Security for Telecommuters
Work-from-Home (WFH) workers commonly use their personal computers and usually work in a poorly secured physical area. This situation increases their vulnerability to cyber attacks and calls for judicious deployment of corporate firewalls, AV tools, multi-factor authentication, remote endpoint monitoring, thorough end-user education, and the creation of security policies based on leading practices. Progent's veteran group of data security solutions experts can assist your business to plan, implement and maintain an effective cybersecurity solution that guards vital IT resources in networks that incorporate an at-home workforce.

Firewall Integration Services for At-Home WorkersFirewalls allow companies to build a network environment that can be safely utilized by local users as well as by teleworkers, mobile users, vendors, customers, and the public. Modern firewall devices permit you to assign and control different access rights to different groups of users and to scale your network and adjust your cybersecurity posture as your company evolves and as network attacks grow more complex. Progent supports both new and legacy firewall appliances from all major manufacturers like Cisco, Palo Alto Networks, WatchGuard, Juniper, SonicWall and Fortinet.

Remote Security Monitoring for TelecommutersOnline Endpoint Monitoring makes it easy to watch over the disparate computers used by remote workers and either block or identify and mitigate the latest threats such as ransomware. With ProSight Active Security Monitoring (ASM) services, a small-footprint software agent is put on every protected endpoint device, watching all activity and utilizing state-of-the-art machine learning and full execution context from SentinelOne to detect zero-day threats before they can spread. When an attack is discovered, ProSight ASM immediately isolates the impacted endpoint from the corporate network to contain the malware. Since the ProSight ASM software agent is autonomous, endpoints remain protected even when they are not connected to the Internet. Progent is a SentinelOne Partner, reseller, and integrator.
