At the start of 2020, government and local officials across the globe began advising and requiring citizens to shelter in place and cease on-premises work for all but essential businesses. Companies initiated immediate actions to expand and facilitate remote work from home (WFH) capabilities.
Beyond potentially impacting user productivity, this emergency workplace shift and rapid need for remote work capacity threatened IT infrastructure, business continuity and information security.
Secure access solutions keep businesses running by enabling safe remote computing and connecting people and devices to the data centre and cloud applications — even during the most unpredictable circumstances.
This 2020 Remote Work from Home Report, sponsored by Ivanti and produced by Cybersecurity Insiders, offers an in-depth perspective on how enterprises transitioned workers and resources, and reveals WFH cybersecurity challenges, concerns, strategies, and anticipated outcomes.
The survey, conducted in May of 2020, polled over 400 IT security decision-makers, practitioners, and companies of varying sizes across multiple industries.
The survey found that 84% of companies anticipate broader and permanent remote work and nearly one-third plan to increase their budget for secure access in the near-term.
