Cybersecurity in the new normal
Secure the distributed workforce and remote operations with hybrid cloud network security to avoid cyber exposure. Take an approach rooted in prescriptive vulnerability management practices.
Learn six steps to transform your security program:
- Evolve your tech stack.
- Gain full visibility across your hybrid and multi-cloud infrastructure to identify vulnerability exposures.
- Eliminate silos across net-ops, sec-ops, dev-ops.
- Make security policy changes with context.
- Introduce smart automation.
- Remediate based on exposure.
The events of 2020 have brought about radical changes for the cybersecurity industry. Business’ operations dramatically changed, and IT and security organizations struggled to support an entirely remote workforce – often within 24 hours. The rapid cloud migration and accelerated growth of IT assets, combined with a severe shortage of security personnel, left organizations struggling to protect against cybersecurity attacks effectively and proactively.
This global research study explores how security leaders addressed the demands of securing remote workers and future cyber exposure implications. Research findings include:
- The distributed workforce is here to stay — 70% believe that one-third of employees will be remote 18 months from now.
- The move to remote working has introduced new risk — 73% of C-level executives are concerned that the distributed workforce has introduced new vulnerabilities and increased exposures.
- Critical tasks were deprioritized — Although mobile vulnerabilities have increased by 50%, BYOD policies have been downgraded.
- There is a crisis of overconfidence — Despite 93% expressing confidence that changes have been properly validated, over half said it was at least moderately difficult for them to validate that configurations did not introduce risk.
