The Future of IT Network Security

July 12, 2021

It’s no secret that the sudden drastic changes in the way we work over the past nine months have negatively impacted user experience and increased cybersecurity risk. IT departments have scrambled to empower newly remote employees, seeking ways to enable ubiquitous application access and improve network performance. But the acceleration of the Future of Work has come at a cost. Business continuity concerns have caused organizations to focus on improving the user experience for remote employees at the expense of security and IT professionals know this isn’t sustainable. Menlo’s new research report captures the concerns of IT professionals at U.S. based organizations as they grapple with the acceleration of digital transformation in the age of COVID-19.
