Flexible working and BYOD trends are putting more pressure on IT organisations, who are struggling to accommodate these trends and comply with corporate security requirements. A growing dispersed workforce and the need to collaborate and share data with customers, partners and other external users add to this complexity. End users have increasingly turned to unsecure, consumer-style cloud services for access to their data and files across all of their devices, and to share those files with others.
Do you know where all of your data is? We have seen it countless times, users sending files to their personal email addresses, uploading documents to consumer cloud storage services or even transferring documents to personal tablet and mobile devices. Why is this happening? Is it malicious? In most cases the answer is No. Users are trying to find smarter and more effective ways to work, emailing documents to themselves so they can continue working on them at home or uploading a document to drop box so it can be accessed on an iPad and read on the train.
