Synopsis

From detailed discussions with security teams at many large enterprises about the impacts COVID-19 has made on their business and what their "new normal" will look like as social distancing guidelines relax, a few consistent themes have emerged:

  1. The move to a remote workforce didn't impact productivity for these companies; in some areas, productivity increased.
  2. Given the relative ease of transitioning to WFH and because productivity wasn't impacted, many organizations are shifting to a model to support more WFH on a long-term, ongoing basis, with reducing costs related to office space, physical infrastructure and even commuting cited as some of the key drivers.
  3. Digital transformation projects such as cloud adoption, SD-WAN and SASE are accelerating as budgets are being cut from other projects.

All of this has a significant impact on security teams. Initially, they're having to deal with items related to their organization's business continuity plans (e.g., increased deployment of VPNs and other remote access capabilities, modifications to firewalls and other controls to enable remote access to corporate resources). These changes have extended a company's attack surface significantly more than where it was prior to the outbreak. Combined with increasingly hostile cyber-threats, new mission-critical IT projects and ever-present compliance requirements, security teams could be quickly overwhelmed putting the business at risk.

To overcome these challenges, organizations need to ensure they can execute the following:

  • Intelligently automate tasks to audit and monitor compliance of firewalls and VPNs to limit resource drain associated with these ongoing tasks
  • Unify visibility and centralize management of hybrid network infrastructure and security controls (e.g., traditional, next-gen and cloud firewalls)
  • Focus remediation on vulnerabilities exposed to threat origins with active exploits and monitor for changes in exposure/exploitability
