It’s Isolation, Tim, but Not As We Know It!

Posted by Mike East, VP EMEA on May 7, 2020

About three weeks into lockdown in the UK, I was out for my evening walk reflecting on how different the world had become in a very short space of time.  Having spent the majority of my career as a home-based employee, being forced to work remotely didn’t change how I work or indeed my daily routine, however I tried to put myself into the shoes of those who are normally office-based and think about how their world has changed, and how they would be coping without all the tools, equipment and routines they are used to and expect.

Time to Rethink How You Provide Secure Internet Access for Remote Workers

Posted by Mehul Patel on Apr 28, 2020

In my last blog , I explored how the COVID-19 global pandemic has accelerated the future of work. Literally overnight, the population of remote employees at most organizations went from 10 percent to 100 percent of the workforce. This has put an enormous strain on network architectures that were built on a traditional hub-and-spoke model that requires security to be delivered centrally. Both inbound and outbound traffic is backhauled through a VPN to the data center, where security policies are then applied—essentially extending data center control and visibility to remote workers.

Is COVID-19 Going to Accelerate the Future of Work?

Posted by Mehul Patel on Apr 21, 2020

Literally overnight, COVID-19 fundamentally changed the way we work. The future of work was always going to be remote, based in the cloud, and mobile. Trends were heading that way even before hundreds of millions of workers were ordered to shelter in place for the foreseeable future last month, but the change was supposed to be gradual—played out over the course of years or decades as technology enabled safe, secure access to the tools and information remote workers need to keep the business running. COVID-19 simply accelerated that trend—pushing the population of remote employees at most organizations from 10 percent to 100 percent of the workforce over the span of a few days.

SaaS Adoption Eliminates Visibility Into and Control Over Users’ Web Browsing Behavior

Posted by Mehul Patel on Apr 9, 2020

We’ve been talking a lot recently about how changing work habits will disrupt enterprise security in 2020. Workers are becoming increasingly mobile, and enterprises continue to move mission-critical systems to the cloud. The problem is that traditional security strategies are not able to keep up with the changing web traffic patterns and volumes caused by these workplace shifts. The result is a broken security stack  and increased costs .

Sophisticated COVID-19–Based Phishing Attacks Leverage PDF Attachments and SaaS to Bypass Defenses

Posted by Menlo Security on Apr 4, 2020

Menlo Security has detected a sophisticated, multi-stage attack leveraging the current COVID-19 pandemic. Our data has shown that COVID-19–based attacks are much more successful than typical phishing attacks. The global pandemic is literally a life-or-death situation that is changing constantly, and people are trying to stay up to date with the latest developments. Cybercriminals have noticed and are adapting their attack techniques to take advantage of the heightened level of global anxiety.

2020 Will Be the Year That SaaS Breaks Enterprise Security

Posted by Mehul Patel on Apr 1, 2020

There’s no doubt that the web is now the most important business tool for users. Critical systems such as ERP, CRM, collaboration and communication platforms, customer-facing apps, and other business tools that were once on-prem are moving to the cloud. Users can log on from anywhere and access all the information they need to conduct business on a daily basis.
