Security and Compliance for Remote Workers
Teleworkers often use their own equipment and work in a physically unsecured environment. This worsens their exposure to cyber attacks and requires careful use of security appliances, remote security monitoring, and the enforcement of policies in compliance with best practices. Progent's seasoned roster of certified data security experts can help you to design, deploy and administer a compliant cybersecurity environment that safeguards vital information in IT networks that include teleworkers.
- Firewalls allow you to build a network that can be securely accessed by local users and by at-home workers, mobile users, vendors, clients, and other stakeholders. Modern firewall devices allow you to configure and control different permissions to various classes of users and to expand your network and modify your security profile as your business evolves and as cyber threats become more sophisticated. Progent works with both new and older firewall appliances from all major manufacturers including Cisco, Palo Alto Networks, Check Point, Juniper, and Fortinet. For more information about Progent's firewall support expertise, refer to firewall support expertise.
- Online Endpoint Monitoring makes it easy to track the various devices used by telecommuters and either reject or spot and respond to modern cyber attacks like ransomware. With ProSight Active Security Monitoring (ASM) services, a small-footprint software agent is put on every secured endpoint device, watching all activity and using advanced AI technology to detect zero-day threats before they can spread. When a cyberattack is spotted, ProSight Active Security Monitoring instantly isolates the impacted device from the corporate network to contain the threat. Since the ProSight ASM software agent is self-contained, endpoints stay secure even if they are not connected to the Internet. To find out more about ProSight ASM, go to remote endpoint monitoring for remote workers.
- Security Audits can evaluate the exposure of your network to all types of external and internal security threats for an environment that incorporates an at-home workforce. Progent can deploy remote, automated security analysis scanning for rapidly and affordably uncovering a broad range of security weaknesses that can be found over the Internet. Progent's endpoint security audit experts, which can be managed by security experts with advanced credentials such as CISA, ISSAP, and GIAC, can help your company to evaluate your processes and governance policies and review your WAN architecture to allow you to implement top-level security for your telecommuters.
