IT and security response to the coronavirus pandemic was heroic. Although many organizations had some degree of remote-work capabilities pre-COVID-19, the past year brought this work to new levels.
Enterprise security has had to quickly evolve alongside the shift to remote work and cloud adoption. For example, companies successfully ramped up VPN infrastructure, shifted to online models of collaboration software, and re-examined security policies in light of a highly distributed workforce.
Yet, these changes are only the beginning; a recent survey conducted by IDG and Comcast Business has revealed that organizations will increase their investments in remote IT operations and cybersecurity to better support remote work.
