As inflation reaches record highs, the fear of recession rises concomitantly. According to a recent Bloomberg survey, the chance of a recession is nearly 50%. This means less shopping, less investing, less risk taking, and less money in the market. For many organizations, this means finding savings any way they can.
Most industries spend less than 7% of their revenue on IT, which is not nearly enough when you consider the potential threats. Tech and software companies are spending 11% and 18% respectively because they have a much better understanding of how their business can face significant legal, repetitional, and infrastructure challenges with just one successful attack.
Furthermore, with more employees working remotely or in hybrid situations, businesses need to find new ways to protect their company’s data and applications, wherever, whenever, and however their employees are accessing them – whether on-prem or on the cloud. This is especially important when employees are using their own devices.
What options remain for businesses looking to find a sustainable solution to the ever-growing cybersecurity challenges?

This eliminates the need for training and keeps operations running smoothly, even during onboarding. Plus, adding new users is simple. No additional performance tuning or endpoint resource monitoring is required.
SURF Security identity-first, zero-trust web browser enables employees and contractors to work wherever, whenever, and however they want without affecting business cost or operations.
