Cybersecurity for Telecommuters
Teleworkers commonly run their personal equipment and work in a physically unsecured space. This worsens their exposure to cyber threats and requires careful deployment of security appliances, remote monitoring, and the creation of policies based on best practices. Progent's seasoned roster of certified data security experts can assist your organization to design, implement and manage a modern cybersecurity solution that safeguards sensitive information in IT networks that incorporate teleworkers.
- Firewalls enable you to create a network environment that can be securely utilized by local users and by telecommuters, mobile employees, suppliers, clients, and other stakeholders. Modern firewall appliances permit you to configure and manage appropriate permissions to various groups of users and to expand your IT network and modify your security as your company evolves and as cyber threats grow increasingly sophisticated. Progent works with both new and legacy firewall devices from all major vendors like Cisco, Palo Alto Networks, WatchGuard, Juniper, SonicWall and Fortinet. For details about Progent's firewall support expertise, refer to firewall support services.
- Remote Endpoint Security Monitoring makes it possible to watch over the various devices utilized by at-home workers and either block or identify and mitigate the latest cyber attacks like ransomware. With Progent's ProSight Active Security Monitoring services, a lightweight software agent is put on every secured endpoint, watching all activity and utilizing state-of-the-art machine learning and full execution context to identify new threats on arrival. When a cyberattack is discovered, ProSight Active Security Monitoring immediately isolates the targeted endpoint device from the network to contain the threat. Since the ProSight ASM agent is autonomous, endpoints stay protected even if they are not connected to the Internet. For details about ProSight ASM, refer to remote endpoint security monitoring for an at-home workforce.
- Security Audits can evaluate the exposure of your network to all types of external and local security attacks for a network that incorporates an at-home workforce.
