At the start of 2020, when the impact of COVID-19 intensified and became a pandemic, the World Health Organization suggested that citizens work from home, and avoid using public transportation and office environments as a precaution to mitigate the spread and risk of infection.
In response, governments across the globe began advising and requiring citizens to shelter in place and cease on-premise work for all but essential services. 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.
The 2020 Remote Work-From-Home Report, sponsored by Pulse Secure 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.
