Security and Compliance for Teleworkers
Telecommuters commonly use their personal equipment and work in a physically unsecured space. This worsens their exposure to cyber attacks and calls for judicious deployment of firewalls, remote security monitoring, and the enforcement of policies that follow best practices. Progent's seasoned roster of certified cybersecurity experts can assist your company to design, deploy and manage a modern security environment that safeguards sensitive data in IT networks that include an at-home workforce.
- Firewalls enable you to build a network that can be securely accessed by local users and by an at-home workforce, mobile users, suppliers, clients, and other stakeholders. Modern firewall appliances permit you to configure and control different access rights to different classes of users and to scale your IT network and adjust your security profile as your company evolves and as network attacks become more sophisticated. Progent supports both current and legacy firewall appliances from all leading vendors like Cisco, Palo Alto Networks, WatchGuard, Juniper, SonicWall and Fortinet. To find out more about Progent's firewall integration services, see firewall support services.
- Remote Endpoint Monitoring makes it possible to track the disparate computers used by teleworkers and either block or identify and mitigate modern cyber attacks such as ransomware. With Progent's ProSight Active Security Monitoring services, a small-footprint software agent is installed on each protected endpoint device, monitoring all activity and using advanced machine learning and full execution context to identify zero-day threats before they can spread. When a cyberattack is discovered, ProSight Active Security Monitoring immediately isolates the targeted endpoint from the network to quarantine the malware. Because the ProSight Active Security Monitoring software agent is autonomous, endpoints remain secure even when they are offline. To find out more about ProSight Active Security Monitoring, see remote endpoint security monitoring for at-home workers.
- Security Audits can evaluate the exposure of your network to all types of outside and local security attacks for an environment that includes teleworkers. Progent can run online, automated security inventory software for rapidly and economically uncovering a broad range of security weaknesses that can be surfaced via the Internet. Progent's endpoint security assessment consulting services, which can be provided by security professionals with top certifications including CISM, CISSP, and GIAC, can help you to audit your operations and governance policies and assess your IT architecture to allow you to design the highest level of security for your at-home workers.
