Security for At-Home Workers
Work-from-Home staff members commonly use their personal computing devices and often operate in an unsecured physical area. This increases their susceptibility to malware attacks and requires judicious configuration of firewalls, anti-malware tools, multi-factor authentication, remote endpoint monitoring, extensive user training, and the creation of security policies based on best practices. Progent's veteran group of cybersecurity support consultants can help your business to design, deploy and manage an effective cybersecurity solution that protects critical IT resources in networks that incorporate at-home workers.
Firewalls allow companies to build a network environment that can be securely accessed by on-premises users as well as by an at-home workforce, mobile employees, suppliers, customers, and other stakeholders. Modern firewall devices permit you to configure and control different access rights to different classes of users and to expand your network and adjust your cybersecurity posture as your business evolves and as cyber threats become more complex. Progent supports both new and legacy firewall devices from all major manufacturers like Cisco, Palo Alto Networks, WatchGuard, Juniper, SonicWall and Fortinet. For more information about Progent's firewall support expertise, refer to firewall support services.
Online Endpoint Security Monitoring makes it possible to watch over the various computers utilized by teleworkers and either block or spot and mitigate modern threats like ransomware. With Progent's ProSight Active Security Monitoring services, a small-footprint agent is put on each protected endpoint device, watching all activity and utilizing advanced behavioral threat analysis from SentinelOne to identify zero-day attacks on arrival. When a cyberattack is spotted, ProSight ASM immediately disconnects the infected endpoint device from the network to contain the malware. Because the ProSight Active Security Monitoring agent is autonomous, endpoints stay secure even when they are disconnected from the Internet. Progent is a SentinelOne Partner, dealer, and integrator. For more information about ProSight ASM, go to remote endpoint monitoring for remote workers.
Progent's Duo authentication Service Plans utilize Cisco's Duo cloud technology to defend against stolen passwords by using two-factor authentication (2FA). Duo supports one-tap identity confirmation on iOS, Android, and other personal devices. With 2FA, when you log into a secured online account and enter your password you are requested to confirm who you are on a device that only you have and that is accessed using a separate network channel. A wide selection of devices can be utilized for this added form of authentication such as a smartphone or watch, a hardware token, a landline telephone, etc. You can designate several validation devices. For more information about ProSight Duo identity authentication services, see Cisco Duo MFA two-factor authentication services for teleworkers.
