Security for Remote Workers
Telecommuters commonly run their personal computers and work in a physically unsecured environment. This increases their vulnerability to cyber attacks and requires judicious deployment of security appliances, remote monitoring, and the enforcement of policies that adhere to best practices. Progent's seasoned roster of certified cybersecurity experts can assist your business to plan, deploy and administer a modern security solution that protects critical data in networks that incorporate remote workers.
- Firewalls allow you to build a network environment that can be securely accessed by local users as well as by telecommuters, mobile workers, suppliers, customers, and the public. Next-generation firewall devices permit you to assign and manage appropriate access rights to various groups of users and to expand your network and adjust your security as your business evolves and as cyber threats grow increasingly complex. Progent works with both new and older security devices from all leading manufacturers including Cisco, Palo Alto Networks, Check Point, Juniper, and Fortinet.

- Online Endpoint Monitoring makes it possible to track the disparate computers utilized by remote workers and either block or spot and respond to the latest cyber attacks like ransomware. With Progent's ProSight Active Security Monitoring services, a small-footprint software agent is put on each secured endpoint device, watching all activity and using advanced AI technology to identify new threats at inception. When a cyberattack is spotted, ProSight Active Security Monitoring immediately disconnects the infected endpoint from the corporate network to contain the threat. Because the ProSight ASM software agent is self-contained, endpoints stay protected even when they are not connected to the Internet. For details about ProSight Active Security Monitoring, see remote endpoint monitoring for an at-home workforce.
