Security and Compliance for At-Home Workers
At-home workers typically use their personal computing devices and often operate in an unsecured physical environment. This multiplies their vulnerability to malware threats and calls for careful deployment of firewalls, anti-malware tools, multi-factor authentication, remote endpoint monitoring, intensive user training, and the creation of policies built on best practices. Progent's seasoned team of IT security solutions experts can help you to design, configure and maintain a compliant security solution that protects critical information resources in networks that incorporate telecommuters.
Firewalls enable companies to create a network that can be securely utilized by on-premises users as well as by telecommuters, mobile workers, vendors, customers, and other stakeholders. Modern firewall devices allow you to configure and manage appropriate permissions to different groups of users and to scale your network and modify your cybersecurity posture as your business evolves and as cyber threats become increasingly sophisticated. Progent supports both current and older security devices from all major manufacturers like Cisco, Palo Alto Networks, WatchGuard, Juniper, and Fortinet. To learn more about Progent's firewall configuration expertise, refer to firewall support services.
Online Endpoint Security Monitoring makes it easy to track the various computers used by remote workers and either block or spot and mitigate the latest cyber attacks like ransomware. With Progent's ProSight Active Security Monitoring services, a lightweight agent is installed on every secured endpoint device, monitoring all activity and utilizing advanced machine learning from SentinelOne to identify zero-day threats on arrival. When a cyberattack is spotted, ProSight Active Security Monitoring instantly disconnects the infected device from the corporate network to quarantine the threat. Since the ProSight ASM agent is self-contained, endpoint devices remain protected even if they are not connected to the Internet. Progent is a SentinelOne Partner, dealer, and integrator. For more information about ProSight ASM, visit remote endpoint security monitoring for at-home workers.
Progent's Duo MFA Managed Services utilize Cisco's Duo technology to protect against stolen passwords by using two-factor authentication. Duo supports single-tap identity verification on Apple iOS, Google Android, and other out-of-band devices. Using 2FA, whenever you log into a secured online account and give your password you are requested to confirm your identity on a device that only you have and that uses a different ("out-of-band") network channel. A wide selection of devices can be used for this added form of authentication including an iPhone or Android or watch, a hardware token, a landline telephone, etc. You can designate multiple verification devices. For details about ProSight Duo two-factor identity authentication services, visit Cisco Duo MFA two-factor authentication services for remote workers.
