“Work from home” culture has burdened IT teams with additional responsibilities

“Work from home” culture has burdened IT teams with additional responsibilities

Recently, AppOmni, a provider of SSPM, made some of its findings from a security survey public. In the reports, security concerns of cloud SaaS applications were highlighted, and it was stressed that the security requirement is at an all-time high due to people now working from home. Close to 200 IT workers participated in the survey and 66 percent of the respondents had mentioned that if there were an outage in their public SaaS application, there would be a disruption. COVID-19 has forced many enterprises to fast-track their adoption of new technologies to support remote working. Conventional hurdles in the adoption of new technologies can be effectively avoided by leveraging SaaS.

AppOmni’s study has mentioned that 90 percent of the survey participants have recently been given extra responsibilities, and more than 2/3rd are finding it very difficult to maintain those responsibilities. Furthermore, it was mention that more than 68 percent of the respondents rely on manual exposure to detect data exposure. The method adopted by the companies is not practical, nor is it cost-effective to hire more staff for having an in-house team of experts in SaaS applications. IT teams are struggling now to stay put with the rapid changes due to COVID-19. This makes it clear that companies must work better to stay ahead of the curve.
