Teams have become more distributed in recent years, with remote work now commonplace. Some companies have failed to provide employees the training, equipment, and resources they need to keep data secure, however.
This survey finds that one in five employees in the UK have been directly involved in a security breach or loss of sensitive data. Researchers queried 2,000 employees across four industries that process sensitive data: financial services, healthcare, education, retail, and manufacturing.
The results show 91% of employees who have been involved in a security incident use personal devices to access sensitive data at work, with half of the group (51%) doing so without a robust device security policy in place.
A quarter (26%) of respondents are concerned about being involved in a cybersecurity incident or data breach in the future.
Security is vital when it comes to remote access and creating secure connections to devices. Each remote session is fully encrypted and integrated with the Impero Portal’s centralized roles and permissions.
The Portal provides you a comprehensive dashboard, with log files for users, devices and sessions stored in a single location. Impero also protects your business by offering granular controls, so you can grant device remote access based on IP address, location, time of day, or even at the whitelisted application level.
Since Impero offers the most secure remote access solution in market, IT admins can be confident that devices are accessible only by authorized users and groups. For an additional security layer, the Impero Portal has native multi-factor authentication – or it can be integrated with your existing MFA solution.
