There are potentially alarming responses to our global pandemic related questions in our Mid-Year Report. All respondents completed the survey between May 17th and June 8th. Most migration to remote work happened in the last two weeks of March. That means that all respondents were defending the enterprise with a remote workforce for at least six weeks when they completed the survey.

2 in 5 have not changed approach

When asked “Has your approach to security changed as a result of the global pandemic and an increasingly remote
workforce?” 39.89% said no.
