Empower Your Remote Workforce

These uncertain times have caused a fundamental shift in the way we work. Offices are slowly opening back up. Some employees can’t wait to return, while others want to continue to work from home.

This remote work culture isn’t going away any time soon. We have given birth to the hybrid work culture that has been adopted and widely accepted to be much more productive than the in-office work culture. Despite a tumultuous year in 2020, remote workers report a Workforce Happiness Index of 75 out of 100, compared to 71 for in-office employees. And, remote employees are more likely to report being satisfied with their jobs than office-based workers (57 per cent vs. 50 per cent).

However, with all this said, this culture leaves the remote worker vulnerable to significant security attacks because many organisations haven’t fully developed their remote security environment. Want to learn how you can securely empower your remote workforce? Let’s walk you through it.
