Security for Teleworkers
At-home workers often use their own computing devices and work in an unsecured environment. This worsens their exposure to cyber attacks and demands judicious deployment of security appliances, remote monitoring, and the creation of security policies based on best practices. Progent's seasoned roster of certified cybersecurity experts can help your company to design, implement and manage a modern security solution that protects vital data in IT networks that include telecommuters.
Firewalls allow companies to create a network that can be safely utilized by on-premises users as well as by teleworkers, mobile users, suppliers, clients, and the public. Next-generation firewall appliances permit you to assign and control appropriate permissions to different groups of users and to scale your IT network and adjust your security profile as your company evolves and as cyber threats grow increasingly sophisticated. Progent supports both current and legacy security appliances from all leading vendors like Cisco, Palo Alto Networks, WatchGuard, Juniper, and Fortinet.

Online Endpoint Security Monitoring makes it easy to track the disparate devices utilized by at-home workers and either reject or identify and mitigate modern cyber attacks such as ransomware. With ProSight Active Security Monitoring (ASM) services, a lightweight software agent is installed on every protected endpoint, monitoring all activity and using advanced AI technology to detect new attacks before they can spread. When a cyberattack is discovered, ProSight ASM immediately isolates the targeted device from the network to contain the malware. Because the ProSight Active Security Monitoring software agent is self-contained, endpoints remain protected even when they are offline. To find out more about ProSight Active Security Monitoring, go to remote endpoint security monitoring for at-home workers.
Progent's Duo authentication service plans incorporate Cisco's Duo cloud technology to defend against compromised passwords through the use of two-factor authentication (2FA). Duo enables single-tap identity confirmation on 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 your identity on a unit that only you have and that is accessed using a separate network channel. A wide selection of out-of-band devices can be used for this added means of authentication such as an iPhone or Android or watch, a hardware/software token, a landline phone, etc. You can designate multiple verification devices. To learn more about ProSight Duo two-factor identity validation services, go to Cisco Duo MFA two-factor authentication (2FA) services for at-home workers.
Security Audits can assess the vulnerability of your information system to all classes of external and internal security attacks for an environment that incorporates telecommuters. Progent can run remote, automated security inventory software for quickly and affordably uncovering a wide variety of security weaknesses that can be found via the Internet. Progent's endpoint security assessment consulting services, which can be provided by security professionals with top certifications including CISM, CISSP, and GIAC, can assist your business to evaluate your workflows and governance policies and assess your network infrastructure to allow you to design top-level security for your teleworkers.
