As employees and partners collaborate through file sync and sharing services, sensitive data is often put at risk of compromise and non-compliance.

Mobility offers a significant opportunity to improve collaboration and drive business forward. But as with many opportunities there are obstacles to overcome, like the new trend of anytime/anywhere collaboration.

The consumerisation of IT has established a level of expectation with employees - they now require the ability to communicate in the form that they choose. Whether it's email, files or social media, employees demand mobile and cloud flexibility to improve productivity and drive business forward.

The traditional approach of controlling information within enterprise boundaries has inhibited business from moving forward. As employees begin to go around IT, the business loses control and lacks visibility into sensitive data.

This unsanctioned file sharing creates serious security and regulatory compliance issues, which means the IT department is challenged with regaining that control while still enabling the business.

In order to move business forward, data, often sensitive, must be communicated across boundaries. Organisations need an intelligent way to identify what data is sensitive and how to control it in a way that promotes collaboration versus stifling it.

In fact, according to research from the Enterprise Strategy Group, Intermedia and Commvault:

  • 70% of IT professionals know of or suspect rogue online file sharing by employees
  • 68% of employees store work-related information in personal sync-and-share solutions
  • 84% of Dropbox users still have access to a previous employer's systems
  • 64% of IT organisations are not backing up and ensuring recoverability of non-PC endpoints
