- ProSight Patch Management: Tracking, Testing, Installing Software/Firmware
Software update management is an essential and complex task. Prompt and properly managed patching maximizes cybersecurity, regulatory compliance, uptime, and functionality. Sporadic software update management can result in security gaps, compatibility issues, sluggish or inconsistent performance, needless offline stretches, or loss of key functions. Patching entails more than occasional updates of an OS and apps for servers and endpoints. Firmware updates can be a vital for peripheral devices like printers and scanners, network infrastructure appliances such as routers and wireless APs, and Internet-of-Things (IoT) devices such as alarms and health monitors.
ProSight Patch Management Services offer organizations of all sizes a flexible and affordable alternative for assessing, validating, scheduling, applying, and documenting software and firmware updates to your ever-evolving information system. In addition to maximizing the security and functionality of your network, Progent's software and firmware update management offerings open up time for your IT staff to focus on crucial projects that return maximum business value to your information system.

- ProSight Duo MFA: Two-Factor Authentication Services, Endpoint Health Checking, Secure Single Sign-on (SSO)
80% of cybersecurity breaches exploit compromised passwords. Progent's Duo MFA managed services incorporate Cisco's Duo cloud technology to defend against password theft by using two-factor authentication. With 2FA, whenever you sign into a protected online account and give your password you are asked to verify your identity on a device that only you possess and that is accessed using a separate "out-of-band" network channel. A wide range of out-of-band devices can be utilized for this second means of authentication such as a smart phone or watch, a hardware token, a landline phone, etc. You can register multiple validation devices.
Duo supports one-tap identity confirmation on iOS, Google Android, and other popular personal devices. With the Duo Mobile app's push notification feature enabled, you can simply touch "Approve" on your supported smart phone or watch. This improves the login experience by making the authentication procedure nearly immediate. For traditional authentication devices, such as a token, you can transcribe a temporary passcode.
For details about ProSight Duo MFA two-factor identity authentication services, refer to Duo MFA two-factor authentication (2FA) service plans for access security.

Ransomware attacks such as WannaCry have darkened the security landscape and are causing billions of dollars of damage annually. Most ransomware attacks are launched as socially engineered emails with viral links or attachments. Since a growing number of ransomware assaults are zero-day, they are not always identified in time by traditional signature-matching anti-virus (AV) tools. User education and frontline detection are important, but best practices call for building a solid recovery solution to deal with the inevitable successful attack.
- ProSight Network Audit Basic: Network Infrastructure Audit
ProSight Network Audit Basic collects and reports on essential server and workstation information and optionally provides details on other network attached devices. This low-cost audit includes one year of remote network monitoring based on Progent's ProSight WAN Watch remote monitoring and management platform. Within 10 days after the audit begins, Progent provides you with all documents, details and reports collected by ProSight WAN Watch. These deliverables include the Active Directory (AD) Health Check document completed by a Progent Microsoft consultant. The AD Health Check report includes identified errors or misconfigurations and recommended remediation.
A valuable deliverable of the ProSight Network Audit Basic service is the Active Directory Health Check. This report documents the state of Active Directory, DNS, DHCP and Group Policy; compares these services to best practices; and proposes how any discovered errors or misconfiguration could be corrected. This can be a vital service because an unhealthy AD and related services can lead to full network outages, significant delays in authentication or access to services (file/print/etc), complete data loss, bottlenecks to disaster recovery, security vulnerabilities, and poor Internet performance.
