Security and Compliance for Telecommuters
At-home staff members commonly utilize their own computing devices and often work in a poorly secured physical environment. This situation multiplies their susceptibility to cyber threats and calls for judicious configuration of corporate firewalls, anti-malware tools, multi-factor authentication, remote endpoint monitoring, extensive end-user training, and the development of security policies based on leading practices. Progent's seasoned roster of IT security solutions experts can help you to plan, deploy and manage an effective security solution that guards critical IT assets in networks that incorporate telecommuters.

Firewall Integration Services for At-Home WorkersFirewalls allow you to build a network environment that can be securely utilized by on-premises users as well as by at-home workers, mobile employees, vendors, clients, and the public. Modern firewall devices allow you to configure and control appropriate permissions to various classes of users and to expand your IT network and adjust your cybersecurity posture as your business evolves and as network attacks grow increasingly sophisticated. Progent supports both new and legacy security appliances from all leading vendors including Cisco, Palo Alto Networks, Check Point, Juniper, and Fortinet.

Remote Endpoint Monitoring and Management Services for TeleworkersRemote Endpoint Monitoring makes it possible to watch over the various devices used by at-home workers and either block or spot and respond to modern threats like ransomware. With ProSight Active Security Monitoring services, a lightweight software agent is installed on every secured endpoint, watching all activity and utilizing advanced AI technology from SentinelOne to detect zero-day attacks before they can spread. When a cyberattack is spotted, ProSight Active Security Monitoring immediately disconnects the targeted device from the corporate network to contain the malware. Because the ProSight ASM software agent is autonomous, endpoints remain protected even if they are offline. For more information about ProSight ASM, go to remote endpoint security monitoring for at-home workers.

Two-factor Authentication Services for TelecommutersProgent's Duo authentication service plans utilize Cisco's Duo cloud technology to defend against stolen passwords through the use of two-factor authentication. Duo supports one-tap identity confirmation with iOS, Google Android, and other personal devices. Using 2FA, whenever you log into a protected application and enter your password you are requested to verify your identity via a device that only you possess and that is accessed using a different ("out-of-band") network channel. A broad range of devices can be utilized as this added means of authentication including a smartphone or watch, a hardware/software token, a landline phone, etc. You may register multiple validation devices.

Security Audit Services for At-Home WorkersSecurity Audits can assess the exposure of your information system to all types of outside and local security threats for a network that incorporates at-home workers. Progent can deploy remote, automated security inventory software for quickly and economically uncovering a wide variety of security weaknesses that can be found over the Internet. Progent's security assessment experts, which can be managed by security experts with top certifications such as CISM, CISSP, and GIAC, can assist your company to evaluate your operations and policies and assess your IT infrastructure to allow you to implement top-level security for your an at-home workforce.
