Security for Telecommuters
At-home employees commonly utilize their personal computing devices and usually operate in a poorly secured physical environment. This situation multiplies their vulnerability to malware threats and calls for judicious deployment of corporate firewalls, anti-malware tools, MFA-based identity verification, remote endpoint monitoring, intensive end-user education, and the creation of security policies built on leading practices. Progent's seasoned team of cybersecurity solutions experts can assist you to design, deploy and maintain a compliant security solution that protects critical information assets in environments that include an at-home workforce.

Firewall Integration Services for At-Home WorkersFirewalls allow companies to build a network that can be securely accessed by on-premises users as well as by teleworkers, mobile users, suppliers, clients, and the public. Modern firewall appliances permit you to assign and manage appropriate access rights to different groups of users and to expand your network and adjust your security profile as your company evolves and as cyber threats become more complex. Progent works with both new and legacy firewall appliances from all leading vendors like Cisco, Palo Alto Networks, Check Point, Juniper, SonicWall and Fortinet.

Remote Security Monitoring Services for At-Home WorkersOnline Endpoint Security Monitoring makes it possible to track the disparate devices utilized by teleworkers and either block or identify and respond to modern threats such as ransomware. With Progent's ProSight Active Security Monitoring services, a small-footprint software agent is installed on each secured endpoint, monitoring all activity and utilizing state-of-the-art machine learning from SentinelOne to identify new attacks on arrival. When an attack is spotted, ProSight Active Security Monitoring immediately disconnects the infected endpoint from the corporate network to quarantine the threat. Since the ProSight Active Security Monitoring agent is autonomous, endpoints remain protected even when they are disconnected from the Internet. Progent is a SentinelOne Partner, reseller, and integrator. To find out more about ProSight ASM, refer to remote endpoint monitoring for teleworkers.

Two-factor Authentication (2FA) Services for TeleworkersProgent's Duo authentication service plans incorporate Cisco's Duo cloud technology to protect against password theft 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 sign into a secured online account and enter your password you are asked to verify your identity on a device that only you possess and that is accessed using a different network channel. A broad selection of out-of-band devices can be used as this second means of authentication including an iPhone or Android or wearable, a hardware/software token, a landline phone, etc. You can designate several validation devices. To find out more about ProSight Duo identity validation services, see Cisco Duo MFA two-factor authentication (2FA) services for teleworkers.
