Today’s technology has brought a radical shift in the way we live, learn and work. Like many other innovations, the mobile workforce is an example of how it’s modernizing our lives.

The worldwide mobile workforce will increase from 1.45 billion people in 2016 to a whopping 1.87 billion by 2022, according to a recent Strategy Analytics report. Additionally, a survey report published by the International Workplace Group in 2018 reveals that 89% of professionals believe mobile workers can help grow their businesses. As a result, mobile has become a key driver of significant change in the business world, making network security more important than ever.

Increasing IT security risks for mobile workers

Nowadays, mobile devices work as an extended office that allow employees to be fully functional and productive, anytime and anywhere. However, cybersecurity specialists believe that the proliferation of the mobile workforce across the globe is taking a serious toll on data security.

Company stakeholders, including partners, vendors and employees, can access confidential business information from across the globe. This further increases the risk of a potential security breach by expanding the attack surface. Additionally, the paradigm shift to a well-diffused, user-centered network from a conventional on-premises network is exposing organizations to a number of new challenges.

Consequently, businesses are looking for a highly efficient and cost-effective solution that delivers secure network access to their distributed mobile workforces. And this is where Perimeter 81—one of the runners-up from our Comet Competition—comes to the rescue.
