Security and Compliance for Teleworkers
Teleworkers commonly use their own equipment and work in an unsecured space. This worsens their vulnerability to cyber threats and requires careful deployment of security appliances, remote monitoring, and the creation of security policies that follow leading practices. Progent's seasoned roster of certified data security professionals can help your business to plan, deploy and manage a compliant cybersecurity solution that safeguards vital data in IT networks that incorporate teleworkers.

  • Firewalls allow companies to create a network that can be safely accessed by local users and by an at-home workforce, mobile users, suppliers, customers, and the public. Modern firewall devices permit you to assign and control different access rights to different groups of users and to scale your IT network and adjust your security as your company evolves and as cyber threats become more complex. Progent supports both current and older firewall devices from all leading manufacturers including Cisco, Palo Alto Networks, Check Point, Juniper, SonicWall and Fortinet.

  • Remote Endpoint Monitoring makes it possible to watch over the various devices utilized by remote workers and either reject or spot and respond to the latest threats such as ransomware. With ProSight Active Security Monitoring (ASM) services, a lightweight software agent is installed on every protected endpoint, watching all activity and utilizing advanced machine learning to identify zero-day attacks at inception. When a cyberattack is spotted, ProSight Active Security Monitoring immediately disconnects the targeted device from the corporate network to contain the threat. Since the ProSight ASM agent is self-contained, endpoint devices remain protected even when they are disconnected from the Internet. For details about ProSight ASM, visit remote endpoint security monitoring for telecommuters.
  • Security Audits can evaluate the vulnerability of your network to all classes of external and local security attacks for a network that incorporates remote workers. Progent can deploy remote, automated security analysis scanning for quickly and affordably uncovering a broad range of security holes that can be surfaced via the Internet. Progent's security audit consulting services, which can be provided by data security experts with top credentials including CISA, ISSAP, and GIAC, can assist your business to evaluate your processes and policies and assess your IT architecture to enable you to implement the highest level of security for your remote workers.
