Cybersecurity for Teleworkers
Work-from-Home (WFH) staff members typically use their own computers and often operate in a poorly secured physical space. This situation increases their vulnerability to cyber threats and calls for judicious configuration of firewalls, AV tools, multi-factor authentication, remote monitoring, thorough user education, and the development of security policies built on best practices. Progent's veteran roster of IT security support consultants can assist your business to design, configure and manage a compliant cybersecurity solution that protects vital information resources in environments that incorporate at-home workers.

Firewall Integration Services for At-Home WorkersFirewalls enable companies to create a network environment that can be safely accessed by on-premises users and by an at-home workforce, mobile users, suppliers, customers, and the public. Modern firewall devices permit you to assign and control different access rights to different groups of users and to expand your network and adjust your security as your company evolves and as network attacks become increasingly complex. Progent works with both current and older security appliances from all major vendors like Cisco, Palo Alto Networks, WatchGuard, Juniper, SonicWall and Fortinet.

Remote Security Monitoring and Management Services for At-Home WorkersOnline Endpoint Security Monitoring makes it possible to watch over the various computers utilized by at-home workers and either block or identify and respond to the latest cyber attacks like ransomware. With ProSight Active Security Monitoring services, a lightweight software agent is installed on each secured endpoint device, watching all activity and utilizing advanced behavioral threat analysis from SentinelOne to detect new threats at inception. When a cyberattack is spotted, ProSight Active Security Monitoring instantly disconnects the targeted device from the network to quarantine the malware. Since the ProSight ASM agent is self-contained, endpoint devices stay secure even if they are offline. Progent is a SentinelOne Partner, dealer, and integrator.

Two-factor Authentication (2FA) Services for TeleworkersProgent's Duo authentication service plans incorporate Cisco's Duo cloud technology to defend against compromised passwords through the use of two-factor authentication. Duo enables one-tap identity verification on iOS, Google Android, and other personal devices. Using 2FA, whenever you sign into a protected online account and give your password you are asked to confirm who you are on a unit that only you have and that uses a different network channel. A wide range of out-of-band devices can be used as this second form of authentication including a smartphone or wearable, a hardware token, a landline telephone, etc. You may register multiple verification devices. To learn more about ProSight Duo two-factor identity authentication services, refer to Cisco Duo MFA two-factor authentication (2FA) services for teleworkers.
