As Modern Mobile Enables Remote Work, It Also Demands Security

  • The coronavirus pandemic has completely upended the way we work, educate and socialize. Soon after the rapid onset of the virus, organizations were forced to fully adopt work-from-home and other remote models. Luckily, employees quickly proved they could be productive and successful without being directly connected to the corporate network.
  • Cybercriminals are taking advantage of social uncertainty and exploiting the fact that we rely more on mobile devices to stay productive.
  • With most of us working away from the office, each of us now represents a remote office that your organization needs to secure. Many organizations turned to VPNs when shifting to remote work, but that leaves a number of security gaps, including the fact that many of us don’t use VPNs when using our mobile devices.
