Security and Compliance for Remote Workers
At-home workers commonly use their personal equipment and work in an unsecured area. This increases their vulnerability to cyber attacks and calls for careful deployment of firewalls, remote endpoint monitoring, and the enforcement of security policies based on leading practices. Progent's seasoned team of certified data security experts can assist your organization to plan, deploy and administer a compliant security environment that protects vital data in IT networks that incorporate teleworkers.
- Firewalls enable companies to create a network that can be safely utilized by local users as well as by an at-home workforce, mobile workers, suppliers, customers, and the public. Modern firewall devices permit you to configure and manage appropriate permissions to various classes of users and to expand your network and modify your security as your company evolves and as network attacks become more sophisticated. Progent supports both new and older firewall devices from all major manufacturers like Cisco, Palo Alto Networks, Check Point, Juniper, SonicWall and Fortinet. To find out more about Progent's firewall configuration expertise, refer to firewall integration and support expertise.
- Remote Endpoint Security Monitoring makes it easy to track the various computers used by teleworkers and either block or spot and mitigate the latest threats like ransomware. With ProSight Active Security Monitoring services, a lightweight agent is put on each secured endpoint device, watching all activity and utilizing advanced machine learning to identify new threats at inception. When an attack is discovered, ProSight ASM immediately disconnects the infected endpoint device from the corporate network to contain the malware. Since the ProSight ASM software agent is self-contained, endpoints remain protected even when they are offline. For more information about ProSight Active Security Monitoring, refer to remote endpoint monitoring for teleworkers.
- Security Audits can assess the vulnerability of your information system to all types of outside and local security attacks for an environment that includes at-home workers. Progent can run remote, automated cybersecurity inventory software for rapidly and economically uncovering a broad range of security weaknesses that can be found via the Internet. Progent's endpoint security audit consulting services, which can be managed by network security experts with advanced certifications including CISM, ISSAP, and GIAC, can assist you to evaluate your procedures and governance policies and assess your network architecture to enable you to design the highest level of security for your telecommuters.
