Security and Compliance for Remote Workers
Telecommuters often use their own equipment and work in an unsecured environment. This increases their exposure to cyber threats and demands judicious use of security appliances, remote endpoint monitoring, and the creation of policies based on best practices. Progent's veteran team of certified cybersecurity professionals can assist your business to plan, deploy and manage a compliant cybersecurity solution that safeguards vital data in networks that incorporate an at-home workforce.

  • Firewalls enable you to build a network that can be securely utilized by local users and by telecommuters, mobile users, suppliers, customers, and other stakeholders. Modern firewall devices permit you to assign and control different access rights to various classes of users and to scale your IT network and modify your security as your company evolves and as cyber threats grow increasingly complex. Progent supports both new and legacy firewall appliances from all major vendors like Cisco, Palo Alto Networks, WatchGuard, Juniper, SonicWall and Fortinet. For details about Progent's firewall configuration expertise, refer to firewall integration and support expertise.
  • Online Endpoint Monitoring makes it easy to track the various devices utilized by telecommuters and either block or spot and respond to the latest threats like ransomware. With ProSight Active Security Monitoring (ASM) services, a lightweight agent is installed on each secured endpoint device, monitoring all activity and utilizing advanced AI technology to identify new attacks at inception. When a cyberattack is discovered, ProSight Active Security Monitoring immediately disconnects the targeted endpoint device from the corporate network to quarantine the malware. Since the ProSight Active Security Monitoring software agent is self-contained, endpoints stay secure even when they are disconnected from the Internet. For details about ProSight ASM, see remote endpoint monitoring for an at-home workforce.
  • Security Audits can assess the vulnerability of your information system to all types of outside and local security attacks for a network that includes telecommuters. Progent can run online, automated cybersecurity analysis scanning for rapidly and affordably uncovering a broad range of security holes that can be surfaced over the Internet. Progent's endpoint security audit experts, which can be provided by data security professionals with top certifications such as CISA, CISSP, and GIAC, can help your company to audit your procedures and governance policies and assess your WAN architecture to allow you to implement the highest level of security for your an at-home workforce.
