The significant increase in the number of remote employees due to the COVID-19 pandemic has expanded the cyber-attack landscape and it’s no surprise to see the number of threats follow suit.CISO’s have had to rethink their network strategy as traditional methods of securing corporate networks no longer work. They need to provide enterprise-grade security through branch offices to protect against sophisticated multi-vector Gen V cyber-attacks.
