Securing Remote and Hybrid Workplaces

When companies rushed home last year, it dismantled a long-held system of relying on a corporate perimeter. Sure, companies indicated for years their needs and plans for reexamining enterprise security, but the pandemic created urgency in the transition.

The rise of remote work brought zero trust to the forefront of enterprise security strategies, as businesses accelerated the adoption of technologies that extended corporate systems into the homes of enterprise workers. Born from need, the rise of remote work shifted businesses to the latest technology and security rushed to keep up. 

With remote work, businesses had to rethink authentication, compensate for restricted visibility and defend malicious email campaigns preying on employee vulnerabilities. 

Through it all, the threats evolved — ransomware attacks became more damaging and supply chain compromises emerged as a leading threat.
