First Annual Teradici Cybersecurity Survey Finds Companies Rapidly Adopting Zero Trust Instead of VPN to Secure Hybrid Workplaces

Teradic | November 17, 2021

Teradici, the creator of industry-leading PCoIP technology and Emmy Award-winning Cloud Access Software (CAS), announced results from its first-annual Corporate Cybersecurity Report – Securing the Hybrid Workplace in 2022 and Beyond. The survey, which polled more than 8,000 respondents across a range of industries, found that hybrid workplaces are the new norm, with 99% of respondents’ reporting their workforces will split time between the office and remote settings post-pandemic. The survey also found that concerns about endpoint security and data integrity are skyrocketing as Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) makes a comeback and employees commute with their devices.

“The pandemic has caused a fundamental shift in how people work, and the ‘office’ will never be the same. As a result of the enormous security concerns associated with unmanaged devices, as well as BYOD, organizations are changing how they think about securing their corporate assets. Expect to see companies move away from traditional VPNs to Zero Trust architectures to shore up their endpoints and protect their data.”

Ziad Lammam, Global Head of Teradici Product Management, HP

Key Findings

According to the survey:

  • Hybrid work is here for the long term: Virtually all respondents (99%) reported their companies will have a hybrid workforce, and nearly 40% expect half of their workforce to operate remotely at least twice a week post-pandemic. This will precipitate a number of changes to network environments and architecture due to significant security concerns. Device authentication and authorization must be taken seriously.
  • Even with fewer commuting days, workers’ treks are a security concern: The survey showed that 53% of respondents plan to enable employees to commute with endpoint devices, and this is a hot button of concern for IT. Nearly all respondents (98%) are concerned about security and/or data integrity as a result of employees commuting with endpoint devices.
  • BYOD is back: Of survey respondents, 90% say their companies are using a mix of employee- and corporate-owned devices; only 10% are predominantly using corporate-owned devices. The mix of devices will likely continue to escalate, with 74% of respondents reporting they expect more use of BYOD, and nearly 25% seeing increased need for device authorization to protect against data breaches.
  • To combat security concerns, organizations will move to remote access and Zero Trust architectures. Companies have largely relied on VPNs for employees to connect remotely, as many organizations have not yet completed their migration to the cloud. As hybrid work becomes the norm over the long term, remote desktop technologies with Zero Trust architectures will replace VPNs in an effort to better protect corporate networks. On top of this, IT will need to enhance the security awareness of employees to prevent human leaks and breaches.
