Cybersecurity for Remote Workers
At-home workers often use their own computers and work in a physically unsecured environment. This increases their vulnerability to cyber threats and calls for careful use of firewalls, remote security monitoring, and the creation of policies that follow best practices. Progent's veteran team of certified data security experts can help you to plan, deploy and administer a modern security solution that safeguards sensitive data in IT networks that include at-home workers.
- Firewalls enable companies to build a network environment that can be safely accessed by on-premises users and by teleworkers, mobile workers, vendors, clients, and other stakeholders. Next-generation firewall devices allow you to configure and control different access rights to different classes of users and to scale your IT network and modify your security profile as your company evolves and as network attacks become more complex. Progent works with both current and legacy security appliances from all leading manufacturers like Cisco, Palo Alto Networks, WatchGuard, Juniper, SonicWall and Fortinet.

- Online Endpoint Security Monitoring makes it easy to watch over the disparate computers utilized by an at-home workforce and either block or identify and mitigate the latest cyber attacks like ransomware. With Progent's ProSight Active Security Monitoring (ASM) services, a lightweight software agent is installed on each protected endpoint, watching all activity and utilizing state-of-the-art behavioral threat analysis to identify new threats on arrival. When a cyberattack is discovered, ProSight ASM instantly disconnects the impacted device from the network to contain the malware. Because the ProSight Active Security Monitoring agent is autonomous, endpoints remain secure even if they are offline. To learn more about ProSight Active Security Monitoring, refer to remote endpoint monitoring for teleworkers.
- Security Audits can evaluate the exposure of your network to all classes of outside and local security attacks for a network that incorporates teleworkers. Progent can run online, automated cybersecurity analysis scanning for quickly and economically detecting a broad range of security gaps that can be surfaced via the Internet. Progent's endpoint security audit consulting services, which can be provided by network security professionals with top credentials such as CISA, CISSP, and GIAC, can assist your business to evaluate your processes and governance policies and review your WAN infrastructure to allow you to implement top-level protection for your telecommuters.
