The way we work has changed. The imposed strict social distancing rules due to the global pandemic, combined with the growing representation of the digital-savvy millennials in the workforce were catalysts in moving organizations forward in their digital transformation journey to increase employee mobility.
However, this shift in workplace culture has increased the security risks brought about by the proliferation of BYO devices of employees that access resources via VPN. When not secured properly, these devices serve as additional entry points for cybercriminals to the organization’s network.
Key challenges in traditional security controls
Mishandling of data and misuse of network access have become a growing concern, increasing the demand for more control and visibility over the users’ granular access to permissions to data.
Threats that may come from malicious websites, such as spoofing web conferencing sites, should be isolated from the corporate network to protect corporate data.
Employees may knowingly (or unknowingly) access restricted websites such as pornographic or social media web pages. The organization must block those attempts to protect its assets.
To address these challenges is a big step forward for organizations to improve their digital transformation journey. Although this is easier said than done, Citrix may have the answer to help you address these challenges.
