In the wake of the pandemic, we are increasingly immersed in a hybrid working environment. The remote work revolution that began in the early days of Covid has now morphed into hybrid work. This means that organizations have to be prepared to meet workers where they are, and that could be anywhere. 

Work is now a thing we do, not a place we go, so employees need the ability to be productive no matter where they are. Since 98% of remote meetings have a remote participant joining, security needs to be at the forefront of organizations’ agendas.

On this episode of eXcellerate, Chris Poe and Mark Stephens discuss how security architecture must continue to evolve alongside the hybrid work landscape. 

Press play to learn what hybrid work organizations need to focus on, why technology integration is so important, whether firewalls are still relevants today, and how organizations are dealing with the shortage of cybersecurity workers. 

Stick around until the end to hear Mark define the hottest industry buzzwords. Are his definitions what you think of when you hear these terms?
