Cybersecurity for Remote Workers
Work-from-Home employees commonly utilize their personal computing devices and usually operate in an unsecured physical area. This situation increases their vulnerability to malware attacks and requires judicious deployment of corporate firewalls, AV tools, multi-factor authentication, remote endpoint monitoring, intensive user education, and the development of policies built on best practices. Progent's seasoned team of cybersecurity solutions experts can help your business to design, deploy and manage a compliant security solution that protects vital IT resources in networks that include remote workers.

Firewall Integration Services for At-Home WorkersFirewalls enable you to build a network environment that can be safely utilized by local users and by teleworkers, mobile workers, vendors, clients, and the public. Next-generation firewall devices allow you to assign and control appropriate access rights to different groups of users and to expand your IT network and adjust your security as your company evolves and as cyber threats become increasingly sophisticated.

Remote Endpoint Monitoring and Management Services for TelecommutersRemote Endpoint Monitoring makes it possible to watch over the disparate devices utilized by teleworkers and either reject or spot and respond to modern cyber attacks like ransomware. With ProSight Active Security Monitoring services, a lightweight agent is installed on every secured endpoint, watching all activity and utilizing state-of-the-art behavioral threat analysis from SentinelOne to detect zero-day threats before they can spread. When an attack is spotted, ProSight Active Security Monitoring instantly disconnects the targeted device from the network to quarantine the malware. Since the ProSight Active Security Monitoring agent is autonomous, endpoints remain protected even when they are disconnected from the Internet.

Two-factor Authentication Services for TelecommutersProgent's Duo authentication managed services incorporate Cisco's Duo technology to defend against compromised passwords by using two-factor authentication (2FA). Duo enables one-tap identity verification on Apple iOS, Google Android, and other personal devices. Using Duo 2FA, whenever you log into a protected application and give your password you are requested to confirm who you are on a device that only you possess and that uses a separate network channel. A wide range of out-of-band devices can be utilized for this added means of ID validation such as a smartphone or wearable, a hardware/software token, a landline telephone, etc. You can register several validation devices. For more information about ProSight Duo identity validation services, refer to Cisco Duo MFA two-factor authentication services for remote workers.
