Cybersecurity for At-Home Workers
At-home staff members typically use their personal computing devices and usually work in an unsecured physical area. This situation multiplies their vulnerability to malware threats and requires careful deployment of corporate firewalls, AV tools, MFA-based identity verification, remote endpoint monitoring, intensive user training, and the development of policies based on best practices. Progent's seasoned group of data security solutions consultants can assist your business to design, configure and maintain an effective cybersecurity solution that guards critical information resources in environments that incorporate remote workers.
Firewalls allow companies to build a network that can be securely accessed by on-premises users and by at-home workers, mobile workers, vendors, clients, and other stakeholders. Next-generation firewall devices permit you to assign and control appropriate access rights to various classes of users and to expand your network and modify your cybersecurity posture as your company evolves and as network attacks become more sophisticated. Progent works with both new and older firewall devices from all major vendors like Cisco, Palo Alto Networks, Check Point, Juniper, SonicWall and Fortinet.

Online Endpoint Security Monitoring makes it easy to track the disparate devices utilized by at-home workers and either block or identify and mitigate modern cyber attacks such as ransomware. With ProSight Active Security Monitoring (ASM) services, a lightweight software agent is put on every secured endpoint device, watching all activity and utilizing state-of-the-art behavioral threat analysis from SentinelOne to detect zero-day attacks before they can spread. When a cyberattack is discovered, ProSight ASM instantly isolates the impacted endpoint from the corporate network to contain the malware. Because the ProSight ASM software agent is autonomous, endpoints stay secure even if they are disconnected from the Internet. Progent is a SentinelOne Partner, reseller, and integrator. For details about ProSight Active Security Monitoring, see remote endpoint security monitoring for at-home workers.
Progent's Duo authentication Services incorporate Cisco's Duo cloud technology to defend against password theft through the use of two-factor authentication (2FA). Duo supports one-tap identity confirmation on Apple iOS, Android, and other out-of-band devices. With Duo 2FA, when you sign into a secured application and give your password you are asked to verify your identity on a unit that only you possess and that uses a separate network channel. A wide selection of out-of-band devices can be utilized for this added form of authentication including an iPhone or Android or watch, a hardware token, a landline phone, etc. You can register several validation devices. For details about Duo two-factor identity validation services, go to Cisco Duo MFA two-factor authentication services for telecommuters.
