Security for At-Home Workers
Work-from-Home employees commonly utilize their personal computers and usually operate in an unsecured physical space. This situation multiplies their vulnerability to malware attacks and calls for careful deployment of firewalls, AV tools, MFA-based identity verification, remote monitoring, thorough user education, and the development of policies built on leading practices. Progent's veteran team of data security solutions consultants can assist your business to design, deploy and maintain a compliant security solution that protects critical information resources in environments that incorporate telecommuters.
Firewalls allow companies to build a network that can be securely utilized by on-premises users and by at-home workers, mobile users, vendors, clients, and the public. Modern firewall appliances permit you to configure and control different permissions to various classes of users and to scale your network and adjust your security profile as your business evolves and as cyber threats become increasingly complex. Progent works with both current and legacy firewall devices from all leading vendors including Cisco, Palo Alto Networks, WatchGuard, Juniper, SonicWall and Fortinet. To learn more about Progent's firewall integration services, see firewall support expertise.
Remote Endpoint Security Monitoring makes it easy to watch over the various computers used by telecommuters and either reject or identify and respond to modern cyber attacks like ransomware. With ProSight Active Security Monitoring services, a small-footprint agent is put on every secured endpoint, watching all activity and using advanced machine learning from SentinelOne to detect zero-day threats on arrival. When an attack is discovered, ProSight Active Security Monitoring immediately disconnects the impacted endpoint device from the network to quarantine the malware. Because the ProSight ASM agent is autonomous, endpoints remain secure even if they are offline. Progent is a SentinelOne Partner, dealer, and integrator. To learn more about ProSight Active Security Monitoring, go to remote endpoint monitoring for at-home workers.
Progent's Duo MFA Service Plans incorporate Cisco's Duo cloud technology to defend against compromised passwords by using two-factor authentication. Duo enables one-tap identity confirmation with iOS, Android, and other out-of-band devices. With 2FA, when you sign into a secured application and give your password you are asked to verify your identity via a unit that only you possess and that uses a separate network channel. A broad range of out-of-band devices can be utilized for this added means of authentication including an iPhone or Android or wearable, a hardware token, a landline telephone, etc. You may register multiple validation devices. For more information about Duo identity validation services, visit Cisco Duo MFA two-factor authentication (2FA) services for teleworkers.
