Cybersecurity for Remote Workers
Teleworkers often run their personal computers and work in a physically unsecured space. This worsens their exposure to cyber threats and demands careful use of firewalls, remote security monitoring, and the enforcement of policies in compliance with best practices. Progent's seasoned roster of certified cybersecurity professionals can assist your company to plan, deploy and manage a modern cybersecurity solution that protects sensitive information in IT networks that incorporate telecommuters.
- Firewalls enable companies to build a network that can be securely accessed by on-premises users and by teleworkers, mobile workers, vendors, clients, and other stakeholders. Modern firewall appliances allow you to assign and control appropriate access rights to different classes of users and to expand your IT network and modify your security as your business evolves and as network attacks become increasingly complex. Progent supports both new and legacy firewall appliances from all major vendors including Cisco, Palo Alto Networks, WatchGuard, Juniper, SonicWall and Fortinet.

- Online Endpoint Security Monitoring makes it possible to track the disparate devices used by teleworkers and either reject or identify and mitigate the latest threats like ransomware. With ProSight Active Security Monitoring (ASM) services, a lightweight software agent is installed on each protected endpoint device, watching all activity and utilizing advanced machine learning and full execution context to detect zero-day threats at inception. When a cyberattack is discovered, ProSight ASM instantly disconnects the infected endpoint device from the network to quarantine the malware. Because the ProSight ASM agent is self-contained, endpoint devices stay secure even when they are disconnected from the Internet. For more information about ProSight ASM, refer to remote endpoint monitoring for teleworkers.
- Security Audits can evaluate the vulnerability of your information system to all types of external and internal security threats for a network that incorporates an at-home workforce. Progent can deploy remote, automated cybersecurity inventory scanning for quickly and affordably detecting a wide variety of security holes that can be found via the Internet. Progent's endpoint security audit experts, which can be provided by network security professionals with top certifications such as CISA, ISSAP, and GIAC, can help your company to evaluate your operations and governance policies and review your WAN infrastructure to enable you to implement top-level protection for your telecommuters.
