Cybersecurity for At-Home Workers
Remote workers often use their own computers and work in a physically unsecured area. This worsens their exposure to cyber threats and calls for judicious use of security appliances, remote endpoint monitoring, and the enforcement of policies that adhere to leading practices. Progent's seasoned team of certified cybersecurity professionals can assist your organization to plan, deploy and manage a modern security solution that protects sensitive data in networks that include teleworkers.
- Firewalls enable companies to build a network that can be securely accessed by on-premises users and by telecommuters, mobile users, suppliers, clients, and other stakeholders. Modern firewall devices permit you to configure and manage different access rights to different groups of users and to expand your network and modify your security profile as your business evolves and as network attacks become increasingly complex. Progent works with both new and legacy firewall devices from all major manufacturers like Cisco, Palo Alto Networks, Check Point, Juniper, SonicWall and Fortinet. To find out more about Progent's firewall configuration services, refer to firewall support services.
- Online Endpoint Security Monitoring makes it easy to watch over the various devices used by teleworkers and either block or spot and respond to modern cyber attacks like ransomware. With Progent's ProSight Active Security Monitoring services, a small-footprint agent is put on each protected endpoint device, watching all activity and utilizing state-of-the-art behavioral threat analysis to detect new threats on arrival. When an attack is spotted, ProSight ASM immediately isolates the impacted device from the corporate network to quarantine the threat. Since the ProSight ASM agent is autonomous, endpoints stay protected even when they are disconnected from the Internet. For details about ProSight Active Security Monitoring, see remote endpoint security monitoring for an at-home workforce.
- Security Audits can assess the vulnerability of your network to all classes of outside and local security threats for a network that includes an at-home workforce. Progent can run remote, automated cybersecurity inventory scanning for rapidly and affordably detecting a wide variety of security gaps that can be surfaced via the Internet. Progent's security audit experts, which can be managed by security experts with top certifications including CISM, CISSP, and GIAC, can assist your business to audit your workflows and governance policies and assess your IT infrastructure to enable you to design the highest level of security for your at-home workers.
