Thumb original the remote work era trends in the distributed workforce   en

Thanks to improvements in digital workspace technology over the past several years, distributed workforces — with all their benefits — became an increasingly viable option for businesses. But despite the promise of cost savings, business agility, and employee flexibility, leadership inertia and fears thwarted most widespread attempts at this paradigm shift.

Would employees stay on a task outside a physical office space? Would the company culture survive? As we’ve come to see, these fears — while understandable — were unwarranted.

The global pandemic catalyzed organizations to act in spite of the barriers. It accelerated a cross-industry shift to remote work that had been poised to materialize but had been stymied by the status quo.

And not only did the sky not fall, but the clouds also parted to reveal new opportunities. Companies that were previously lagging behind in terms of remote work and digital experience were able to make swift gains, putting them within the sights of the competition. And improvements in productivity, employee satisfaction, recruitment, and cost savings make it unlikely that businesses will ever return to a fully location-based model.

Endpoint Security Effectiveness - How organizations protect their endpoints against ransomware and malware

Hear us out: attacks either begin on an endpoint or are headed to one.

Why do we make this argument? As has been documented with nearly all ransomware, employees and end users are often the easiest way into an enterprise, large or small, via phishing schemes or malspam. Getting just one user in an organization to open a malicious attachment on their endpoint can be a weak link in your carefully executed security strategy.

At that point, attackers have a foothold on a single laptop, establish persistence, and begin to move laterally – th ...

Yet access to data has increased without a commensurate or popular understanding of cybersecurity risk. The result is that the world is behind in cybersecurity and vulnerable to a range of digitally en ...
