Security and Compliance for Remote Workers
Work-from-Home employees commonly use their personal computers and often work in an unsecured physical space. This multiplies their susceptibility to malware attacks and calls for careful deployment of corporate firewalls, anti-malware tools, multi-factor authentication, remote monitoring, extensive end-user education, and the development of security policies built on leading practices. Progent's seasoned team of cybersecurity support consultants can assist your business to plan, configure and manage an effective cybersecurity solution that guards critical information assets in networks that incorporate telecommuters.

Firewall Integration Services for At-Home WorkersFirewalls allow companies to create a network environment that can be securely accessed by local users and by an at-home workforce, mobile users, vendors, customers, and the public. Modern firewall appliances allow you to configure and control appropriate access rights to various classes of users and to expand your network and modify your cybersecurity posture as your company evolves and as cyber threats become increasingly sophisticated. Progent works with both new and legacy firewall appliances from all leading manufacturers like Cisco, Palo Alto Networks, Check Point, Juniper, SonicWall and Fortinet.

Remote Endpoint Monitoring and Management for TelecommutersRemote Endpoint Security Monitoring makes it possible to track the disparate devices utilized by at-home workers and either reject or identify and mitigate modern threats like ransomware. With Progent's ProSight Active Security Monitoring services, a lightweight software agent is installed on each protected endpoint, monitoring all activity and using advanced machine learning from SentinelOne to identify new attacks at inception. When an attack is discovered, ProSight Active Security Monitoring immediately disconnects the infected endpoint from the corporate network to quarantine the malware. Since the ProSight ASM agent is self-contained, endpoints stay protected even when they are not connected to the Internet. Progent is a SentinelOne Partner, reseller, and integrator. To find out more about ProSight ASM, go to remote endpoint monitoring for an at-home workforce.

Two-factor Authentication (2FA) Services for TelecommutersProgent's Duo authentication managed services incorporate Cisco's Duo cloud technology to defend against password theft through the use of two-factor authentication. Duo enables one-tap identity confirmation with iOS, Android, and other out-of-band devices. Using 2FA, when you sign into a secured application and give your password you are requested to confirm who you are via a unit that only you have and that is accessed using a different ("out-of-band") network channel. A wide range of devices can be utilized for this second form of authentication including an iPhone or Android or watch, a hardware/software token, a landline phone, etc. You may designate several verification devices. For details about Duo identity authentication services, visit Cisco Duo MFA two-factor authentication services for teleworkers.

Security Audit Services for At-Home WorkersSecurity Audits can evaluate the vulnerability of your network to all types of outside and internal security attacks for a network that includes an at-home workforce. Progent can deploy remote, automated security inventory software for rapidly and economically detecting a wide variety of security gaps that can be surfaced via the Internet. Progent's security assessment experts, which can be provided by security professionals with top credentials such as CISA, ISSAP, and GIAC, can assist your business to evaluate your operations and governance policies and review your WAN infrastructure to enable you to implement the highest level of protection for your an at-home workforce.
