With the influx of consumer-grade online file-sharing solutions (such as Dropbox, Google Drive, or OneDrive) and Bring-your-own-device (BYOD), distributing information has become easier than ever. As a result, it is now easier for cororate information to fall into the wrong hands intentionally or unintentionally.
With over 200 million users, Dropbox has become the predominant leader for mobile file access. Unfortunately, what works for family pictures does not work with corporate files. In most cases, consumer-grade file sharing services present unacceptable security, legal and business risks in a business environment.
Dropbox poses many challenges to businesses that care about control and visibility over company data. Allowing employees to utilize Dropbox can lead to massive data leaks and security breaches.
Many companies have formal policies or discourage employees from using their own accounts. But while blacklisting Dropbox may curtail the security risks in the short term, employees will ultimately find ways to get around company firewalls.
The best way for businesses to handle this is to deploy a company-approved application that will allow IT to control the data, yet grants employees the access and functionality they feel they need to be productive.
