Security and Compliance for At-Home Workers
Remote workers often use their own computing devices and work in an unsecured environment. This worsens their exposure to cyber threats and demands judicious deployment of security appliances, remote monitoring, and the creation of policies based on best practices. Progent's seasoned team of certified data security experts can help you to design, deploy and administer a modern cybersecurity environment that safeguards vital data in networks that include an at-home workforce.
- Firewalls enable companies to create a network environment that can be safely utilized by local users as well as by an at-home workforce, mobile employees, suppliers, clients, and other stakeholders. Modern firewall devices permit you to assign and manage appropriate access rights to various classes of users and to expand your network and modify your security as your company evolves and as network attacks become more sophisticated. Progent works with both new and older firewall devices from all leading manufacturers like Cisco, Palo Alto Networks, WatchGuard, Juniper, SonicWall and Fortinet. To learn more about Progent's firewall configuration services, refer to firewall support services.
- Remote Endpoint Monitoring makes it easy to track the disparate computers used by telecommuters and either block or spot and respond to modern threats such as ransomware. With ProSight Active Security Monitoring (ASM) services, a lightweight agent is put on every protected endpoint, watching all activity and using advanced machine learning to identify zero-day attacks before they can spread. When a cyberattack is spotted, ProSight Active Security Monitoring immediately disconnects the targeted endpoint device from the network to quarantine the threat. Because the ProSight ASM software agent is autonomous, endpoint devices remain protected even when they are not connected to the Internet. For more information about ProSight ASM, go to remote endpoint security monitoring for telecommuters.
- Security Audits can assess the vulnerability of your network to all classes of external and local security attacks for an environment that includes an at-home workforce. Progent can run online, automated cybersecurity inventory software for rapidly and economically uncovering a wide variety of security gaps that can be surfaced over the Internet. Progent's security assessment experts, which can be managed by data security experts with advanced credentials such as CISM, ISSAP, and GIAC, can assist your business to audit your procedures and governance policies and assess your WAN infrastructure to enable you to implement the highest level of protection for your an at-home workforce.
