Cybersecurity for Remote Workers
Work-from-Home workers commonly use their own devices and often operate in a poorly secured physical area. This situation multiplies their susceptibility to malware attacks and calls for judicious deployment of firewalls, anti-malware tools, MFA-based identity verification, remote endpoint monitoring, intensive user training, and the development of policies built on leading practices. Progent's veteran roster of cybersecurity solutions experts can help your business to plan, deploy and maintain a compliant cybersecurity solution that guards critical IT resources in environments that incorporate an at-home workforce.
Firewalls enable you to build a network environment that can be securely utilized by local users as well as by at-home workers, mobile employees, vendors, customers, and other stakeholders. Next-generation firewall appliances allow you to configure and manage appropriate access rights to various groups of users and to expand your network and adjust your security as your business evolves and as cyber threats become increasingly complex. Progent works with both current and legacy security appliances from all leading vendors including Cisco, Palo Alto Networks, WatchGuard, Juniper, and Fortinet.

Remote Endpoint Security Monitoring makes it easy to track the disparate devices utilized by teleworkers and either block or identify and respond to modern cyber attacks like ransomware. With ProSight Active Security Monitoring services, a small-footprint agent is installed on every protected endpoint device, monitoring all activity and using state-of-the-art machine learning and full execution context from SentinelOne to detect zero-day attacks at inception. When an attack is spotted, ProSight ASM instantly disconnects the targeted endpoint from the corporate network to contain the malware. Since the ProSight ASM software agent is autonomous, endpoint devices remain secure even if they are offline. Progent is a SentinelOne Partner, reseller, and integrator. For more information about ProSight ASM, visit remote endpoint monitoring for teleworkers.
Progent's Duo authentication Service Plans utilize Cisco's Duo technology to defend against password theft by using two-factor authentication (2FA). Duo enables single-tap identity verification on Apple iOS, Google Android, and other out-of-band devices. Using 2FA, when you sign into a protected application and give your password you are asked to confirm your identity on a unit that only you possess and that is accessed using a different network channel. A wide selection of devices can be used for this added means of ID validation such as an iPhone or Android or wearable, a hardware/software token, a landline phone, etc. You may designate several validation devices.
