Security for Telecommuters
Teleworkers commonly use their own computing devices and work in an unsecured area. This increases their exposure to cyber threats and demands careful deployment of firewalls, remote monitoring, and the enforcement of security policies that adhere to leading practices. Progent's seasoned roster of certified data security experts can assist your organization to plan, deploy and administer a compliant security environment that protects critical information in IT networks that include remote workers.
- Firewalls allow companies to build a network that can be safely utilized by local users as well as by teleworkers, mobile users, suppliers, clients, and other stakeholders. Next-generation firewall devices permit you to configure and control different permissions to various classes of users and to scale your network and adjust your security as your business evolves and as cyber threats grow more complex. Progent supports both new and older security devices from all major vendors including Cisco, Palo Alto Networks, Check Point, Juniper, and Fortinet.

- Online Endpoint Security Monitoring makes it easy to watch over the various devices utilized by at-home workers and either block or spot and respond to the latest cyber attacks like ransomware. With Progent's ProSight Active Security Monitoring services, a lightweight software agent is put on every secured endpoint, watching all activity and using advanced machine learning to detect new attacks on arrival. When a cyberattack is spotted, ProSight Active Security Monitoring immediately disconnects the targeted endpoint from the corporate network to contain the malware. Since the ProSight ASM agent is autonomous, endpoint devices remain secure even when they are disconnected from the Internet. For more information about ProSight Active Security Monitoring, see remote endpoint security monitoring for at-home workers.
- Security Audits can assess the exposure of your information system to all types of external and internal security attacks for an environment that incorporates an at-home workforce. Progent can deploy online, automated security inventory scanning for quickly and affordably detecting a broad range of security gaps that can be found over the Internet. Progent's endpoint security assessment experts, which can be managed by data security professionals with advanced certifications including CISM, ISSAP, and GIAC, can help your business to evaluate your operations and policies and assess your WAN infrastructure to enable you to implement top-level security for your remote workers.
