In today's rapidly evolving technological landscape, SaaS applications have been essential in driving efficiency and promoting collaboration. But the benefits of the cloud also bring new risks, and securing your organization against a vast array of cloud security threats can be a unique challenge.
If you are wondering whether your firm needs network detection and response (NDR), ask yourself this question: How often did your team come into the office in the last week? Probably more than they did last year, but almost certainly daily. This is what work now looks like for most people. And if this describes your organisation, you need an extra layer of defence inside your network perimeter. To see why, just look at what has happened to the network perimeter itself.
The move to hybrid work environments came suddenly for some organizations, while for others, it had been building incrementally. Regardless of how it happened, few came to it with a strategic plan for how IT would handle it. The result has been myriad challenges that span the physical and digital. On the digital front, one of the biggest challenges is related to secure file sharing.
Remote or hybrid work have become the de facto standard for many companies, post-pandemic, as more employees demand more flexible workplace policies. Therefore, organizations looking to support hybrid work will require a long-term strategy that ensures their infrastructure is equipped to securely facilitate this new flexible work environment.

The global COVID-19 pandemic has left lasting effects on the workplace across all sectors. With so many people required to stay home, businesses in every field turned to remote work to open new possibilities for staying connected across distances.
Remote work is no longer a trend — in 2022, remote workers represented 30% of the overall workforce. Cloud services and mobile devices have made the work environment more flexible, and organizations have implemented bring-your-own-device (BYOD) policies to enable employees who are working from anywhere to get more done.
Today, Netskope partnered with the Cloud Security Alliance to release the Data Loss Prevention (DLP) and Data Security Survey Report, a survey focused on data protection needs in cloud and hybrid work environments. Unsurprisingly, the report found that the biggest pain point organizations identify with trying to modernize their data protection strategy is that current DLP deployments show limitations when it comes to cloud and remote work use cases, and they are a nightmare to manage.
Hybrid work, which involves splitting the working week between in-office and remote work time, is the new normal that many companies have been adapting to after the COVID-19 pandemic crisis forced them to work remotely to continue providing services. A recent study indicates that, in fact, 58% of companies have been encouraged to promote a hybrid return to the office. In addition, it estimates that 48% of employees will be following a hybrid or remote model in the next two years.
The Covid-19 pandemic has changed the way we work forever. Although some part of the workforce returned to the office as soon as restrictions loosened, many employees wish to continue working remotely. According to data from Gartner, 60% of knowledge workers are remote, with at least 18% not planning to return to the office anytime soon. A hybrid office is a great option for both types of workers.
