Cybersecurity for Telecommuters
Work-from-Home employees commonly utilize their own computers and usually work in an unsecured physical space. This increases their vulnerability to cyber threats and calls for judicious configuration of corporate firewalls, AV tools, multi-factor authentication, remote monitoring, thorough end-user training, and the development of security policies built on leading practices. Progent's seasoned roster of data security support consultants can help your business to design, deploy and maintain a compliant cybersecurity solution that guards vital IT assets in networks that include an at-home workforce.
Firewalls enable you to build a network that can be securely accessed by local users and by an at-home workforce, mobile users, suppliers, clients, and other stakeholders. Modern firewall appliances allow you to assign and manage appropriate permissions to different groups of users and to expand your network and modify your security profile as your company evolves and as network attacks grow more complex. Progent supports both current and legacy security devices from all major vendors including Cisco, Palo Alto Networks, WatchGuard, Juniper, SonicWall and Fortinet.

Progent's Duo authentication managed services incorporate Cisco's Duo technology to defend against stolen passwords by using two-factor authentication (2FA). Duo enables one-tap identity verification with Apple iOS, Android, and other personal devices. Using 2FA, whenever you log into a protected application and give your password you are requested to verify your identity via a device that only you possess and that is accessed using a different network channel. A wide range of devices can be utilized for this added means of authentication such as a smartphone or wearable, a hardware token, a landline telephone, etc. You may register multiple validation devices.
