Security for Remote Workers
Work-from-Home (WFH) workers typically utilize their personal computers and usually work in an unsecured physical area. This situation increases their vulnerability to malware threats and calls for judicious deployment of corporate firewalls, AV tools, multi-factor authentication, remote monitoring, thorough user education, and the development of policies built on leading practices. Progent's veteran group of data security support experts can assist your business to plan, deploy and maintain a compliant cybersecurity solution that guards critical information assets in networks that incorporate remote workers.

Firewall Integration Services for At-Home WorkersFirewalls allow companies to build a network that can be safely accessed by local users and by teleworkers, mobile workers, vendors, customers, and other stakeholders. Modern firewall appliances permit you to configure and control appropriate access rights to different groups of users and to expand your IT network and adjust your security profile as your business evolves and as cyber threats become more complex. Progent supports both current and legacy security appliances from all major manufacturers like Cisco, Palo Alto Networks, WatchGuard, Juniper, SonicWall and Fortinet.

Remote Security Monitoring and Management Services for At-Home WorkersOnline Endpoint Monitoring makes it possible to track the disparate devices used by telecommuters and either reject or spot and respond to the latest cyber attacks such as ransomware. With ProSight Active Security Monitoring services, a lightweight agent is put on every protected endpoint device, watching all activity and using advanced behavioral threat analysis from SentinelOne to identify zero-day threats on arrival. When a cyberattack is spotted, ProSight Active Security Monitoring instantly isolates the targeted device from the network to quarantine the threat. Since the ProSight ASM software agent is self-contained, endpoints stay secure even if they are disconnected from the Internet. Progent is a SentinelOne Partner, reseller, and integrator. For details about ProSight ASM, visit remote endpoint monitoring for remote workers.

Two-factor Authentication Services for Remote WorkersProgent's Duo authentication Service Plans utilize Cisco's Duo cloud technology to defend against compromised passwords by using two-factor authentication. Duo enables single-tap identity verification on Apple iOS, Android, and other personal devices. With 2FA, when you sign into a secured application and give your password you are requested to confirm your identity on a device that only you have and that uses a different network channel. A wide range of devices can be utilized for this second form of authentication such as an iPhone or Android or wearable, a hardware token, a landline telephone, etc. You may register multiple validation devices.
