ScanSafe released data today that shows remote workers working from outside the office are up to no good online much more than their office bound counterparts. According to the 8 billion Web requests processed by the company in March roaming workers are more likely to visit certain types of websites.

The data shows that remote workers were 8.5 times more likely to visit illegal file sharing sites, 2.5 times more likely to visit porn sites, and 5.2 times more likely to visit so-called extreme websites.
"It's no surprise that Web browsing habits change when employees are outside of the physical confines of their office and away from the watchful eye of supervisors and colleagues," says Dan Nadir, vice president of product strategy at ScanSafe. "What is surprising is that there is such a huge increase in requests for what most organizations would deem highly offensive sites and in some cases illegal content -- including the download of copyrighted material. If your employees are using a corporate-issued laptop to download illegal music files from home, your organization could be liable."
