Cybersecurity for Telecommuters
At-home workers commonly use their personal computers and work in an unsecured area. This worsens their vulnerability to cyber attacks and requires careful deployment of firewalls, remote monitoring, and the creation of security policies based on best practices. Progent's seasoned roster of certified cybersecurity professionals can help you to design, implement and manage a compliant security environment that guards sensitive data in networks that include telecommuters.
- Firewalls allow companies to create a network that can be securely utilized by on-premises users as well as by at-home workers, mobile users, suppliers, customers, and the public. Next-generation firewall devices allow you to configure and control different access rights to different groups of users and to scale your network and modify your security profile as your business evolves and as network attacks grow more sophisticated. Progent supports both current and older security devices from all major vendors like Cisco, Palo Alto Networks, WatchGuard, Juniper, and Fortinet.

- Remote Endpoint Monitoring makes it easy to watch over the various computers utilized by at-home workers and either block or spot and mitigate modern cyber attacks such as ransomware. With ProSight Active Security Monitoring (ASM) services, a small-footprint software agent is put on each secured endpoint, watching all activity and utilizing state-of-the-art machine learning to detect new threats on arrival. When an attack is spotted, ProSight ASM immediately disconnects the impacted device from the corporate network to quarantine the threat. Because the ProSight Active Security Monitoring software agent is self-contained, endpoint devices stay secure even when they are disconnected from the Internet.

- Security Audits can evaluate the vulnerability of your information system to all classes of external and internal security attacks for an environment that includes telecommuters. Progent can run remote, automated cybersecurity inventory scanning for rapidly and economically detecting a broad range of security weaknesses that can be found over the Internet. Progent's security assessment consulting services, which can be managed by data security experts with top credentials including CISA, CISSP, and GIAC, can help you to audit your processes and policies and review your network infrastructure to allow you to implement the highest level of security for your teleworkers.
