Security and Compliance for Telecommuters
Telecommuters commonly run their personal computing devices and work in an unsecured space. This worsens their exposure to cyber attacks and requires judicious deployment of security appliances, remote security monitoring, and the creation of policies in compliance with best practices. Progent's veteran team of certified data security experts can help your organization to design, deploy and administer a modern security solution that guards sensitive data in networks that incorporate teleworkers.
- Firewalls allow companies to create a network that can be securely utilized by local users and by telecommuters, mobile employees, suppliers, customers, and other stakeholders. Modern firewall appliances allow you to assign and control appropriate access rights to various classes of users and to scale your IT network and adjust your security profile as your company evolves and as network attacks become more complex. Progent supports both new and legacy security appliances from all leading vendors including Cisco, Palo Alto Networks, WatchGuard, Juniper, SonicWall and Fortinet. To learn more about Progent's firewall integration expertise, see firewall support services.
- Remote Endpoint Monitoring makes it possible to track the various devices used by telecommuters and either reject or identify and respond to the latest cyber attacks such as ransomware. With ProSight Active Security Monitoring (ASM) services, a small-footprint software agent is put on each secured endpoint device, monitoring all activity and using advanced machine learning to detect new attacks on arrival. When an attack is spotted, ProSight Active Security Monitoring immediately disconnects the targeted device from the corporate network to contain the malware. Since the ProSight Active Security Monitoring software agent is autonomous, endpoint devices stay secure even if they are not connected to the Internet. For more information about ProSight Active Security Monitoring, refer to remote endpoint security monitoring for teleworkers.
- Security Audits can evaluate the exposure of your network to all classes of external and internal security attacks for a network that incorporates at-home workers. Progent can deploy remote, automated security analysis software for rapidly and affordably detecting a broad range of security weaknesses that can be surfaced via the Internet. Progent's endpoint security assessment experts, which can be provided by network security professionals with top credentials including CISM, CISSP, and GIAC, can assist your business to audit your operations and policies and review your IT architecture to enable you to design the highest level of protection for your remote workers.
