Security and Compliance for At-Home Workers
At-home workers commonly use their personal equipment and work in a physically unsecured area. This increases their vulnerability to cyber threats and calls for judicious use of firewalls, remote endpoint monitoring, and the enforcement of policies that follow best practices. Progent's veteran team of certified data security professionals can assist your organization to plan, deploy and manage a modern security solution that safeguards critical information in networks that incorporate teleworkers.
- Firewalls enable companies to build a network environment that can be safely utilized by local users as well as by at-home workers, mobile users, vendors, clients, and the public. Modern firewall appliances permit you to assign and manage different permissions to different groups of users and to scale your IT network and modify your security profile as your business evolves and as cyber threats become more sophisticated. Progent works with both current and legacy firewall appliances from all leading vendors like Cisco, Palo Alto Networks, Check Point, Juniper, and Fortinet. For details about Progent's firewall configuration expertise, see firewall support expertise.
- Remote Endpoint Security Monitoring makes it easy to track the various computers used by at-home workers and either reject or identify and respond to modern cyber attacks such as ransomware. With ProSight Active Security Monitoring (ASM) services, a lightweight software agent is put on every protected endpoint, monitoring all activity and utilizing state-of-the-art machine learning to detect zero-day attacks on arrival. When a cyberattack is spotted, ProSight ASM immediately disconnects the infected endpoint device from the corporate network to contain the malware. Because the ProSight ASM agent is self-contained, endpoint devices stay protected even if they are not connected to the Internet.

- Security Audits can evaluate the vulnerability of your network to all classes of external and internal security threats for an environment that includes remote workers. Progent can deploy online, automated cybersecurity inventory scanning for quickly and economically uncovering a broad range of security holes that can be found via the Internet.
