Destructive firmware attacks now are a significant threat to your Business

With the onset of the Work from Home model, the work ecosystem underwent drastic changes and vulnerabilities in security systems are becoming more obvious. To start with is the global study of 1,100 IT leaders where HP Wolf Security found that: IT leaders are becoming more concerned about the threat of firmware attacks as more hybrid workers are connecting from home networks regularly.

The study states that 76 percent of ITDMs believe firmware attacks against printers pose a serious hazard. More than eight in ten (83 percent) IT leaders said firmware attacks against laptops and PCs now pose a substantial concern.

Further, according to HP Wolf security, when it comes to examining the security of firmware configuration, more than two-thirds of IT leaders (67 percent) think that the rise in home working has made it harder and more time-consuming to protect against, detect, and recover from firmware attacks. The ability to respond to endpoint firmware attacks is therefore a concern for 80% of IT leaders.

Device security is not often a top priority in the hardware selection process, despite the obvious threats that damaging firmware assaults provide to enterprises. Many of these organizations continue to deploy unsecure technologies. The emerging shadow IT, whereby employees buy and connect gadgets outside of IT's control while working remotely, is aggravating this problem.
