How often do you see non-sanctioned cloud services in use?
Dropbox. Google Drive. MediaFire. Egnyte. Your organisation might not support them, but chances are your security team has seen one or more of these private clouds in use within an organisation.
“Rogue clouds” (private file sync-and-share options not supported or secured by an enterprise’s IT infrastructure) are creeping into organisations.
A 2013 survey by Symantec found that 77% of all businesses experienced rogue cloud situations.1 To eliminate rogue clouds, security teams should talk with their CTOs about which organisationally sanctioned cloud service is recommended.
From there, other members of leadership can weigh in on which solution will be most useful to their employees and business partners.
40% of organisations that experienced rogue cloud situations saw confidential data exposed.1
Talk with security teams about implementing organisationally supported cloud solutions. Enterprise-level solutions, like Microsoft OneDrive for Business, enable employees to save, share, and collaborate on documents without compromising data security.
