Security and Compliance for Telecommuters
Work-from-Home workers typically use their personal computing devices and usually work in a poorly secured physical environment. This situation multiplies their vulnerability to malware threats and requires careful deployment of firewalls, anti-malware tools, multi-factor authentication, remote endpoint monitoring, extensive end-user training, and the creation of security policies based on leading practices. Progent's seasoned group of data security support consultants can help your business to design, configure and manage an effective security solution that protects vital IT resources in networks that incorporate remote workers.

Firewall Integration Services for At-Home WorkersFirewalls enable companies to build a network environment that can be securely 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 configure and control different permissions to different groups of users and to scale your network and adjust your security as your business evolves and as network attacks grow more complex. Progent works with both current and legacy firewall devices from all major vendors including Cisco, Palo Alto Networks, Check Point, Juniper, and Fortinet. For more information about Progent's firewall configuration expertise, refer to firewall support expertise.

Remote Endpoint Monitoring for TelecommutersOnline Endpoint Security Monitoring makes it possible to track the various devices utilized by an at-home workforce and either reject or spot and respond to the latest cyber attacks such as ransomware. With ProSight Active Security Monitoring services, a small-footprint agent is put on each protected endpoint, watching all activity and using advanced AI technology from SentinelOne to identify zero-day attacks before they can spread. When an attack is spotted, ProSight ASM instantly disconnects the impacted endpoint device from the corporate network to quarantine the malware. Since the ProSight ASM agent is autonomous, endpoint devices remain protected even if they are disconnected from the Internet. Progent is a SentinelOne Partner, dealer, and integrator.

Two-factor Authentication Services for Remote WorkersProgent's Duo authentication services utilize Cisco's Duo cloud technology to defend against stolen passwords by using two-factor authentication (2FA). Duo supports one-tap identity confirmation on Apple iOS, Google Android, and other personal devices. With Duo 2FA, whenever you sign into a secured application and give your password you are asked to verify your identity on a unit that only you have and that uses a separate network channel. A broad selection of devices can be used for this added means of authentication such as an iPhone or Android or watch, a hardware token, a landline phone, etc. You can designate several verification devices.

Security Audit Services for At-Home WorkersSecurity Audits can evaluate the vulnerability of your network to all types of outside and internal security threats for a network that incorporates at-home workers. Progent can run remote, automated security analysis software for quickly and economically uncovering a broad range of security holes that can be found over the Internet.
