In the ‘new normal’, post-pandemic world, many companies will be faced with the decision to move to a fully remote or hybrid work environment. If you’re among the 95 per cent of organizations that allow personal devices in the workplace, you may be concerned about the extra risks they create. The shift brought on by the ‘new normal’ has made security a top concern, as leaders look to ensure the right people are accessing the right resources, while data is kept secure, no matter how, or where it’s accessed.

Furthermore, according to the latest study carried out by the ‘American Remote Work Survey’ 49 million remote workers report that it takes days and even weeks to get issues fixed. Organizations have a responsibility to ensure a secure and optimized digital user experience across endpoints, whilst reducing the total cost of ownership and scaling.
