As the way people work continues to evolve with more companies moving to a cloud-based computing model, security remains top of mind for IT teams tasked with giving endusers secure, productive access to cloud-delivered digital workspaces. The typical workforce is now much more widely distributed than ever before, with many people now working from home or at least subscribing to a “hybrid” model that may include working from home, at the office, or almost anywhere else. And oftentimes on endpoint devices of choice in addition to company asset-tagged “work devices”.
This wide geographical distribution of workers, coupled with a broader range of disparate user devices, presents some unique security challenges. IT teams need to continue to assign, invoke, and enforce company usage policies regardless of where people are working from, or what endpoint device(s) they are using. In this session, we’ll discuss some strategies that can allow IT to retain endpoint security with full end-user management and control, while still giving people the freedom to work where and how they choose.
