What happens when employees go around IT and use their own Dropbox-like services, webmail or USB drives to send company information? This behavior presents significant security and compliance risks including: Loss of control over who has access to files and data, lack of visibility and audit trails, risk of data breaches and compliance violations.
This Osterman Research white paper sponsored by Ipswitch File Transfer provides an in depth discussion of the issues and key topics around person-to-person file sharing within businesses, including the need for improvements in how files are shared and why IT needs to provide and manage file sharing.
Osterman also covers the questions to ask when choosing a file sharing solution.
