Cybersecurity for Remote Workers
Work-from-Home (WFH) employees commonly utilize their own computers and usually work in a poorly secured physical space. This situation increases their vulnerability to malware attacks and calls for careful configuration of firewalls, anti-malware tools, multi-factor authentication, remote monitoring, thorough end-user training, and the creation of policies based on leading practices. Progent's seasoned group of data security support consultants can help you to design, deploy and maintain a compliant security solution that guards vital IT assets in environments that include at-home workers.

Firewall Integration Services for At-Home WorkersFirewalls allow companies to create a network that can be safely accessed by local users and by at-home workers, mobile workers, suppliers, clients, and the public. Modern firewall appliances permit you to configure and control different access rights to different groups of users and to scale your IT network and modify your cybersecurity posture as your business evolves and as cyber threats become increasingly complex. Progent works with both current and older firewall devices from all leading manufacturers like Cisco, Palo Alto Networks, WatchGuard, Juniper, and Fortinet. For more information about Progent's firewall configuration services, refer to firewall integration and support expertise.

Remote Security Monitoring and Management for At-Home WorkersOnline Endpoint Monitoring makes it possible to track the various computers utilized by an at-home workforce and either reject or spot and respond to the latest cyber attacks like ransomware. With ProSight Active Security Monitoring services, a small-footprint software agent is installed on each secured endpoint device, monitoring all activity and using advanced machine learning from SentinelOne to detect zero-day threats on arrival. When an attack is discovered, ProSight ASM instantly disconnects the targeted endpoint device from the corporate network to quarantine the threat. Because the ProSight ASM agent is self-contained, endpoints stay secure even if they are disconnected from the Internet. Progent is a SentinelOne Partner, reseller, and integrator.

Two-factor Authentication Services for TelecommutersProgent's Duo MFA Services incorporate Cisco's Duo cloud technology to defend against password theft through the use of two-factor authentication (2FA). Duo supports single-tap identity confirmation on Apple iOS, Google Android, and other out-of-band devices. With 2FA, when you log into a secured application and give your password you are requested to verify your identity on a unit that only you have and that is accessed using a different network channel. A wide selection of out-of-band devices can be used for this second means of authentication such as a smartphone or wearable, a hardware token, a landline phone, etc. You can register multiple validation devices. To learn more about ProSight Duo identity validation services, refer to Cisco Duo MFA two-factor authentication (2FA) services for remote workers.
