Security for Teleworkers
At-home workers often use their own equipment and work in an unsecured environment. This increases their exposure to cyber threats and calls for judicious use of security appliances, remote endpoint monitoring, and the enforcement of policies based on best practices. Progent's seasoned team of certified cybersecurity professionals can assist you to design, implement and manage a compliant security solution that guards critical data in networks that include at-home workers.

  • Firewalls allow companies to build a network that can be safely accessed by on-premises users and by an at-home workforce, mobile workers, suppliers, customers, and the public. Modern firewall devices allow you to configure and manage appropriate access rights to different groups of users and to scale your IT network and adjust your security profile as your company evolves and as network attacks become increasingly complex. Progent supports both new and older firewall appliances from all leading manufacturers like Cisco, Palo Alto Networks, Check Point, Juniper, and Fortinet.

  • Remote Endpoint Security Monitoring makes it easy to watch over the various devices used by telecommuters and either reject or identify and mitigate the latest cyber attacks such as ransomware. With ProSight Active Security Monitoring services, a small-footprint software agent is put on every protected endpoint device, monitoring all activity and using state-of-the-art behavioral threat analysis to detect zero-day attacks at inception. When a cyberattack is spotted, ProSight ASM immediately isolates the targeted endpoint device from the network to contain the malware. Because the ProSight Active Security Monitoring agent is autonomous, endpoint devices stay protected even if they are disconnected from the Internet. To find out more about ProSight ASM, see remote endpoint monitoring for at-home workers.
  • Security Audits can evaluate the exposure of your network to all types of outside and internal security threats for an environment that includes teleworkers. Progent can run remote, automated security analysis scanning for quickly and affordably uncovering a wide variety of security weaknesses that can be surfaced over the Internet. Progent's endpoint security assessment experts, which can be managed by data security professionals with top credentials such as CISM, ISSAP, and GIAC, can help your company to audit your processes and governance policies and assess your network infrastructure to allow you to design the highest level of protection for your an at-home workforce.
