How cloud services leave enterprises vulnerable to data theft
Workers excessively sharing documents in the cloud is a security problem. IT needs to get more on top of it, a new report says.

ShadowIT is the result of users needing to fulfill their tasks under day to day pressure and stress and where the internal systems don’t support them.It doesn’t matter if you have installed the very best system and most advanced secure communication “rooms” if it’s too difficult to use or takes too long to set it up. If, for instance, the procurement department need to send specs to potential suppliers they cannot go through a week long process of having the IT department administrate setup, invites and user credentials. Not when the alternative is available in the cloud. And not when you are paid and measured on running multiple procurement projects in parallel.
The only security system worth anything is the one that gets used in real life. The rest is a waste of money and time.
