90% of IT managers worried about insecure remote working

Almost 90% of IT managers are worried about potential insecure backdoors into their corporate networks as a result of increased remote working among staff.

Research commissioned by network hardware supplier ZyXEL among 200 IT managers, has found that 87% of them are worried about the risks caused by employees using home PCs and other remote endpoints to access enterprise networks.

With the company IT department being unable to vet or install controls on these computers, IT managers cannot monitor whether home users install patches or scan e-mail attachments for viruses, or whether they let careless family members use their machines.

ZyXEL said businesses should ensure that any remote access products they use can securely segment home traffic from work traffic.
