Cybersecurity for At-Home Workers
Work-from-Home employees commonly use their own computing devices and often operate in an unsecured physical area. This situation multiplies their susceptibility to cyber threats and calls for judicious deployment of firewalls, anti-malware tools, multi-factor authentication, remote endpoint monitoring, extensive user education, and the development of policies built on best practices. Progent's veteran roster of data security support experts can help you to design, deploy and manage a compliant cybersecurity solution that protects critical information resources in networks that incorporate telecommuters.

Firewall Integration Services for At-Home WorkersFirewalls allow you to build a network that can be securely utilized by on-premises users and by an at-home workforce, mobile workers, suppliers, customers, and the public. Next-generation firewall appliances allow you to configure and manage appropriate access rights to different classes of users and to expand your IT network and modify your cybersecurity posture as your company evolves and as cyber threats grow more sophisticated. Progent works with both current and older firewall devices from all leading manufacturers including Cisco, Palo Alto Networks, WatchGuard, Juniper, and Fortinet.

Remote Endpoint Monitoring for TelecommutersOnline Endpoint Security Monitoring makes it easy to track the disparate devices used by teleworkers and either reject or identify and respond to the latest threats like ransomware. With Progent's ProSight Active Security Monitoring (ASM) services, a lightweight software agent is put on every protected endpoint device, monitoring all activity and using state-of-the-art AI technology from SentinelOne to detect new attacks on arrival. When an attack is discovered, ProSight ASM instantly disconnects the infected endpoint from the network to quarantine the threat. Because the ProSight ASM agent is self-contained, endpoint devices stay secure even when they are not connected to the Internet. Progent is a SentinelOne Partner, dealer, and integrator. For more information about ProSight Active Security Monitoring, see remote endpoint monitoring for telecommuters.

Two-factor Authentication (2FA) Services for Remote WorkersProgent's Duo authentication Service Plans utilize Cisco's Duo cloud technology to protect against compromised passwords by using two-factor authentication (2FA). Duo enables single-tap identity confirmation with Apple iOS, Android, and other personal devices. Using Duo 2FA, when you log into a secured online account and give your password you are asked to confirm who you are via a device that only you possess and that uses a different network channel. A wide range of devices can be used as this second form of authentication such as a smartphone or wearable, a hardware/software token, a landline telephone, etc. You can register multiple validation devices. To learn more about ProSight Duo two-factor identity authentication services, see Cisco Duo MFA two-factor authentication services for an at-home workforce.
