The global spike in remote work in 2020 increased security challenges as employees remotely accessed company networks, files, and data — but the work landscape is shifting
again. Now, many businesses are implementing a hybrid work model, allowing employees to work both in the office and remotely. To ensure threats aren't brought into the network from remote workers coming into the office, IT security needs to focus on endpoints, email, and end users as the first line of defence.
The convergence of the rise of unsecured remote workers with the surge in cybercrime created a highly vulnerable state for small business. However, many of them don’t have endpoint-related security layers beyond anti-virus. They need solutions that can provide visibility into distributed endpoints, layers of email protection, and end user training on remote security best practices and phishing awareness.
