Cybersecurity for At-Home Workers
Work-from-Home (WFH) employees typically use their own devices and usually work in a poorly secured physical environment. This increases their susceptibility to malware threats and calls for careful deployment of firewalls, AV tools, MFA-based identity verification, remote monitoring, extensive end-user education, and the development of security policies built on leading practices. Progent's seasoned group of cybersecurity support experts can help you to plan, implement and maintain a compliant security solution that guards critical IT assets in networks that incorporate remote workers.

Firewall Integration Services for At-Home WorkersFirewalls allow you to create a network that can be securely utilized by local users as well as by telecommuters, mobile workers, suppliers, customers, and the public. Next-generation firewall appliances allow you to assign and control different permissions to various classes of users and to scale your network and adjust your cybersecurity posture as your business evolves and as network attacks become more complex. Progent works with both current and legacy security devices from all leading manufacturers like Cisco, Palo Alto Networks, WatchGuard, Juniper, SonicWall and Fortinet.

Remote Endpoint Monitoring and Management for TeleworkersOnline Endpoint Monitoring makes it possible to watch over the various computers utilized by remote workers and either block or spot and respond to the latest cyber attacks like ransomware. With ProSight Active Security Monitoring services, a small-footprint software agent is put on each secured endpoint device, monitoring all activity and utilizing advanced AI technology from SentinelOne to detect new threats on arrival. When a cyberattack is discovered, ProSight Active Security Monitoring instantly disconnects the infected endpoint device from the corporate network to contain the threat. Because the ProSight ASM agent is self-contained, endpoints remain protected even if they are not connected to the Internet. Progent is a SentinelOne Partner, reseller, and integrator.

Two-factor Authentication (2FA) Services for Remote WorkersProgent's Duo authentication Managed Services incorporate Cisco's Duo technology to protect against compromised passwords through the use of two-factor authentication (2FA). Duo enables one-tap identity confirmation on iOS, Google Android, and other out-of-band devices. With 2FA, whenever you log into a secured online account and give your password you are requested to verify your identity on a unit that only you have and that is accessed using a different ("out-of-band") network channel. A wide selection of out-of-band devices can be used as this second means of ID validation such as a smartphone or watch, a hardware token, a landline phone, etc. You may register several verification devices.
