Cybersecurity for Remote Workers
At-home workers often run their personal computing devices and work in an unsecured environment. This increases their exposure to cyber attacks and demands judicious deployment of security appliances, remote endpoint monitoring, and the creation of policies that follow leading practices. Progent's seasoned roster of certified data security professionals can assist your organization to design, implement and manage a modern security solution that safeguards critical data in networks that incorporate telecommuters.
- Firewalls enable you to build a network that can be securely utilized by local users as well as by an at-home workforce, mobile employees, vendors, customers, and the public. Modern firewall appliances permit you to configure and manage appropriate access rights to different groups of users and to expand your IT network and modify your security as your business evolves and as cyber threats grow increasingly sophisticated. Progent works with both current and older firewall appliances from all leading manufacturers like Cisco, Palo Alto Networks, Check Point, Juniper, SonicWall and Fortinet. For details about Progent's firewall configuration expertise, see firewall integration and support services.
- Remote Endpoint Monitoring makes it possible to track the various computers utilized by an at-home workforce and either block or spot and respond to the latest cyber attacks such as ransomware. With Progent's ProSight Active Security Monitoring (ASM) services, a small-footprint software agent is installed on each secured endpoint device, watching all activity and using advanced machine learning to identify zero-day attacks at inception. When an attack is discovered, ProSight Active Security Monitoring immediately isolates the infected device from the network to quarantine the threat. Since the ProSight Active Security Monitoring agent is self-contained, endpoints stay protected even if they are offline. To learn more about ProSight Active Security Monitoring, refer to remote endpoint monitoring for at-home workers.
- Security Audits can assess the vulnerability of your information system to all classes of external and internal security threats for a network that incorporates an at-home workforce. Progent can run remote, automated security inventory software for quickly and economically uncovering a wide variety of security holes that can be found over the Internet. Progent's security audit experts, which can be managed by security professionals with advanced credentials such as CISA, ISSAP, and GIAC, can assist your business to audit your workflows and governance policies and review your network architecture to enable you to design the highest level of protection for your telecommuters.
