Assess Current Policies Around File Sync and Share Services
One third of respondents either have no policies to protect data shared via unsanctioned applications, or their policies do not bar these tools at all. Of course, having stated policies is one thing, but actually enforcing them is another, and if the most popular apps are not actually restricted, widespread circumvention is likely. But given the demand for these cloud services, simply banning them without providing an alternative is short-sighted. Consider introducing an approved and supported enterprise-grade system, possibly as an interim, but ensure that it has strong security options and user access controls.
