Security for Telecommuters
Telecommuters commonly run their personal equipment and work in a physically unsecured area. This worsens their exposure to cyber threats and calls for careful use of security appliances, remote monitoring, and the creation of policies that adhere to leading practices. Progent's veteran team of certified data security professionals can help your business to design, implement and manage a modern cybersecurity solution that protects critical information in networks that incorporate telecommuters.

  • Firewalls enable you to build a network that can be safely utilized by local users and by telecommuters, mobile users, vendors, clients, and other stakeholders. Modern firewall appliances permit you to assign and manage different access rights to various classes of users and to expand your IT network and modify your security profile as your business evolves and as network attacks become increasingly sophisticated. Progent works with both current and legacy security appliances from all major manufacturers like Cisco, Palo Alto Networks, Check Point, Juniper, SonicWall and Fortinet. For details about Progent's firewall configuration services, refer to firewall support services.
  • Remote Endpoint Security Monitoring makes it easy to watch over the disparate devices utilized by at-home workers and either reject or identify and respond to modern cyber attacks like ransomware. With Progent's ProSight Active Security Monitoring (ASM) services, a lightweight agent is put on each secured endpoint device, monitoring all activity and using state-of-the-art machine learning and full execution context to identify zero-day threats on arrival. When a cyberattack is spotted, ProSight Active Security Monitoring immediately isolates the infected device from the corporate network to contain the threat. Because the ProSight Active Security Monitoring agent is autonomous, endpoint devices remain secure even if they are not connected to the Internet.

  • Security Audits can assess the vulnerability of your information system to all types of external and local security threats for a network that incorporates teleworkers. Progent can run remote, automated security inventory scanning for quickly and affordably uncovering a wide variety of security weaknesses that can be surfaced over the Internet. Progent's security assessment consulting services, which can be provided by security professionals with advanced credentials such as CISM, ISSAP, and GIAC, can assist your company to evaluate your operations and governance policies and assess your IT architecture to enable you to implement top-level security for your telecommuters.
