Cybersecurity for Telecommuters
Remote workers often run their own computers and work in a physically unsecured space. This worsens their vulnerability to cyber attacks and demands judicious deployment of firewalls, remote endpoint monitoring, and the creation of policies in compliance with leading practices. Progent's veteran team of certified cybersecurity professionals can assist you to design, deploy and manage a modern security environment that safeguards sensitive information in IT networks that incorporate telecommuters.
- Firewalls allow companies to create a network environment that can be securely utilized by local users as well as by telecommuters, mobile users, suppliers, customers, and the public. Next-generation firewall devices allow you to configure and control different access rights to different groups of users and to scale your IT network and modify your security as your business evolves and as network attacks grow more complex. Progent supports both current and legacy firewall appliances from all leading vendors like Cisco, Palo Alto Networks, Check Point, Juniper, and Fortinet. For more information about Progent's firewall configuration services, see firewall configuration and support services.
- Remote Endpoint Monitoring makes it possible to watch over the various computers used by teleworkers and either block or spot and respond to the latest threats like ransomware. With ProSight Active Security Monitoring services, a small-footprint software agent is put on each protected endpoint, monitoring all activity and using advanced machine learning to identify new threats on arrival. When a cyberattack is spotted, ProSight Active Security Monitoring immediately isolates the infected device from the network to quarantine the malware. Since the ProSight ASM software agent is autonomous, endpoint devices remain secure even if they are not connected to the Internet. For more information about ProSight ASM, visit remote endpoint security monitoring for at-home workers.
- Security Audits can evaluate the exposure of your information system to all types of external and local security attacks for an environment that incorporates teleworkers. Progent can run online, automated security inventory scanning for rapidly and affordably detecting a wide variety of security weaknesses that can be surfaced via the Internet. Progent's endpoint security assessment consulting services, which can be managed by data security experts with top credentials including CISA, CISSP, and GIAC, can assist you to audit your workflows and governance policies and assess your WAN architecture to enable you to design top-level security for your remote workers.
