Security and Compliance for Telecommuters
Telecommuters commonly run their own equipment and work in an unsecured space. This increases their exposure to cyber threats and calls for careful use of firewalls, remote endpoint monitoring, and the creation of security policies that adhere to best practices. Progent's veteran team of certified cybersecurity experts can help your organization to design, implement and administer a compliant cybersecurity solution that guards critical data in IT networks that include an at-home workforce.
- Firewalls enable you to build a network environment that can be safely utilized by on-premises users as well as by at-home workers, mobile users, vendors, customers, and other stakeholders. Modern firewall appliances allow you to configure and control appropriate permissions to different classes of users and to expand your IT network and modify your security profile as your company evolves and as cyber threats become more sophisticated. Progent supports both new and legacy firewall devices from all leading manufacturers including Cisco, Palo Alto Networks, WatchGuard, Juniper, SonicWall and Fortinet. For details about Progent's firewall configuration services, go to firewall support expertise.
- Online Endpoint Monitoring makes it possible to track the various devices utilized by teleworkers and either reject or identify and mitigate the latest cyber attacks like ransomware. With Progent's ProSight Active Security Monitoring (ASM) services, a lightweight software agent is put on each protected endpoint device, watching all activity and utilizing state-of-the-art machine learning to detect new threats on arrival. When an attack is discovered, ProSight Active Security Monitoring immediately disconnects the targeted endpoint from the network to quarantine the threat. Because the ProSight ASM software agent is self-contained, endpoints remain protected even if they are disconnected from the Internet.

- Security Audits can assess the vulnerability of your information system to all classes of outside and local security threats for an environment that includes telecommuters. Progent can deploy online, automated security inventory scanning for rapidly and economically detecting a wide variety of security weaknesses that can be found over the Internet. Progent's security assessment consulting services, which can be provided by network security experts with top certifications including CISA, ISSAP, and GIAC, can help you to evaluate your processes and governance policies and assess your network infrastructure to enable you to implement top-level security for your at-home workers.
