Security and Compliance for Teleworkers
Work-from-Home (WFH) staff members commonly utilize their own computing devices and often work in an unsecured physical area. This increases their vulnerability to cyber attacks and calls for careful configuration of corporate firewalls, anti-malware tools, MFA-based identity verification, remote monitoring, intensive user education, and the development of security policies built on leading practices. Progent's veteran team of cybersecurity support experts can assist your business to design, deploy and maintain a compliant security solution that protects vital IT resources in networks that incorporate telecommuters.
Firewalls allow companies to create a network environment that can be safely accessed by on-premises users and by telecommuters, mobile employees, vendors, clients, and other stakeholders. Next-generation firewall devices permit you to configure and control appropriate permissions to different classes of users and to expand your network and modify your security profile as your business evolves and as cyber threats grow more complex. Progent supports both current and older security devices from all leading vendors like Cisco, Palo Alto Networks, Check Point, Juniper, SonicWall and Fortinet.

Remote Endpoint Security Monitoring makes it easy to track the disparate computers used by telecommuters and either block or spot and respond to the latest cyber attacks such as ransomware. With ProSight Active Security Monitoring services, a lightweight software agent is put on every secured endpoint, watching all activity and using state-of-the-art behavioral threat analysis from SentinelOne to detect zero-day attacks before they can spread. When a cyberattack is discovered, ProSight Active Security Monitoring immediately isolates the impacted endpoint device from the network to contain the threat. Since the ProSight Active Security Monitoring software agent is self-contained, endpoint devices stay protected even when they are not connected to the Internet. Progent is a SentinelOne Partner, dealer, and integrator. To learn more about ProSight ASM, see remote endpoint monitoring for at-home workers.
Progent's Duo MFA services utilize Cisco's Duo technology to defend against stolen passwords by using two-factor authentication. Duo enables single-tap identity verification with iOS, Google Android, and other personal devices. With 2FA, when you log into a secured online account and enter your password you are asked to confirm your identity via a unit that only you possess and that uses a different network channel. A wide selection of out-of-band devices can be utilized as this second form of authentication including a smartphone or wearable, a hardware/software token, a landline telephone, etc. You can register several verification devices.
