Cybersecurity for At-Home Workers
Work-from-Home staff members commonly use their own computers and often work in a poorly secured physical space. This situation multiplies their susceptibility to cyber attacks and calls for careful deployment of corporate firewalls, anti-malware tools, MFA-based identity verification, remote endpoint monitoring, extensive user training, and the development of security policies based on best practices. Progent's seasoned roster of data security solutions experts can assist your business to design, deploy and manage a compliant cybersecurity solution that guards critical IT assets in environments that incorporate telecommuters.
Firewalls allow you to build a network that can be safely utilized by local users and by teleworkers, mobile workers, suppliers, customers, and other stakeholders. Next-generation firewall appliances allow you to assign and manage appropriate permissions to various groups of users and to scale your IT network and adjust your cybersecurity posture as your business evolves and as network attacks grow increasingly complex. Progent works with both new and older security appliances from all leading vendors like Cisco, Palo Alto Networks, WatchGuard, Juniper, SonicWall and Fortinet.

Remote Endpoint Monitoring makes it possible to track the various devices utilized by telecommuters and either block or identify and respond to modern threats like ransomware. With ProSight Active Security Monitoring services, a small-footprint agent is put on each protected endpoint, watching all activity and using advanced machine learning and full execution context from SentinelOne to detect zero-day attacks on arrival. When an attack is spotted, ProSight Active Security Monitoring immediately disconnects the targeted device from the network to contain the threat. Since the ProSight Active Security Monitoring agent is autonomous, endpoints stay secure even if they are offline. Progent is a SentinelOne Partner, dealer, and integrator. For details about ProSight Active Security Monitoring, refer to remote endpoint monitoring for teleworkers.
Progent's Duo authentication managed services utilize Cisco's Duo technology to defend against compromised passwords by using two-factor authentication (2FA). Duo supports single-tap identity verification on iOS, Google Android, and other out-of-band devices. Using 2FA, when you log into a secured online account 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 selection of devices can be utilized for this second means of ID validation such as an iPhone or Android or watch, a hardware/software token, a landline telephone, etc. You may register multiple validation devices.

Security Audits can assess the vulnerability of your network to all types of external and internal security attacks for a network that incorporates an at-home workforce. Progent can run remote, automated security analysis software for rapidly and economically detecting a wide variety of security holes that can be surfaced via the Internet. Progent's security assessment consulting services, which can be provided by security experts with top certifications including CISM, ISSAP, and GIAC, can help your business to audit your workflows and policies and assess your IT infrastructure to enable you to design top-level security for your teleworkers.
