Security and Compliance for Telecommuters
Telecommuters commonly run their personal computers and work in an unsecured environment. This increases their exposure to cyber attacks and requires careful use of firewalls, remote security monitoring, and the creation of security policies in compliance with best practices. Progent's veteran team of certified cybersecurity experts can help your organization to plan, implement and manage a compliant cybersecurity solution that protects vital information in IT networks that incorporate telecommuters.
- Firewalls enable companies to create a network that can be safely accessed by on-premises users and by teleworkers, mobile employees, vendors, customers, and the public. Modern firewall appliances permit you to assign and control appropriate permissions to various groups of users and to scale your IT network and modify your security as your business evolves and as network attacks grow more sophisticated. Progent supports both current and legacy firewall appliances from all major manufacturers including Cisco, Palo Alto Networks, Check Point, Juniper, SonicWall and Fortinet.

- Online Endpoint Monitoring makes it possible to watch over the various computers used by at-home workers and either block or identify and respond to modern cyber attacks such as ransomware. With Progent's ProSight Active Security Monitoring services, a lightweight agent is installed on each secured endpoint device, monitoring all activity and utilizing state-of-the-art AI technology to detect zero-day attacks at inception. When an attack is spotted, ProSight Active Security Monitoring instantly isolates the impacted device from the network to contain the threat. Because the ProSight ASM software agent is self-contained, endpoint devices remain protected even when they are disconnected from the Internet.

Progent can deploy online, automated cybersecurity inventory scanning for quickly and economically uncovering a wide variety of security holes that can be found via the Internet.
