Cybersecurity for Remote Workers
Remote workers often use their personal computing devices and work in a physically unsecured environment. This increases their vulnerability to cyber attacks and demands judicious deployment of firewalls, remote security monitoring, and the enforcement of policies based on best practices. Progent's seasoned team of certified cybersecurity professionals can help you to design, implement and administer a compliant security environment that guards critical information in IT networks that include an at-home workforce.
- Firewalls enable companies to create a network environment that can be safely utilized by local users and by teleworkers, mobile employees, suppliers, clients, and the public. Modern firewall devices allow you to configure and manage different access rights to various groups of users and to expand your IT network and adjust your security as your business evolves and as cyber threats become more complex. Progent works with both new and older firewall devices from all leading manufacturers including Cisco, Palo Alto Networks, Check Point, Juniper, SonicWall and Fortinet.

- Online Endpoint Monitoring makes it easy to track the disparate computers utilized by teleworkers and either block or spot and respond to the latest cyber attacks like ransomware. With ProSight Active Security Monitoring (ASM) services, a small-footprint agent is installed on each protected endpoint device, watching all activity and utilizing advanced machine learning and full execution context to identify zero-day attacks on arrival. When a cyberattack is spotted, ProSight Active Security Monitoring instantly disconnects the targeted device from the network to contain the threat. Since the ProSight Active Security Monitoring software agent is autonomous, endpoint devices remain secure even when they are disconnected from the Internet. For details about ProSight Active Security Monitoring, go to remote endpoint security monitoring for teleworkers.
- Security Audits can assess the vulnerability of your network to all types of external and local security threats for a network that includes teleworkers. Progent can deploy online, automated cybersecurity inventory software for quickly and affordably detecting a wide variety of security holes that can be surfaced via the Internet. Progent's security assessment experts, which can be managed by data security experts with top credentials including CISA, ISSAP, and GIAC, can help your company to audit your procedures and governance policies and assess your WAN infrastructure to enable you to implement top-level security for your remote workers.
