Security and Compliance for At-Home Workers
At-home workers commonly use their own computing devices and work in a physically unsecured space. This worsens their vulnerability to cyber threats and requires judicious deployment of firewalls, remote monitoring, and the enforcement of security policies that follow best practices. Progent's seasoned team of certified cybersecurity professionals can assist your business to plan, deploy and manage a modern security solution that protects sensitive information in networks that include telecommuters.

  • Firewalls enable you to build a network that can be securely accessed by local users as well as by an at-home workforce, mobile workers, suppliers, customers, and other stakeholders. Next-generation firewall devices allow you to assign and control appropriate access rights to different groups of users and to expand your IT network and adjust your security as your company evolves and as network attacks become increasingly complex. Progent supports both new and older security appliances from all major vendors including Cisco, Palo Alto Networks, WatchGuard, Juniper, SonicWall and Fortinet.

  • Remote Endpoint Monitoring makes it easy to watch over the disparate devices utilized by an at-home workforce and either reject or spot and respond to the latest cyber attacks like ransomware. With Progent's ProSight Active Security Monitoring services, a small-footprint software agent is installed on each protected endpoint, monitoring all activity and utilizing advanced AI technology to detect new threats on arrival. When an attack is discovered, ProSight Active Security Monitoring immediately disconnects the impacted device from the network to quarantine the threat. Since the ProSight Active Security Monitoring software agent is autonomous, endpoint devices remain secure even when they are offline. To learn more about ProSight ASM, refer to remote endpoint monitoring for an at-home workforce.
  • Security Audits can evaluate the vulnerability of your network to all types of outside and local security threats for an environment that incorporates remote workers. Progent can run online, automated cybersecurity inventory scanning for quickly and economically detecting a wide variety of security gaps that can be surfaced via the Internet. Progent's security assessment consulting services, which can be managed by security experts with top certifications including CISA, ISSAP, and GIAC, can help your business to evaluate your workflows and policies and assess your network architecture to allow you to implement top-level security for your telecommuters.
