Research shows that two-thirds of organizations have experienced breaches due to remote work

-

Remote work is here to stay. While it wasn’t clear whether the adoption of remote and hybrid working would continue beyond the COVID-19 pandemic, new research shows that decentralized working is likely to continue for the foreseeable future.

Fortinet is new Work-from-Anywhere Global Study published today, surveyed 570 companies and found that 60% are still housing employees who work from home, while 55% are embracing a hybrid work strategy.

However, the growth in work-anywhere adoption has created new security threats that organizations are struggling to address. For example, Fortinet’s research shows that 62% of companies had a data breach in the past 2 to 3 years that they could attribute at least in part to vulnerabilities of employees being able to work from anywhere.

The high number of breaches highlights that remote work not only carries theoretical risks, but also exposures that are actively exploited by threat actors to gain access to sensitive information.

The risks of remote working

Organizations cited a lack of cybersecurity training for hybrid workers as a top concern in go-anywhere environments, as well as how best to extend corporate security to home offices and remote locations.

The challenge of securing decentralized work environments is compounded by the fact that organizations have limited visibility into users’ home environments, branch offices, and remote locations. This makes ownership of assets unclear and it can be difficult to enforce zero trust access controls and deploy patches to devices.

While the report found that most organizations have not mitigated the risks of remote working, it did show that CISOs and security leaders are investing in new technologies to increase their cyber resilience.

More specifically, respondents cited network access control, anti-virus solutions, multi-factor authentication (MFA), and cloud security solutions such as cloud access security broker (CASB) as key tools for securing work-from-anywhere environments in the future.
