Switzerland and the Netherlands tied as the most secure places for remote workers, according to research by Proxyrack, which gave both countries an overall remote worker security score of 7.62 out of 10.

The United Kingdom ranked third (7.55), followed by Singapore, Luxembourg, and Denmark. The United States ranked seventh.

The report weighs factors that may impact remote worker connectivity and safety, including the percentage of the population with access to a VPN, the number of people with Internet access, the number of 5G hotspots per 100,000 people, and how the countries rank in the National Cyber Security Index.
