Hardware Security Aspects of WFH

Hardware Security

Sepio’s research team has been examining the effect of work from home and the hardware security aspect of WFH these past weeks. The data for this analysis was collected from our Sepio cloud service, which managed large volumes of endpoints with their peripheral devices and accessories.

We found that there was an increase of 42% in the number of devices connected to corporate endpoints. This was compared with the pre-COVID period. Additionally, it is important to note not only the number of connected devices, but also the fact that we now see almost three times the number of different device vendors. Many of which are no-brand unrecognized cheap devices that are not common in the enterprise environment.
