Security for Telecommuters
At-home workers often use their own equipment and work in an unsecured space. This worsens their vulnerability to cyber threats and calls for careful use of security appliances, remote monitoring, and the enforcement of policies based on best practices. Progent's veteran roster of certified cybersecurity experts can assist your company to plan, deploy and manage a compliant security environment that protects vital information in IT networks that incorporate teleworkers.
- Firewalls enable you to create a network that can be securely accessed by local users and by at-home workers, mobile workers, vendors, customers, and other stakeholders. Next-generation firewall appliances allow you to configure and manage appropriate permissions to various groups of users and to scale your IT network and adjust your security as your business evolves and as network attacks grow more complex. Progent supports both new and older firewall devices from all major manufacturers including Cisco, Palo Alto Networks, Check Point, Juniper, and Fortinet. For details about Progent's firewall support expertise, see firewall support expertise.
- Online Endpoint Security Monitoring makes it possible to track the various computers utilized by telecommuters and either reject or spot and mitigate modern cyber attacks like ransomware. With Progent's ProSight Active Security Monitoring (ASM) services, a lightweight agent is installed on each protected endpoint device, monitoring all activity and utilizing state-of-the-art machine learning to identify zero-day attacks on arrival. When a cyberattack is discovered, ProSight ASM instantly isolates the impacted endpoint from the network to contain the malware. Because the ProSight Active Security Monitoring agent is self-contained, endpoint devices stay secure even if they are not connected to the Internet. For details about ProSight ASM, see remote endpoint monitoring for at-home workers.
- Security Audits can assess the vulnerability of your information system to all classes of outside and internal security threats for a network that incorporates telecommuters. Progent can deploy remote, automated security inventory software for quickly and economically detecting a wide variety of security gaps that can be found via the Internet. Progent's endpoint security assessment consulting services, which can be managed by network security professionals with top certifications such as CISM, CISSP, and GIAC, can help you to audit your procedures and policies and assess your IT architecture to enable you to design the highest level of security for your an at-home workforce.
