The COVID-19 pandemic and the shift to contactless commerce is driving major changes in business models and forcing business leaders to re-think the way they operate – particularly as local governments require or recommend employees work from home. Under normal circumstances, businesses would make this shift over an extended period of time to ensure a seamless transition. However, the pandemic forced a sudden and massive shift to work-from-home which added more stress to already stretched IT teams, and often creating new security challenges.
In the new 2020 Remote Workforce Cybersecurity Report, Fortinet explores the challenges of remote working and how organizations of all sizes are planning to support the new normal. In fact, nearly a third of businesses who moved to a remote work model now say that at least half of their employees will continue to work remotely even after the pandemic has passed.
