Cybersecurity for Remote Workers
At-home workers commonly utilize their own computing devices and often work in an unsecured physical space. This increases their susceptibility to cyber attacks and calls for judicious deployment of corporate firewalls, anti-malware tools, MFA-based identity verification, remote monitoring, intensive user education, and the creation of policies based on leading practices. Progent's seasoned roster of data security solutions consultants can help your business to design, deploy and maintain an effective security solution that protects vital information assets in networks that incorporate remote workers.

Firewall Integration Services for At-Home WorkersFirewalls enable companies to build a network environment that can be safely utilized by on-premises users as well as by an at-home workforce, mobile employees, suppliers, clients, and the public. Modern firewall appliances allow you to assign and manage appropriate access rights to various classes of users and to expand your network and modify your security as your business evolves and as cyber threats grow increasingly sophisticated. Progent supports both new and legacy firewall appliances from all major vendors like Cisco, Palo Alto Networks, Check Point, Juniper, SonicWall and Fortinet.

Remote Security Monitoring and Management Services for At-Home WorkersRemote Endpoint Security Monitoring makes it possible to track the various computers used by remote workers and either reject or identify and respond to modern threats such as ransomware. With Progent's ProSight Active Security Monitoring (ASM) services, a small-footprint agent is put on each protected endpoint device, monitoring all activity and utilizing state-of-the-art behavioral threat analysis from SentinelOne to detect zero-day attacks on arrival. When a cyberattack is discovered, ProSight ASM immediately disconnects the targeted endpoint from the corporate network to quarantine the malware. Since the ProSight Active Security Monitoring agent is self-contained, endpoints stay secure even if they are offline. Progent is a SentinelOne Partner, dealer, and integrator.

Two-factor Authentication Services for TelecommutersProgent's Duo authentication Services incorporate Cisco's Duo technology to protect against compromised passwords through the use of two-factor authentication (2FA). Duo supports one-tap identity confirmation with iOS, Android, and other out-of-band devices. With 2FA, when you sign into a secured online account and give your password you are requested to verify your identity via a unit that only you possess and that uses a different network channel. A broad selection of out-of-band devices can be utilized as this added means of authentication such as a smartphone or wearable, a hardware token, a landline phone, etc. You can designate several validation devices.
