Security and Compliance for Teleworkers
Work-from-Home staff members commonly use their own computing devices and often work in a poorly secured physical space. This situation increases their vulnerability to cyber attacks and requires judicious configuration of corporate firewalls, anti-malware tools, MFA-based identity verification, remote monitoring, extensive user education, and the creation of policies built on leading practices. Progent's seasoned group of cybersecurity solutions experts can help you to design, deploy and manage an effective cybersecurity solution that guards vital information assets in networks that include an at-home workforce.
Firewalls enable you to build a network environment that can be safely accessed by local users and by teleworkers, mobile workers, vendors, clients, and other stakeholders. Modern firewall appliances allow you to assign and control appropriate permissions to various classes of users and to scale your network and modify your security as your company evolves and as cyber threats grow more complex. Progent supports both current and legacy firewall devices from all major manufacturers like Cisco, Palo Alto Networks, WatchGuard, Juniper, and Fortinet.

Online Endpoint Monitoring makes it easy to watch over the disparate devices used by telecommuters and either reject or identify and mitigate the latest threats such as ransomware. With ProSight Active Security Monitoring (ASM) services, a small-footprint agent is put on every secured endpoint, watching all activity and using advanced AI technology from SentinelOne to identify zero-day attacks at inception. When a cyberattack is discovered, ProSight ASM immediately disconnects the targeted endpoint from the network to quarantine the threat. Because the ProSight ASM agent is self-contained, endpoint devices remain secure even if they are disconnected from the Internet.

Progent's Duo MFA managed services incorporate Cisco's Duo technology to defend against compromised passwords through the use of two-factor authentication. Duo supports single-tap identity confirmation with iOS, Android, and other out-of-band devices. Using Duo 2FA, when you log into a secured application and enter your password you are asked to verify who you are via a device that only you possess and that uses a different network channel. A wide selection of out-of-band devices can be utilized for this added form of ID validation including an iPhone or Android or wearable, a hardware token, a landline telephone, etc. You may register multiple validation devices. To learn more about ProSight Duo two-factor identity authentication services, see Duo MFA two-factor authentication services for an at-home workforce.
