Security for At-Home Workers
Remote workers commonly use their personal equipment and work in a physically unsecured environment. This increases their exposure to cyber attacks and requires judicious use of firewalls, remote monitoring, and the creation of policies in compliance with leading practices. Progent's seasoned roster of certified cybersecurity professionals can assist you to design, implement and administer a modern cybersecurity solution that guards sensitive data in networks that include at-home workers.
- Firewalls allow companies to create a network that can be securely utilized by on-premises users and by an at-home workforce, mobile employees, vendors, clients, and the public. Modern firewall appliances allow you to configure and manage different access rights to various groups of users and to scale your network and adjust your security as your company evolves and as network attacks become more complex. Progent supports both new and legacy security appliances from all major vendors like Cisco, Palo Alto Networks, Check Point, Juniper, SonicWall and Fortinet.

- Online Endpoint Security Monitoring makes it possible to watch over the various devices used by teleworkers and either block or spot and respond to the latest threats such as ransomware. With ProSight Active Security Monitoring (ASM) services, a lightweight agent is put on every secured endpoint, watching all activity and using advanced machine learning to identify zero-day threats on arrival. When a cyberattack is spotted, ProSight Active Security Monitoring instantly disconnects the infected device from the corporate network to quarantine the malware. Since the ProSight Active Security Monitoring agent is self-contained, endpoint devices remain protected even if they are not connected to the Internet. To learn more about ProSight ASM, see remote endpoint monitoring for telecommuters.
- Security Audits can assess the vulnerability of your information system to all types of outside and internal security threats for a network that incorporates remote workers. Progent can deploy remote, automated cybersecurity inventory scanning for rapidly and economically detecting a broad range of security weaknesses that can be surfaced over the Internet. Progent's security audit consulting services, which can be managed by network security experts with advanced credentials such as CISA, ISSAP, and GIAC, can help your business to audit your operations and policies and review your WAN infrastructure to allow you to implement the highest level of protection for your remote workers.
