Radware survey reveals remote work blind spots
SYDNEY, Sept 16 —The vast majority (83%) of C-level executives expect the changes they made in people, processes and applications as a response to the COVID-19 pandemic to become permanent (whether significant or partial), according to data from a report published today by Radware®.
Results show that a sudden and massive shift to remote work accelerated cloud migration, but the accelerated lift and shift along with heavy reliance on service providers for security leaves blind spots.
According to the report, C-Suite Perspectives: Accelerated Cloud Migration but Lagging Security, pandemic-driven changes affected various aspects of business, 44% of executives surveyed reported a negative impact on budgets, 43% reported a workforce reduction, while 37% reported reduced real estate footprints.
The pandemic accelerated the migration of business infrastructure and applications into the cloud. 76% of companies adopted cloud services faster than they had planned, while 56% of respondents said that the contactless economy, e-commerce, on-demand content, video conferencing, etc. had a positive impact on their business.
The quick migration helped to maintain business operations but potentially exacerbated cyber security gaps, due to an increased attack surface. 40% of survey respondents reported an increase in cyber attacks amid the pandemic. 32% said that they relied on their cloud provider’s security services to provide security management for their public cloud assets.
“The transition to remote work and new online contactless business models is not temporary and is affecting the future strategy on how organisations invest in cyber security,” said Anna Convery-Pelletier, Chief Marketing Officer at Radware.
“Normally, businesses would make this shift over an extended period of time. However, the pandemic forced a massive shift to remote work which is now creating new security challenges.”
“Before the pandemic, digital transformation was a long-term strategic goal for most businesses,” said Michael O’Malley, Vice President of Market Strategy for Radware. “On-demand content consumption, contactless payments, curbside pickups and remote work forces are now business imperatives. Executives must revisit what they’ve implemented to ensure that a lack of cyber security planning does not undermine their goals.”
Other key findings include:
Shift to remote operations: More than 80% of respondents said they believed more than 25% of their employees would work remotely in the future, a sharp contrast to pre-pandemic work-from-home policies, when only 48% of companies enabled more than 25% of their employees do so, and 6% did not enable remote work at all.
Emergence of new revenue models to support contactless economy: Roughly two in five respondents from the retail sector said they made real estate changes – including store closures.
Many retailers faced pressure to adopt practices that ease the customer experience, such as kerbside pickup, e-commerce, and increased use of contactless payments. More than any other sector, retailers reported the need to adopt cloud or hybrid cloud environments to make their networks more resilient, 57% said they plan to host their assets in either a public or private cloud environment by 2022.
Each year, Radware publishes the findings and analysis of a survey of senior executives to better understand the perceptions of current cybersecurity challenges and opportunities for C-suite level executives.
This year Radware worked with Enterprise Management Associates, Inc. (EMA) to conduct the global, online survey of 260 executives in July 2020 with nearly equal distribution of the respondents from AMER, EMEA and APAC. The respondents represent a wide range of industries with a minimum revenue of $250 million and that have 1000-9,999 employees.
