Security for Remote Workers
Telecommuters commonly use their personal computing devices and work in an unsecured area. This worsens their vulnerability to cyber attacks and calls for careful use of firewalls, remote endpoint monitoring, and the creation of policies that adhere to leading practices. Progent's seasoned roster of certified cybersecurity professionals can assist you to plan, deploy and administer a modern cybersecurity solution that safeguards vital information in IT networks that incorporate at-home workers.
- Firewalls allow you to build a network environment that can be securely accessed by local users and by at-home workers, mobile workers, suppliers, clients, and the public. Modern firewall appliances permit you to assign and manage different permissions to various groups of users and to scale your network and adjust your security as your business evolves and as network attacks grow more sophisticated. Progent supports both new and older firewall appliances from all leading vendors like Cisco, Palo Alto Networks, WatchGuard, Juniper, SonicWall and Fortinet. For more information about Progent's firewall configuration expertise, refer to firewall configuration and support services.
- Online Endpoint Monitoring makes it possible to track the various computers utilized by telecommuters and either block or identify and respond to the latest cyber attacks like ransomware. With ProSight Active Security Monitoring services, a small-footprint software agent is installed on each secured endpoint, monitoring all activity and using advanced machine learning to identify new threats on arrival. When a cyberattack is discovered, ProSight ASM immediately isolates the infected endpoint device from the network to quarantine the threat. Since the ProSight Active Security Monitoring agent is self-contained, endpoint devices stay protected even when 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 vulnerability of your information system to all classes of external and internal security attacks for an environment that incorporates an at-home workforce. Progent can deploy online, automated security analysis scanning for rapidly and economically detecting a wide variety of security weaknesses that can be surfaced over the Internet. Progent's security audit consulting services, which can be managed by network security experts with advanced certifications such as CISA, CISSP, and GIAC, can assist you to audit your procedures and governance policies and review your WAN infrastructure to allow you to design the highest level of protection for your teleworkers.
