Security and Compliance for Telecommuters
Telecommuters often run their own equipment and work in a physically unsecured area. This increases their vulnerability to cyber attacks and demands judicious deployment of security appliances, remote monitoring, and the enforcement of policies that adhere to best practices. Progent's veteran roster of certified cybersecurity professionals can assist your organization to design, deploy and manage a compliant cybersecurity solution that protects vital data in IT networks that incorporate teleworkers.
- Firewalls enable companies to create a network that can be safely accessed by local users and by teleworkers, mobile workers, suppliers, clients, and the public. Next-generation firewall devices permit you to configure and control different permissions to different classes of users and to expand your network and adjust your security profile as your company evolves and as cyber threats grow increasingly complex. Progent works with both new and legacy security appliances from all major manufacturers like Cisco, Palo Alto Networks, Check Point, Juniper, and Fortinet.

- Remote Endpoint Monitoring makes it possible to track the various devices utilized by an at-home workforce and either reject or identify and respond to modern threats like ransomware. With ProSight Active Security Monitoring services, a small-footprint agent is put on each protected endpoint, monitoring all activity and utilizing state-of-the-art machine learning to identify zero-day attacks at inception. When a cyberattack is discovered, ProSight ASM instantly isolates the impacted device from the network to contain the threat. Since the ProSight Active Security Monitoring agent is self-contained, endpoint devices stay protected even when they are disconnected from the Internet.
