Security for Teleworkers
Teleworkers commonly run their personal computing devices and work in a physically unsecured environment. This worsens their vulnerability to cyber threats and calls for careful deployment of security appliances, remote endpoint monitoring, and the creation of policies that follow leading practices. Progent's veteran roster of certified cybersecurity professionals can assist your organization to design, implement and administer a modern cybersecurity environment that guards sensitive data in networks that include telecommuters.

  • Firewalls allow companies to create a network that can be safely accessed by local users as well as by teleworkers, mobile employees, vendors, clients, and the public. Next-generation firewall devices allow you to assign and manage different permissions to various groups of users and to expand your IT network and adjust your security as your business evolves and as network attacks grow increasingly sophisticated. Progent supports both current and legacy security devices from all leading manufacturers like Cisco, Palo Alto Networks, WatchGuard, Juniper, SonicWall and Fortinet. To learn more about Progent's firewall integration expertise, see firewall configuration and support services.
  • Remote Endpoint Monitoring makes it easy to watch over the various devices used by an at-home workforce and either block or identify and respond to the latest threats such as ransomware. With ProSight Active Security Monitoring (ASM) services, a small-footprint software agent is installed on every secured endpoint, watching all activity and utilizing state-of-the-art AI technology to detect new attacks before they can spread. When a cyberattack is discovered, ProSight ASM immediately disconnects the impacted endpoint device from the corporate network to contain the threat. Since the ProSight ASM agent is autonomous, endpoints remain secure even if they are offline. For more information about ProSight ASM, go to remote endpoint security monitoring for teleworkers.
  • Security Audits can evaluate the vulnerability of your information system to all classes of external and local security threats for an environment that includes telecommuters. Progent can run remote, automated security analysis scanning for rapidly and affordably uncovering a wide variety of security gaps that can be found via the Internet. Progent's endpoint security assessment consulting services, which can be managed by security professionals with top credentials including CISM, ISSAP, and GIAC, can help your company to audit your procedures and governance policies and review your IT architecture to allow you to design the highest level of security for your an at-home workforce.
