Remote work is here to stay. Most companies have said they will implement or have already implemented permanent remote work policies. That’s in addition to an already active mobile workforce – though many of them also have access to new tools following the unprecedented events of the past year. One of the biggest questions facing companies is how to secure all those remote workers, regardless of where they are connecting to corporate services.
