Security for At-Home Workers
Work-from-Home staff members commonly use their personal computing devices and usually work in a poorly secured physical space. This situation multiplies their susceptibility to cyber attacks and calls for careful deployment of firewalls, anti-malware tools, MFA-based identity verification, remote endpoint monitoring, extensive user education, and the development of policies built on best practices. Progent's seasoned team of IT security support consultants can assist your business to plan, implement and manage an effective security solution that protects vital information resources in environments that include telecommuters.
Firewalls allow companies to create a network environment that can be securely accessed by local users and by telecommuters, mobile workers, vendors, customers, and other stakeholders. Modern firewall appliances permit you to configure and manage appropriate access rights to different groups of users and to expand your IT network and modify your security as your business evolves and as cyber threats become more complex. Progent supports both new and older security devices from all major manufacturers like Cisco, Palo Alto Networks, Check Point, Juniper, and Fortinet. For details about Progent's firewall integration expertise, see firewall integration and support services.
Online Endpoint Security Monitoring makes it easy to watch over the various devices utilized by telecommuters and either block or spot and mitigate the latest threats such as ransomware. With Progent's ProSight Active Security Monitoring (ASM) services, a small-footprint agent is put on each protected endpoint, monitoring all activity and using state-of-the-art behavioral threat analysis from SentinelOne to identify zero-day attacks on arrival. When an attack is discovered, ProSight ASM immediately disconnects the impacted device from the network to contain the malware. Since the ProSight Active Security Monitoring agent is self-contained, endpoints stay protected even when they are offline. Progent is a SentinelOne Partner, reseller, and integrator. For more information about ProSight Active Security Monitoring, see remote endpoint monitoring for an at-home workforce.
Progent's Duo MFA Services utilize Cisco's Duo cloud technology to defend against stolen passwords through the use of two-factor authentication (2FA). Duo enables one-tap identity verification on iOS, Android, and other out-of-band devices. Using 2FA, when you log into a protected online account and give your password you are asked to confirm who you are via a unit that only you possess and that is accessed using a separate network channel. A wide range of out-of-band devices can be used for this second means of ID validation such as an iPhone or Android or watch, a hardware token, a landline phone, etc. You may register multiple verification devices. For more information about ProSight Duo two-factor identity authentication services, refer to Duo MFA two-factor authentication (2FA) services for remote workers.
