The just-released Acronis Cyber Readiness Report, which surveyed 3,400 global companies and remote workers in the wake of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, revealed that 92% of the companies surveyed say they’ve adopted new technologies to enable remote work, including workplace collaboration tools, privacy solutions, and endpoint cybersecurity.
Only 12% of global employees chose full office work as an ideal work arrangement. A new normal will likely emerge. Among the 33% favouring “50% office / 50% remote” split, there are the following EU country-level outliers: Sweden – 40%, the Netherlands – 39%, Italy – 39%, Germany – 38%.
The report reveals that as hackers target remote workers, phishing, distributed denial of service (DDoS), and videoconferencing attacks are the most common tactics used.
The findings illustrate why organisations need a cyber protection solution that reduces complexity and improves security while remaining cost-effective.
The changing cyber threat landscape demands modern protection
“Traditional stand-alone antivirus and backup solutions are unable to protect against sophisticated modern cyberthreats in a dramatically changing environment.” said Serguei “SB” Beloussov, founder and CEO of Acronis. Hence, organisations that modernise their stack with integrated data protection and cybersecurity not only gain greater security, but benefit from cost reduction and other scale effects. “The automation and streamlined management of Acronis Cyber Protect 15 means any business can decrease their risk, avoid downtime, and increase their IT team’s productivity,” the founder and CEO of Acronis added.
With Acronis Cyber Protect 15’s unique integration of data protection and next-generation cybersecurity capabilities organisations protect against modern cyberthreats while ensuring they can recover their data and systems faster than any other solution.
