Identity Security Is Essential For The Future Of Work
The workforce has become increasingly more virtual over the past several months as companies large and small embraced remote working arrangements.
However, with the increased digitization also comes the increased risk of cybersecurity threats. Without recognizing the potential safety issues that come from a distributed workforce, leaders leave their company and employees exposed.

The report also showed that 85% of executives believe that investments into identity security are essential to workplace mobility and the user experience.
This shift means that organizations need to seriously consider investing in identity and access security technology to incorporate a zero-trust security model for distributed workers.
