REPORT Details

OVERVIEW

Securing the remote workforce has become a critical priority for organizations affected by the closing of offices and workplaces in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Conducted during the height of the 2020 COVID-19 pandemic, this Remote Workforce Security Report reveals the state of securing the new remote workforce, key challenges and unique security threats faced by organizations, technology gaps and preferences, investment priorities, and more.

Key findings include:

  • 84% of organizations consider it at least somewhat likely (44% of them very likely) that they will continue increased work from home capabilities in the future due to increased productivity benefits.
  • 65% allow access from personal, unmanaged devices, while 55% see this scenario as a significant security risk.
  • 54% confirm that the COVID epidemic accelerated migration of workflows to cloud-based apps.
  • Of the organizations that expanded secure access capacity, the most frequent motion was to purchase more user licenses for existing apps (39%), followed by adding new vendors / solutions (26%), and purchasing more hardware (18%).

We would like to thank Bitglass for supporting this important industry research project. We hope you find this report informative and helpful as you continue your efforts in securing your organizations against evolving threats and during challenging times.

Thank you,

DRAMATIC INCREASE IN REMOTE WORKFORCE

The survey reveals a massive shift toward remote and homebased work environments due to the COVID-19 pandemic. While a majority of 63% of organizations had less than one-quarter of employees working in remote/at-home environments before the crisis, a whopping three quarters of the same organizations report that over 75% of their workforce is now working from home.

MIGRATION TO CLOUD

A majority (54%) confirm that the COVID pandemic accelerated the migration of user workflows to cloud-based applications. As applications migrate to the cloud, companies need to consider how securing applications in the cloud is different than on-premises solutions.
