Security and Compliance for Teleworkers
Remote workers commonly run their personal computing devices and work in an unsecured environment. This worsens their vulnerability to cyber threats and demands careful deployment 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 organization to design, deploy and manage a compliant security environment that guards critical data in networks that incorporate telecommuters.
- Firewalls allow companies to build a network that can be securely accessed by on-premises users and by an at-home workforce, mobile users, vendors, customers, and other stakeholders. Next-generation firewall devices permit you to configure and manage different access rights to different groups of users and to expand your network and adjust your security profile as your company evolves and as cyber threats become more complex. Progent supports both current and older security devices from all major manufacturers like Cisco, Palo Alto Networks, Check Point, Juniper, SonicWall and Fortinet.

- Remote Endpoint Monitoring makes it easy to track the various devices used by teleworkers and either block or spot and respond to modern cyber attacks like ransomware. With ProSight Active Security Monitoring (ASM) services, a small-footprint software agent is put on each protected endpoint device, watching all activity and utilizing state-of-the-art machine learning to identify new attacks on arrival. When a cyberattack is discovered, ProSight ASM immediately disconnects the targeted endpoint from the network to contain the threat. Since the ProSight ASM agent is autonomous, endpoints remain secure even when they are not connected to the Internet. For more information about ProSight ASM, go to remote endpoint monitoring for remote workers.
- Security Audits can assess the exposure of your network to all classes of outside and local security threats for a network that incorporates an at-home workforce. Progent can run remote, automated security inventory scanning for quickly and economically detecting a broad range of security weaknesses that can be found over the Internet. Progent's endpoint security assessment consulting services, which can be provided by security professionals with top certifications such as CISM, ISSAP, and GIAC, can assist your company to evaluate your operations and policies and review your WAN infrastructure to enable you to implement top-level security for your remote workers.
