More people than ever are now working from home to comply with stay-at-home orders and social distance due to the COVID-19 pandemic. This massive shift has forced many organizations to determine that it’s still possible to enable workers to remain productive while not in a physical office. However, special considerations should be made to secure both your company and customer’s sensitive information.
This new way of work with a greater emphasis on remote has surfaced the notion that the actual endpoints, meaning the mobile devices and computers that remote workers use to access company information are critical to maintaining such security. However, we found that a majority of IT decision makers have yet to implement key security measures for their remote workforce like virtual private networks (VPN), multi-factor authentication (MFA), and mobile device management (MDM).
We wanted to conduct this study to help organizations benchmark how they are adapting to this unprecedented shift compared to others.
