Security for At-Home Workers
Work-from-Home (WFH) staff members typically use their personal devices and often operate in a poorly secured physical environment. This multiplies their susceptibility to cyber threats and requires careful configuration of firewalls, anti-malware tools, multi-factor authentication, remote endpoint monitoring, extensive end-user education, and the development of security policies built on leading practices. Progent's veteran roster of IT security support consultants can assist you to plan, deploy and maintain an effective cybersecurity solution that protects vital information resources in networks that incorporate an at-home workforce.

Firewall Integration Services for At-Home WorkersFirewalls enable you to build a network that can be safely utilized by on-premises users as well as by at-home workers, mobile users, suppliers, clients, and the public. Next-generation firewall appliances permit you to assign and control different access rights to various classes of users and to scale your IT network and modify your security as your company evolves and as network attacks become more complex. Progent works with both new and legacy firewall devices from all major vendors including Cisco, Palo Alto Networks, Check Point, Juniper, SonicWall and Fortinet.

Remote Endpoint Monitoring for At-Home WorkersRemote Endpoint Security Monitoring makes it possible to track the various computers used by remote workers and either block or spot and mitigate the latest threats like ransomware. With Progent's ProSight Active Security Monitoring services, a small-footprint software agent is put on every protected endpoint, watching all activity and utilizing advanced behavioral threat analysis from SentinelOne to identify zero-day attacks at inception. When a cyberattack is discovered, ProSight Active Security Monitoring instantly isolates the targeted endpoint device from the network to quarantine the malware. Because the ProSight ASM software agent is autonomous, endpoint devices remain secure even when they are not connected to the Internet. Progent is a SentinelOne Partner, reseller, and integrator.

Two-factor Authentication (2FA) Services for TelecommutersProgent's Duo authentication Service Plans incorporate Cisco's Duo cloud technology to protect against compromised passwords by using two-factor authentication (2FA). Duo enables single-tap identity confirmation on Apple iOS, Android, and other out-of-band devices. Using 2FA, when you sign into a protected application and give your password you are requested to confirm your identity via a device that only you have and that uses a separate network channel. A wide selection of out-of-band devices can be used as this second means of authentication such as a smartphone or wearable, a hardware/software token, a landline telephone, etc. You may register multiple validation devices.
