Cybersecurity for Teleworkers
Work-from-Home (WFH) staff members commonly use their own computers and usually work in an unsecured physical environment. This situation increases their susceptibility to cyber attacks and calls for judicious deployment of corporate firewalls, anti-malware tools, multi-factor authentication, remote monitoring, thorough end-user education, and the development of policies based on best practices. Progent's veteran roster of data security solutions experts can help you to plan, deploy and maintain an effective security solution that guards critical IT assets in networks that include telecommuters.

Firewall Integration Services for At-Home WorkersFirewalls allow companies to build a network environment that can be safely accessed by on-premises users and by an at-home workforce, mobile employees, suppliers, customers, and the public. Next-generation firewall devices allow you to assign and manage different permissions to various classes of users and to scale your network and modify your security profile as your business evolves and as cyber threats become increasingly sophisticated. Progent supports both current and legacy firewall appliances from all leading manufacturers including Cisco, Palo Alto Networks, Check Point, Juniper, SonicWall and Fortinet.

Remote Endpoint Monitoring and Management for TelecommutersRemote Endpoint Monitoring makes it easy to watch over the various computers used by remote workers and either block or spot and mitigate modern threats like ransomware. With Progent's ProSight Active Security Monitoring (ASM) services, a small-footprint agent is put on every protected endpoint, watching all activity and using advanced AI technology from SentinelOne to detect zero-day threats at inception. When a cyberattack is spotted, ProSight Active Security Monitoring instantly disconnects the targeted endpoint device from the corporate network to quarantine the malware. Since the ProSight Active Security Monitoring software agent is self-contained, endpoint devices stay protected even when they are disconnected from the Internet. Progent is a SentinelOne Partner, dealer, and integrator. To learn more about ProSight ASM, go to remote endpoint security monitoring for at-home workers.

Two-factor Authentication (2FA) Services for Remote WorkersProgent's Duo authentication services utilize Cisco's Duo technology to defend against compromised passwords through the use of two-factor authentication. Duo supports single-tap identity verification on Apple iOS, Android, and other out-of-band devices. With 2FA, whenever you log into a secured online account and give your password you are requested to confirm your identity on a device that only you have and that uses a different ("out-of-band") network channel. A broad range of out-of-band devices can be utilized for this second means of ID validation such as a smartphone or watch, a hardware token, a landline telephone, etc. You may register multiple validation devices.
