Cybersecurity for Telecommuters
Telecommuters commonly use their own equipment and work in an unsecured area. This worsens their exposure to cyber threats and requires careful deployment of firewalls, remote security monitoring, and the enforcement of security policies that follow best practices. Progent's veteran team of certified cybersecurity experts can help your organization to design, implement and administer a compliant security solution that protects vital information in IT networks that include at-home workers.
- Firewalls enable companies to create a network that can be safely utilized by on-premises users and by at-home workers, mobile employees, vendors, customers, and other stakeholders. Next-generation firewall appliances allow you to assign and manage appropriate access rights to various groups of users and to expand your IT network and modify your security profile as your company evolves and as network attacks grow more sophisticated. Progent works with both current and legacy firewall appliances from all major vendors including Cisco, Palo Alto Networks, WatchGuard, Juniper, SonicWall and Fortinet. To learn more about Progent's firewall integration services, see firewall support expertise.
- Online Endpoint Security Monitoring makes it possible to track the disparate devices utilized by an at-home workforce and either block or identify and respond to the latest threats like ransomware. With Progent's ProSight Active Security Monitoring (ASM) services, a small-footprint agent is installed on each protected endpoint device, watching all activity and using advanced AI technology to detect new threats at inception. When a cyberattack is discovered, ProSight ASM immediately isolates the targeted device from the corporate network to contain the malware. Since the ProSight Active Security Monitoring software agent is self-contained, endpoint devices remain protected even when they are not connected to the Internet.

- Security Audits can assess the vulnerability of your network to all types of outside and internal security attacks for a network that incorporates at-home workers. Progent can run remote, automated security analysis software for quickly and affordably uncovering a wide variety of security gaps that can be found over the Internet. Progent's security audit consulting services, which can be provided by security professionals with top certifications such as CISA, CISSP, and GIAC, can assist your company to audit your processes and policies and assess your IT architecture to allow you to design the highest level of security for your teleworkers.
