Security and Compliance for Teleworkers
At-home workers commonly use their personal equipment and work in an unsecured environment. This worsens their vulnerability to cyber attacks and calls for careful use of firewalls, remote security monitoring, and the enforcement of policies in compliance with best practices. Progent's seasoned roster of certified data security professionals can assist your company to plan, deploy and manage a modern cybersecurity solution that protects critical data in IT networks that include teleworkers.
- Firewalls allow you to build a network environment that can be safely utilized by on-premises users and by an at-home workforce, mobile workers, suppliers, customers, and the public. Next-generation firewall devices allow you to configure and control appropriate access rights to different classes of users and to expand your network and adjust your security as your company evolves and as cyber threats become more sophisticated. Progent supports both new and legacy firewall devices from all major manufacturers like Cisco, Palo Alto Networks, Check Point, Juniper, SonicWall and Fortinet. To learn more about Progent's firewall configuration services, see firewall support services.
- Remote Endpoint Security Monitoring makes it easy to watch over the various computers used by telecommuters and either block or identify and respond to the latest cyber attacks like ransomware. With ProSight Active Security Monitoring (ASM) services, a small-footprint agent is put on each secured endpoint device, watching all activity and using advanced behavioral threat analysis to identify zero-day attacks before they can spread. When a cyberattack is spotted, ProSight Active Security Monitoring instantly disconnects the targeted device from the corporate network to contain the threat. Because the ProSight ASM software agent is self-contained, endpoint devices remain secure even when they are not connected to the Internet. For more information about ProSight ASM, visit remote endpoint security monitoring for telecommuters.
- Security Audits can evaluate the vulnerability of your information system to all classes of external and local security threats for an environment that incorporates at-home workers. Progent can run remote, automated cybersecurity analysis software for rapidly and economically detecting a broad range of security weaknesses that can be surfaced over the Internet. Progent's endpoint security assessment consulting services, which can be managed by network security experts with top certifications including CISM, CISSP, and GIAC, can assist your company to audit your procedures and policies and assess your network architecture to allow you to implement top-level security for your at-home workers.
