Security for Teleworkers
Work-from-Home employees typically utilize their personal computing devices and usually work in a poorly secured physical environment. This situation multiplies their vulnerability to malware attacks and requires judicious deployment of firewalls, AV tools, MFA-based identity verification, remote endpoint monitoring, thorough user training, and the development of security policies based on best practices. Progent's veteran team of IT security support consultants can help you to design, implement and maintain a compliant security solution that protects vital information assets in environments that incorporate remote workers.

Firewall Integration Services for At-Home WorkersFirewalls enable you to build a network environment that can be securely accessed by on-premises users and by an at-home workforce, mobile users, suppliers, customers, and the public. Modern firewall appliances permit you to configure and manage appropriate access rights to various groups of users and to scale your network and modify your security as your business evolves and as cyber threats become more sophisticated. Progent works with both new and older firewall devices from all major vendors including Cisco, Palo Alto Networks, WatchGuard, Juniper, SonicWall and Fortinet.

Remote Security Monitoring for TeleworkersOnline Endpoint Security Monitoring makes it easy to watch over the disparate devices utilized by at-home workers and either block or spot and respond to the latest threats like ransomware. With Progent's ProSight Active Security Monitoring services, a small-footprint software agent is installed on each protected endpoint, watching all activity and using state-of-the-art behavioral threat analysis from SentinelOne to identify zero-day attacks on arrival. When a cyberattack is discovered, ProSight ASM instantly disconnects the impacted endpoint from the corporate network to quarantine the malware. Since the ProSight Active Security Monitoring software agent is autonomous, endpoint devices remain protected even if they are offline. Progent is a SentinelOne Partner, dealer, and integrator.

Two-factor Authentication Services for At-Home WorkersProgent's Duo authentication Services utilize Cisco's Duo cloud technology to protect against stolen passwords through the use of two-factor authentication. Duo enables single-tap identity verification on iOS, Google Android, and other out-of-band devices. With 2FA, whenever you log into a protected application and give your password you are requested to verify your identity on a unit that only you possess and that is accessed using a different network channel. A wide range of out-of-band devices can be utilized as this second form of authentication including a smartphone or watch, a hardware token, a landline telephone, etc. You can designate multiple verification devices.
