The home office is the new normal.
Remote working has been increasing regularly in the last few years. The need for security to access corporate applications from outside the office has grown in parallel.
Since the pandemic, this trend has kept accelerating dramatically.
Most companies are continuing new home office policies to adapt to the new way of working.

In this context, where the home office is the new normal, enterprises need to ensure a smooth and secure working environment so that networks are protected the same way for remote workers as those on-premises.
70% of remote workers are not aligned with corporate security policies.
According to Gartner, 70% of the employees are not aligned with the corporate policy rules, and enterprises need to deploy the right solutions to mitigate the potential risks.
This can partly be explained by organizations' reaction to Covid-19 when they were most concerned by business continuity and, in some cases, security was compromised.
In this situation, the main two cyber threats in the home office environment are identity theft and unencrypted data.
These security issues have been magnified during the last 24 months due to the scale of remote working, so enterprises need trusted solutions to protect their digital assets.
