Cybersecurity for At-Home Workers
Work-from-Home (WFH) workers commonly utilize their personal computers and often work in a poorly secured physical space. This situation increases their vulnerability to cyber threats and requires careful configuration of firewalls, AV tools, MFA-based identity verification, remote endpoint monitoring, thorough end-user education, and the development of security policies based on best practices. Progent's veteran group of IT security solutions consultants can assist your business to design, deploy and manage a compliant cybersecurity solution that protects vital information assets in environments that include remote workers.
Firewalls enable you to create a network environment that can be securely accessed by on-premises users and by an at-home workforce, mobile employees, suppliers, clients, and other stakeholders. Modern firewall appliances permit you to assign and manage different access rights to different classes of users and to scale your network and adjust your security profile as your business evolves and as cyber threats grow more sophisticated. Progent works with both current and older firewall appliances from all major vendors including Cisco, Palo Alto Networks, WatchGuard, Juniper, SonicWall and Fortinet.

Remote Endpoint Security Monitoring makes it easy to track the disparate devices utilized by teleworkers and either block or spot and respond to the latest cyber attacks such as ransomware. With ProSight Active Security Monitoring (ASM) services, a lightweight agent is put on every secured endpoint device, watching all activity and using advanced AI technology from SentinelOne to detect zero-day threats before they can spread. When a cyberattack is spotted, ProSight ASM instantly isolates the impacted endpoint from the network to quarantine the threat. Since the ProSight Active Security Monitoring agent is autonomous, endpoint devices remain secure even when they are offline. Progent is a SentinelOne Partner, dealer, and integrator. To learn more about ProSight ASM, see remote endpoint security monitoring for an at-home workforce.
Progent's Duo authentication Service Plans utilize Cisco's Duo cloud technology to protect against stolen passwords through the use of two-factor authentication. Duo supports one-tap identity verification with iOS, Google Android, and other out-of-band devices. Using Duo 2FA, whenever you log into a protected application and enter your password you are requested to confirm who you are on a unit that only you possess and that is accessed using a different network channel. A wide selection of out-of-band devices can be used as this added means of ID validation such as an iPhone or Android or watch, a hardware token, a landline telephone, etc. You may designate several verification devices. To find out more about Duo two-factor identity validation services, see Cisco Duo MFA two-factor authentication (2FA) services for teleworkers.
