As organizations look to the post-pandemic future, they’re now thinking about how to evolve their networking and security architectures to maintain the productivity benefits of hybrid work, while continuing to reduce the risk of significant security breaches.
To gain deeper insight into how organizations are making the shift to a hybrid workforce, Palo Alto Networks conducted one of the largest and most complete studies on the state of hybrid work security for the enterprise in the world, the State of Hybrid Work Security 2021 report. Researchers surveyed 3,000 enterprise participants worldwide to gain insight into the technology and tools used to enable remote workforces, the impacts of remote security on enabling the remote workforces, and the value of investments in network and security architecture.
View the State of Hybrid Work Security 2021 report to review study results like:
- 61% of participants struggled to provide the necessary remote security to support work-from-home capabilities
- 53% of organizations that prioritized remote access over security are now exposed to significant security risks from unchecked acceptable use policy violations and unsanctioned application usage
- 62% of respondents are considering a hybrid workforce solution
- 71% of organizations expect to have their security mostly or completely in the cloud over the next twenty-four months
