Cybersecurity for Teleworkers
Teleworkers commonly run their own computers and work in an unsecured area. This worsens their exposure to cyber threats and calls for judicious use of security appliances, remote security monitoring, and the creation of policies based on leading practices. Progent's seasoned team of certified data security professionals can help your business to design, implement and manage a compliant security solution that safeguards vital information in IT networks that incorporate an at-home workforce.
- Firewalls allow companies to create a network environment that can be safely accessed by on-premises users and by an at-home workforce, mobile employees, vendors, customers, and the public. Next-generation firewall devices allow you to assign and control different permissions to various groups of users and to scale your network and adjust your security profile as your business evolves and as network attacks become more complex. Progent supports both current and older security devices from all major manufacturers including Cisco, Palo Alto Networks, WatchGuard, Juniper, and Fortinet. For details about Progent's firewall support services, see firewall integration and support services.
- Online Endpoint Security Monitoring makes it easy to track the various devices used by teleworkers and either block or spot and mitigate modern cyber attacks such as ransomware. With ProSight Active Security Monitoring services, a lightweight agent is put on every secured endpoint, watching all activity and utilizing advanced machine learning to identify zero-day threats on arrival. When a cyberattack is spotted, ProSight ASM instantly disconnects the targeted endpoint device from the corporate network to quarantine the threat. Because the ProSight Active Security Monitoring software agent is autonomous, endpoints stay protected even when they are offline. For details about ProSight Active Security Monitoring, go to remote endpoint security monitoring for telecommuters.
- Security Audits can evaluate the exposure of your information system to all classes of outside and local security attacks for a network that includes telecommuters. Progent can run online, automated security analysis scanning for quickly and affordably detecting a wide variety of security weaknesses that can be found via the Internet. Progent's endpoint security assessment experts, which can be managed by data security professionals with advanced credentials such as CISA, ISSAP, and GIAC, can assist your company to audit your operations and policies and assess your IT architecture to enable you to implement the highest level of protection for your remote workers.
