Kristine Dahl Steidel, vice president EUC EMEA, VMware, pointed out that 74% of respondents in Italy recognize that their organisation is gaining benefits from distance work and that they can no longer go back. However, there is concern that management is not working hard enough to adapt and offer its employees greater choice and flexibility.

The increase in the distributed workforce, due to the pandemic, has amplified the proliferation of digital technologies and platforms in use. To stay operational, organizations are moving more and more applications to the cloud, with the creation of new information silos. With some employees choosing to stay at home, the mix of organizations’ devices is increasingly heterogeneous, as they adopt more flexible BYOD arrangements. As a result, each new device connected to a business network represents a possible attack vector for aspiring hackers. All these factors break the perimeter of corporate security, creating an additional need for zero trust security models.
