Security and Compliance for Teleworkers
Telecommuters commonly use their personal equipment and work in an unsecured space. This increases their vulnerability to cyber threats and requires judicious deployment of firewalls, remote security monitoring, and the enforcement of policies that follow best practices. Progent's veteran roster of certified data security experts can help your company to design, implement and manage a compliant cybersecurity environment that guards vital data in IT networks that include at-home workers.
- Firewalls allow you to build a network that can be safely accessed by on-premises users as well as by an at-home workforce, mobile employees, suppliers, clients, and the public. Next-generation firewall appliances permit you to assign and manage different access rights to different groups of users and to scale your IT network and adjust your security profile as your company evolves and as cyber threats become more complex. Progent works with both new and legacy security devices from all major manufacturers like Cisco, Palo Alto Networks, Check Point, Juniper, and Fortinet.

- Remote Endpoint Security Monitoring makes it easy to track the disparate devices used by remote workers and either reject or identify and respond to modern cyber attacks such as ransomware. With ProSight Active Security Monitoring (ASM) services, a small-footprint agent is put on each secured endpoint, watching all activity and using advanced machine learning to identify new threats on arrival. When a cyberattack is discovered, ProSight ASM immediately disconnects the targeted endpoint device from the network to quarantine the threat. Because the ProSight Active Security Monitoring agent is autonomous, endpoints stay secure even when they are not connected to the Internet. For details about ProSight Active Security Monitoring, refer to remote endpoint monitoring for teleworkers.
- Security Audits can evaluate the vulnerability of your information system to all classes of external and local security attacks for a network that includes remote workers. Progent can run online, automated cybersecurity inventory software for quickly and economically detecting a wide variety of security gaps that can be surfaced via the Internet. Progent's endpoint security audit experts, which can be managed by data security professionals with advanced certifications such as CISA, CISSP, and GIAC, can help your business to evaluate your operations and governance policies and assess your WAN architecture to allow you to implement the highest level of protection for your remote workers.
