According to Forrester, the number of permanent, full-time remote workers is expected to increase by 300 percent or more compared to pre-pandemic numbers. Amid the chaos surrounding the pandemic, getting your entire workforce back to the office seems trivial, especially when many employees’ work can be done remotely. It’s no wonder that, according to Gartner, almost half of employees will continue to work remotely post COVID-19.
While your workforce runs the show from their homes, it’s going to be a challenge to keep cyberattacks and threats at bay. Hackers and threat actors can now exploit even the smallest security flaw in your end-user devices and networks, compromising corporate data. Research from Cybersecurity Ventures, a cybersecurity firm, shows that one business will fall victim to a ransomware attack every 11 seconds in 2021. This is up from one business falling victim every 14 seconds back in 2019.
Keeping all this in mind, we asked Forrester what businesses need to prioritize and how they can keep their workforce productive while tackling rising security threats in remote environments. In this hour-long discussion with Andrew Hewitt, a Forrester analyst, we spoke about:
Ways to provide an enriched end-user experience when facing increased security threats and tight budgets.
Why we need unified endpoint management and security in the first place.
Technologies to adopt in 2021 to manage your remote workforce.
Tactics to ensure both effective management and security of your remote workforce.
And much more.
