In recent months, we have seen fundamental changes to our security assumptions with employees, contractors, and customers working remotely amid a global pandemic. The rapid transition from an office-based working environment to the work-from-home environment has presented challenges to IT teams trying to ensure endpoint security on open unprotected networks.
