Dangerous File Sharing

To uncover the breadth of this issue, Globalscape asked more 530 U.S. professional employees about their information-sharing habits. Today’s workforce expects instant access to information, and the ability to send and receive data at the press of a button. When corporate technology and tools come up short, employees are forced to find a workaround. Most often, that workaround is a consumer-grade tool with inherent security flaws.

This report covers:

  • The unsanctioned tools that employees use to share sensitive company information
  • The security, compliance, and governance risks to enterprises
  • Why most IT policies and company-provided tools come up short
  • Steps for reigning in the risky information-sharing practices of employees
