LONDON -- (BUSINESS WIRE) --
Dimension Data, the USD7.5 billion global ICT solutions and services provider, today published a ¹white paper that examines the need for organisations to transform in order to

allow employees to work in more mobile workspaces. In fact, enterprises that fail to offer employees a flexible, autonomous, and creative work environment are at risk of not

attracting and retaining next-generation talent. However, most workspaces are not ready for the cyber threats of tomorrow.

Called Securing Workspaces for Tomorrow, the white paper explores the topic of how employees across the globe are already demanding a more mobile workplace, with the flexibility

to work from anywhere, any time, on any device, in order to become more productive and achieve work-life balance.
“But,” warns Matthew Gyde, Dimension Data Group Executive – Security, “because mobile users access the Internet on the go, they’re more vulnerable to attacks as they may

not have the same level of security as within the office perimeter.”
Tony Walt, Dimension Data Group Executive – End-user Computing says, “Mobility is not just a preference, but a necessity which will inadvertently introduce complexity, as it

relates to maintaining the integrity of the ‘secured workspace for tomorrow’.”
As more enterprises aspire to create future workspaces and harness the benefits of a mobile workforce that leverage cloud platforms, there’s a greater need to implement

appropriate measures to secure data, infrastructures, applications, and users wherever they may reside. The devices, environment, applications, emerging technologies all connect

to the Internet, potentially opening up avenues for cyber criminals to exploit the vulnerabilities of the new workspace.
“While the mobile endpoint is a potential game changer for businesses, it exposes mobile workers to security risks and vulnerabilities, as they’re not protected by

enterprise-grade security,” explains Gyde.
Some highlights in the Securing Workspaces for Tomorrow white paper include:
• Smart offices: the Internet of Things brings the Internet of Threats: The IoT-enabled workspaces for the future deliver a degree of control and customisation that was

not achievable in the past. However, these smart devices and their hubs could be more susceptible to cyber attacks, as they’re typically designed with only basic security

features.
• Cyberattacks are mostly undetected: they’re often hiding in encrypted HTTPS traffic, or in legitimate files such as word and PDF
• End users are identified as the weakest link and an internal threat: 54% of security professionals worldwide view phishing / social engineering as one of the two most

common threat techniques
• Cyber criminals could target Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) platforms: if data in transmission to the cloud is intercepted or residing in the cloud without proper

encryption, it becomes an instant gold mine waiting for its discoverers
• Blocking threats through context-aware security analytics: Context-Aware Security Analytics can be used to quickly detect a broad range of advanced attacks such as

volumetric DDoS, zero-day malware, and insider threats. Along with continuous lateral monitoring across enterprise networks with user, device and application awareness, the

solution accelerates incident response, improves forensic investigations and reduces enterprise risk
