security Monitoring agent is autonomous, endpoints remain protected even when they are disconnected from the Internet. For details about ProSight Active Security Monitoring, refer to remote endpoint monitoring for remote workers.
- Security Audits can assess the exposure of your information system to all classes of external and local security threats for an environment that incorporates teleworkers. Progent can deploy remote, automated security inventory scanning for rapidly and affordably uncovering a broad range of security weaknesses that can be found via the Internet. Progent's security audit experts, which can be provided by data security professionals with top certifications such as CISM, ISSAP, and GIAC, can assist you to evaluate your processes and policies and review your network infrastructure to enable you to implement the highest level of security for your at-home workers.
