Security for Remote Workers
At-home staff members typically use their personal devices and often work in an unsecured physical area. This situation increases their vulnerability to malware attacks and requires judicious deployment of firewalls, AV tools, MFA-based identity verification, remote endpoint monitoring, extensive user training, and the development of policies built on leading practices. Progent's seasoned group of IT security support consultants can help you to design, configure and manage a compliant cybersecurity solution that guards critical IT assets in networks that incorporate at-home workers.

Firewall Integration Services for At-Home WorkersFirewalls allow companies to build a network that can be securely accessed by local users as well as by at-home workers, mobile workers, suppliers, customers, and other stakeholders. Modern firewall appliances allow you to assign and control appropriate permissions to various classes of users and to expand your network and adjust your security profile as your business evolves and as cyber threats grow increasingly sophisticated. Progent supports both current and legacy firewall devices from all major manufacturers including Cisco, Palo Alto Networks, Check Point, Juniper, SonicWall and Fortinet.

Remote Endpoint Monitoring for TeleworkersRemote Endpoint Monitoring makes it possible to track the disparate computers utilized by at-home workers and either block or identify and mitigate modern threats like ransomware. With Progent's ProSight Active Security Monitoring services, a small-footprint software agent is installed on every protected endpoint, watching all activity and using advanced machine learning and full execution context from SentinelOne to detect new attacks before they can spread. When a cyberattack is discovered, ProSight ASM instantly isolates the impacted endpoint from the corporate network to contain the threat. Since the ProSight ASM software agent is autonomous, endpoints stay secure even when they are offline. Progent is a SentinelOne Partner, reseller, and integrator.

Two-factor Authentication Services for TelecommutersProgent's Duo authentication service plans utilize Cisco's Duo technology to defend against compromised passwords by using two-factor authentication (2FA). Duo enables single-tap identity verification on iOS, Google Android, and other personal devices. Using 2FA, when you sign into a protected online account and enter your password you are requested to confirm your identity via a unit that only you possess and that uses a different network channel. A wide range of devices can be utilized for this second form of authentication including an iPhone or Android or wearable, a hardware/software token, a landline phone, etc. You may register several verification devices. To find out more about Duo identity validation services, see Duo MFA two-factor authentication services for teleworkers.
