Cybersecurity for Remote Workers
At-home employees commonly utilize their own computing devices and often work in a poorly secured physical space. This increases their susceptibility to cyber attacks and calls for judicious configuration of firewalls, anti-malware tools, multi-factor authentication, remote endpoint monitoring, thorough end-user training, and the creation of policies based on leading practices. Progent's veteran group of cybersecurity solutions experts can help your business to plan, implement and manage an effective security solution that guards critical IT resources in networks that incorporate telecommuters.

Firewall Integration Services for At-Home WorkersFirewalls allow you to create a network that can be securely utilized by local users and by an at-home workforce, mobile workers, vendors, clients, and other stakeholders. Modern firewall appliances allow you to configure and control different permissions to different groups of users and to expand your network and adjust your security as your business evolves and as network attacks become more complex. Progent supports both current and older security appliances from all major vendors including Cisco, Palo Alto Networks, Check Point, Juniper, SonicWall and Fortinet.

Remote Security Monitoring for TeleworkersRemote Endpoint Monitoring makes it easy to watch over the disparate devices utilized by teleworkers and either reject or spot and respond to the latest cyber attacks such as ransomware. With Progent's ProSight Active Security Monitoring services, a lightweight agent is put on every protected endpoint, watching all activity and using advanced machine learning and full execution context from SentinelOne to detect new attacks on arrival. When a cyberattack is spotted, ProSight ASM instantly isolates the infected device from the network to quarantine the threat. Since the ProSight ASM software agent is self-contained, endpoint devices remain protected 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 security monitoring for at-home workers.

Two-factor Authentication Services for TelecommutersProgent's Duo authentication Managed Services utilize Cisco's Duo cloud technology to protect against password theft through the use of two-factor authentication (2FA).

A wide selection of out-of-band devices can be utilized for this added means of ID validation including a smartphone or wearable, a hardware token, a landline telephone, etc. You can designate several validation devices.
