The acceleration of digital transformation and the expansion of both remote and hybrid workplaces brings new opportunities to organisations, communities, and individuals. Our work styles have transformed. And now more than ever, employees need simple, intuitive user experiences to collaborate and stay productive, wherever work happens. But the expansion of access and ability to work anywhere has also introduced new threats and risks. According to the new data from the Microsoft commissioned Security Signals report, 75% of security decision-makers at the vice-president level and above feel that the move to hybrid work leaves their organisation more vulnerable to security threats.
Approximately 80% of security decision makers say that software alone is not enough protection from emerging threats.
