We obviously are seeing adoption of those cloud services because they are so easy to use. It is very easy to just use a cloud file sync and share service instead of an FTP setup that your company has, or a VPN connection that your company gives your employees.
How important security actually is?
Because 20% of the global workforce telecommute, they are using their mobile devices for work files, anywhere and everywhere and if they lose files or if they lose devices then your files of the company are in jeopardy.
45% of businesses use consumer cloud size to share sensitive business information like financial files, quarterly reportings, revenue goals etc. 30% of employees have used unapproved cloud storage services for work related files, which could be a severe security threat for businesses.
63% of businesses use remote storage devices like USB drives to transfer confidential work files, and remember those files on those drives are not encrypted so anybody who gets access to those drives does have access to your company data.
One data breach could be devastating because your company data is digital most of the time and those files could be exposed.
Security Concerns with Consumer-grade File Sync and share solutions
The biggest security concerns when using a consumer-grade file sync and share software is the threat of outside attackers that can lead to data loss or theft. That is something a lot of people that are using cloud storage services are concerned about.
