Cybersecurity for Teleworkers
Teleworkers often use their personal computing devices and work in an unsecured space. This increases their exposure to cyber threats and requires judicious use of security appliances, remote security monitoring, and the enforcement of policies in compliance with best practices. Progent's seasoned team of certified data security professionals can help your business to plan, implement and administer a modern cybersecurity solution that protects sensitive information in IT networks that include telecommuters.
- Firewalls enable companies to build a network that can be safely accessed by on-premises users as well as by teleworkers, mobile users, vendors, clients, and the public. Next-generation firewall devices permit you to assign and control appropriate permissions to various groups of users and to scale your IT network and adjust your security profile as your company evolves and as cyber threats grow increasingly sophisticated. Progent supports both new and legacy firewall devices from all leading vendors like Cisco, Palo Alto Networks, WatchGuard, Juniper, SonicWall and Fortinet.

- Online Endpoint Security Monitoring makes it possible to track the various computers used by telecommuters and either reject or spot and mitigate the latest cyber attacks like ransomware. With ProSight Active Security Monitoring (ASM) services, a lightweight software agent is put on each secured endpoint device, monitoring all activity and using state-of-the-art behavioral threat analysis to detect new attacks at inception. When an attack is spotted, ProSight Active Security Monitoring immediately disconnects the impacted endpoint from the corporate network to quarantine the malware. Since the ProSight ASM agent is self-contained, endpoints remain protected even when they are disconnected from the Internet.

- Security Audits can assess the vulnerability of your information system to all classes of external and internal security threats for a network that includes at-home workers. Progent can run remote, automated cybersecurity inventory scanning for quickly and economically uncovering a wide variety of security holes that can be surfaced over the Internet. Progent's endpoint security assessment consulting services, which can be managed by security experts with advanced credentials including CISM, CISSP, and GIAC, can assist your company to audit your procedures and policies and assess your WAN infrastructure to enable you to design the highest level of security for your teleworkers.
