Research from LogMeIn and IDG has revealed the new reality of long-term remote and flexible work.
IT leaders are increasingly concerned about security and scalability of the remote work tools adopted early in the pandemic to address the sudden shift to remote work. The surge in remote work exposed 66% of respondents to cyber risks, and IT help desks are struggling to securely support workers. As a result, 65% of those surveyed are actively consolidating remote work tools, citing the need for ease of administration, ease of use and scalability.
The statistics confirm that the pandemic has created a permanent shift toward remote work. With flexible work becoming the new business as usual, IT leaders will continue to be responsible for supporting technology. This means a well-thought-out plan for long-term, secure and efficient flexible support is more important than ever.
