Security for At-Home Workers
At-home workers commonly run their personal computing devices and work in a physically unsecured environment. This worsens their exposure to cyber threats and demands careful use of security appliances, remote security monitoring, and the creation of policies based on leading practices. Progent's seasoned roster of certified data security experts can assist your organization to design, implement and administer a modern security environment that protects sensitive data in IT networks that include at-home workers.
- Firewalls enable companies to build a network that can be safely accessed by on-premises users and by telecommuters, mobile workers, suppliers, clients, and other stakeholders. Modern firewall appliances permit you to configure and control different permissions to various groups of users and to expand your IT network and adjust your security as your company evolves and as cyber threats become increasingly sophisticated. Progent works with both current and older firewall appliances from all major vendors including Cisco, Palo Alto Networks, Check Point, Juniper, SonicWall and Fortinet. For details about Progent's firewall integration services, see firewall support expertise.
- Remote Endpoint Monitoring makes it easy to track the various devices utilized by at-home workers and either reject or identify and mitigate the latest threats such as ransomware. With Progent's ProSight Active Security Monitoring services, a small-footprint software agent is installed on every secured endpoint, watching all activity and utilizing advanced machine learning to identify new attacks before they can spread. When a cyberattack is spotted, ProSight ASM immediately isolates the targeted device from the corporate network to contain the malware. Because the ProSight Active Security Monitoring software agent is self-contained, endpoints remain protected even when they are not connected to the Internet. For more information about ProSight ASM, refer to remote endpoint security monitoring for teleworkers.
- Security Audits can assess the vulnerability of your network to all classes of external and internal security attacks for an environment that includes at-home workers. Progent can run online, automated cybersecurity inventory software for rapidly and affordably detecting a wide variety of security gaps that can be found over the Internet. Progent's security assessment consulting services, which can be managed by network security professionals with top credentials including CISM, CISSP, and GIAC, can help your business to audit your workflows and policies and review your network infrastructure to allow you to design top-level protection for your at-home workers.
