In case your Arkansas small business is located some distance from more populated urban areas including Little Rock, Fort Smith, or Fayetteville, help from nearby accredited security experts is often limited when you have an emergency.

By contacting Progent's remote support, you can get in touch with a certified security consultant ready to deliver help whenever you have to have it to get your information system on line and recover your data.

Progent can also assist you to outsource spam filtering and protection from e-mail-based security threats. Email Guard is Progent's email security platform that incorporates the technology of top data security companies to deliver centralized management and comprehensive protection for your email traffic. The hybrid architecture of Progent's Email Guard combines cloud-based filtering with a local gateway appliance to provide advanced defense against spam, viruses, Denial of Service Attacks, Directory Harvest Attacks, and other email-based threats. The cloud filter acts as a first line of defense and blocks the vast majority of unwanted email from making it to your network firewall. This reduces your exposure to inbound attacks and conserves network bandwidth and storage space. Email Guard's onsite security gateway device provides a deeper level of inspection for inbound email. For outgoing email, the on-premises gateway offers AV and anti-spam protection, policy-based Data Loss Prevention, and encryption. The onsite gateway can also help Exchange Server to monitor and protect internal email that stays inside your security perimeter.

With Progent's Internal Security Inventory Scan, a security expert runs a system scan from a secure machine within your company firewall to determine your exposure to internal assaults.

The process is managed by an engineer who has earned high-level security credentials and who generates a document that summarizes and interprets the data captured by the security scan and suggests cost-effective remediation if called for.
