Never before have IT professionals faced so many security threats — not only measured in the pure number of daily attempts but in the variety and level of sophistication of attempts to penetrate network security systems.

IT professionals are now dealing with the following:

  • Thousands of new threats due to the increase in remote work
  • New and increasingly clever and innovative ransomware attacks
  • Continuous flood of phishing schemes
  • Increased need for ubiquitous multi-factor authentication (MFA)
  • Critical need for real-time visibility with the ever-growing decentralized tools and applications
  • Lack of highly knowledgeable cybersecurity professionals, in both CISO and engineering roles
  • Difficulties securing the workforce

With a sustained shift towards remote work, organizations are realizing their security perimeter is shifting. With more and more employees taking their work home, threat actors are leveraging this increased risk.
