Security and Compliance for Telecommuters
At-home staff members commonly utilize their personal computing devices and often operate in a poorly secured physical environment. This multiplies their vulnerability to malware attacks and calls for judicious configuration of firewalls, anti-malware tools, MFA-based identity verification, remote endpoint monitoring, intensive end-user training, and the development of security policies built on leading practices. Progent's seasoned group of IT security support consultants can assist your business to design, deploy and maintain a compliant cybersecurity solution that guards vital information resources in environments that include remote workers.

Firewall Integration Services for At-Home WorkersFirewalls enable you to build a network environment that can be securely accessed by local users as well as by telecommuters, mobile workers, vendors, clients, and other stakeholders. Next-generation firewall devices allow you to assign and control appropriate permissions to various groups of users and to scale your network and adjust your security as your company evolves and as cyber threats grow increasingly sophisticated. Progent works with both new and legacy firewall devices from all leading manufacturers like Cisco, Palo Alto Networks, Check Point, Juniper, SonicWall and Fortinet.

Remote Endpoint Monitoring and Management for At-Home WorkersOnline Endpoint Monitoring makes it easy to track the disparate devices used by remote workers and either reject or spot and mitigate the latest threats like ransomware. With Progent's ProSight Active Security Monitoring services, a small-footprint agent is installed on each protected endpoint, watching all activity and using advanced behavioral threat analysis from SentinelOne to identify zero-day threats before they can spread. When a cyberattack is spotted, ProSight ASM immediately disconnects the targeted device from the corporate network to contain the threat. Since the ProSight Active Security Monitoring agent is self-contained, endpoint devices stay secure even if they are offline. Progent is a SentinelOne Partner, dealer, and integrator. To find out more about ProSight ASM, refer to remote endpoint security monitoring for telecommuters.

Two-factor Authentication Services for TelecommutersProgent's Duo MFA Managed Services utilize Cisco's Duo technology to defend against password theft by using two-factor authentication (2FA). Duo enables one-tap identity confirmation on Apple iOS, Google Android, and other personal devices. Using Duo 2FA, when you sign into a protected application and give your password you are asked to confirm who you are on a unit that only you have and that is accessed using a different ("out-of-band") network channel. A broad selection of devices can be utilized as this added means of authentication including an iPhone or Android or watch, a hardware token, a landline telephone, etc. You can register several verification devices.
