2020 is the Year of Remote Work for many, as organizations of every size find themselves supporting a rapid increase in users working from home. Stanford University has estimated that the number of employees working from home has doubled, with just short of 50% of workers doing so from their homes.
As IT departments scramble to put together a suite of applications to support the Work From Home programs, security has often been neglected in order to prioritize productivity. According to the CSO Pandemic Impact Survey, 61% of IT Security professionals expressed concern with this move to remote work, and have seen a 26% increase in volume, severity and scope of cyberattacks. However, admins can greatly reduce the risk of the most common user attacks like phishing, ransomware and other malware by leveraging a secure and collaborative architecture from Cisco that enables simple and secure experiences.
