Security for Remote Workers
Remote workers commonly run their own equipment and work in an unsecured space. This worsens their exposure to cyber threats and requires careful deployment of firewalls, remote security monitoring, and the enforcement of policies that follow best practices. Progent's seasoned roster of certified cybersecurity experts can help your organization to plan, implement and manage a modern security environment that safeguards sensitive information in IT networks that incorporate an at-home workforce.
- Firewalls allow companies to create a network environment that can be safely utilized by local users as well as by an at-home workforce, mobile users, vendors, clients, and other stakeholders. Modern firewall appliances permit you to assign and manage different access rights to various groups of users and to scale your network and adjust your security profile as your business evolves and as network attacks grow more complex. Progent supports both current and older firewall devices from all major manufacturers including Cisco, Palo Alto Networks, Check Point, Juniper, and Fortinet. For more information about Progent's firewall configuration services, refer to firewall support services.
- Online Endpoint Security Monitoring makes it easy to watch over the various computers used by teleworkers and either block or spot and mitigate the latest threats like ransomware. With Progent's ProSight Active Security Monitoring (ASM) services, a lightweight agent is put on every protected endpoint device, monitoring all activity and utilizing state-of-the-art machine learning to detect new attacks on arrival. When an attack is spotted, ProSight ASM instantly disconnects the impacted endpoint device from the corporate network to contain the threat. Since the ProSight ASM agent is autonomous, endpoints stay protected even if they are not connected to the Internet. To learn more about ProSight Active Security Monitoring, go to remote endpoint security monitoring for at-home workers.
- Security Audits can assess the exposure of your information system to all classes of external and internal security attacks for an environment that includes teleworkers. Progent can run remote, automated cybersecurity inventory scanning for rapidly and affordably detecting a broad range of security weaknesses that can be surfaced via the Internet. Progent's security assessment experts, which can be managed by data security experts with top credentials including CISM, ISSAP, and GIAC, can help your business to audit your operations and policies and review your WAN infrastructure to allow you to implement top-level protection for your remote workers.
