During the period of March 2020, we looked at a sample size of 41,000 US-based organizations to understand the difference between corporate networks and Work From Home-Remote Office (WFH-RO) networks from a cyber-risk perspective.
Some attributes of Work from Home - Remote Office Networks:
- 3.5x more likely than corporate networks to have at least one family of malware
- 7.5x more likely to have at least five distinct families of malware
- Common families of malware are extremely prevalent including Mirai, which is observed 20x more frequently, and Trickbot which is observed 3.75x more frequently
Services & Remote Management Exposure:
- More than 25% of all devices have one or more services exposed on the internet
- Almost 1 in 7 WFH-RO IP addresses have exposed cable modem control interfaces
