It’s a long-held belief that enterprise IT teams are overworked. It’s also considered common knowledge that their jobs have only gotten harder in the days since workforces went remote. Unfortunately, steep consequences for network security have surfaced because of the sudden shift to the work-from-home world.
According to a recent report by Netwrix, 85% of organizations reported that they sacrificed their common security protocols to get their workforce up and running remotely. On top of this, 63% reported an increase in the frequency of cyberattacks. Another study by Micro Focus showed that approximately 45% of companies believe their increased security threats are due to the volume of unmanaged devices.
