Organizations worldwide faced the serious dilemma of how to address cybersecurity concerns when 80% of employees are working from home. The valuable insights from the leading CXOs about endpoint security during the COVID19 pandemic period give a glimpse of what the future may hold for the industry.
COVID-19 pandemic has had a profound impact on the perception organizations had about endpoint security. Now that BYOD has become a necessity rather than just an emerging trend, organizations have started to take security concerns more seriously than ever. Companies need more coverage of the endpoints that are working remotely. With the continuation of social distancing in 2021, companies will move away from shared/networked computers towards supporting employees on their personal devices. As per the survey by AlltheResearch.com, around 33% of enterprises proclaimed that provisioning remotely operating devices and VPNs was a key challenge for them, while 43% experienced cyberattacks. This will require consistent authentication practices that support in-office as well as remotely working employees. Multi-factor authentication is expected to be one of the most trending modes of endpoint security in near future.
