Security for Telecommuters
At-home workers commonly use their own computers and work in a physically unsecured environment. This increases their exposure to cyber threats and calls for careful deployment of security appliances, remote monitoring, and the enforcement of security policies that adhere to best practices. Progent's seasoned roster of certified data security experts can help your business to design, implement and administer a compliant security solution that protects critical data in IT networks that include at-home workers.
- Firewalls enable you to create a network that can be securely utilized by local users as well as by at-home workers, mobile users, suppliers, customers, and the public. Modern firewall appliances allow you to assign and manage different permissions to various classes of users and to expand your network and adjust your security as your company evolves and as network attacks become increasingly sophisticated. Progent supports both new and legacy security appliances from all major manufacturers like Cisco, Palo Alto Networks, Check Point, Juniper, SonicWall and Fortinet.

- Online Endpoint Monitoring makes it possible to watch over the various devices utilized by remote workers and either reject or spot and respond to the latest cyber attacks such as ransomware. With Progent's ProSight Active Security Monitoring services, a small-footprint agent is installed on every protected endpoint device, watching all activity and utilizing advanced machine learning and full execution context to identify new attacks at inception. When an attack is spotted, ProSight ASM immediately isolates the targeted device from the network to quarantine the threat. Because the ProSight ASM agent is autonomous, endpoints stay secure even if they are not connected to the Internet. For details about ProSight ASM, refer to remote endpoint security monitoring for remote workers.
- Security Audits can evaluate the exposure of your network to all types of external and internal security attacks for an environment that incorporates an at-home workforce. Progent can run remote, automated security inventory scanning for quickly and economically detecting a wide variety of security weaknesses that can be surfaced over the Internet. Progent's endpoint security assessment experts, which can be provided by data security professionals with advanced certifications including CISM, CISSP, and GIAC, can assist you to evaluate your operations and governance policies and assess your network architecture to enable you to design top-level security for your remote workers.
