Cybersecurity for Teleworkers
Work-from-Home staff members commonly use their own computing devices and often operate in an unsecured physical environment. This situation multiplies their vulnerability to malware attacks and requires judicious configuration of corporate firewalls, AV tools, MFA-based identity verification, remote monitoring, intensive end-user education, and the development of policies based on leading practices. Progent's seasoned roster of IT security support experts can help your business to plan, implement and manage an effective cybersecurity solution that guards critical IT assets in environments that include at-home workers.

Firewall Integration Services for At-Home WorkersFirewalls enable companies to build a network environment that can be securely utilized by local users and by at-home workers, mobile users, suppliers, customers, and the public. Modern firewall devices allow you to configure and control different access rights to different groups of users and to expand your IT network and modify your security profile as your company evolves and as cyber threats grow increasingly sophisticated. Progent works with both current and older security devices from all major manufacturers including Cisco, Palo Alto Networks, Check Point, Juniper, and Fortinet. To learn more about Progent's firewall configuration expertise, refer to firewall support expertise.

Remote Endpoint Monitoring Services for TeleworkersRemote Endpoint Monitoring makes it possible to track the various devices utilized by teleworkers and either reject or spot and mitigate modern threats like ransomware. With ProSight Active Security Monitoring (ASM) services, a small-footprint agent is installed on every protected endpoint device, watching all activity and using state-of-the-art machine learning and full execution context from SentinelOne to identify new attacks at inception. When an attack is spotted, ProSight ASM immediately isolates the targeted device from the corporate network to contain the threat. Because the ProSight Active Security Monitoring agent is self-contained, endpoint devices stay secure even when they are not connected to the Internet. Progent is a SentinelOne Partner, dealer, and integrator. To learn more about ProSight ASM, see remote endpoint monitoring for telecommuters.

Two-factor Authentication (2FA) Services for TelecommutersProgent's Duo MFA service plans utilize Cisco's Duo cloud technology to protect against compromised passwords by using two-factor authentication. Duo enables one-tap identity verification on iOS, Google Android, and other personal devices. Using Duo 2FA, whenever you log into a secured online account and enter your password you are requested to confirm your identity via a unit that only you have and that uses a separate network channel. A wide range of devices can be utilized as this added means of authentication such as a smartphone or watch, a hardware/software token, a landline telephone, etc. You may register several validation devices. For more information about Duo identity validation services, refer to Duo MFA two-factor authentication (2FA) services for teleworkers.

Security Audit Services for At-Home WorkersSecurity Audits can evaluate the exposure of your information system to all classes of external and internal security attacks for an environment that includes remote workers. Progent can run online, automated cybersecurity analysis software for quickly and economically detecting a wide variety of security gaps that can be found over the Internet. Progent's security audit consulting services, which can be managed by data security experts with advanced certifications including CISA, ISSAP, and GIAC, can help you to audit your procedures and policies and assess your IT infrastructure to allow you to implement top-level protection for your at-home workers.
