Security for Telecommuters
Work-from-Home employees typically use their own devices and often operate in a poorly secured physical space. This multiplies their susceptibility to malware threats and calls for careful configuration of corporate firewalls, anti-malware tools, MFA-based identity verification, remote endpoint monitoring, extensive end-user training, and the creation of security policies based on best practices. Progent's seasoned group of data security support experts can assist your business to design, deploy and manage an effective cybersecurity solution that guards vital IT assets in networks that include an at-home workforce.
Firewalls enable you to build a network environment that can be securely accessed by local users and by an at-home workforce, mobile users, suppliers, customers, and the public. Modern firewall appliances allow you to configure and control different access rights to different classes of users and to scale your IT network and modify your security as your company evolves and as cyber threats grow more complex. Progent supports both new and older security devices from all major manufacturers like Cisco, Palo Alto Networks, WatchGuard, Juniper, and Fortinet.

Online Endpoint Monitoring makes it possible to track the various devices utilized by teleworkers and either block or spot and mitigate the latest threats like ransomware. With ProSight Active Security Monitoring (ASM) services, a lightweight software agent is installed on each secured endpoint, monitoring all activity and utilizing state-of-the-art machine learning from SentinelOne to identify new threats at inception. When an attack is discovered, ProSight Active Security Monitoring immediately disconnects the infected endpoint from the corporate network to contain the malware. Since the ProSight Active Security Monitoring software agent is self-contained, endpoint devices remain protected even if they are offline. Progent is a SentinelOne Partner, dealer, and integrator.

Progent's Duo MFA services incorporate Cisco's Duo technology to defend against compromised passwords by using two-factor authentication. Duo supports single-tap identity confirmation on iOS, Google Android, and other out-of-band devices. With Duo 2FA, when you sign into a secured online account and give your password you are asked to verify your identity on a unit that only you have and that is accessed using a separate network channel. A wide range of out-of-band devices can be utilized as this second means of ID validation including an iPhone or Android or wearable, a hardware/software token, a landline telephone, etc. You may register several validation devices.
