One in four admit employees use ‘unofficial’ cloud file-sharing

From Information Age

“A quarter of organisations admit that their employees are using 'unofficial', cloud-based file-sharing services to share content and collaborate, according to a survey by information management professional body AIIM.

AIIM surveyed over 500 of its members to gauge the current state of content management. It found that 9% of respondents see 'unofficial use' of 'business-grade' cloud file-sharing services in their organisations, and 16% see ‘consumer-grade’ services in use.

Only 16% had an official, cloud-hosted file-sharing system for employees to use.

AIIM said that the use of unsanctioned cloud file-sharing services is ‘frequently driven by the need to share information with third-party organisations or partners’.

When it came to mobile access to company content, 22% of respondents see employees using their own mobile devices outside or in absence of a BYOD policy. Over 30% said there was a BYOD policy in place, while 57% said employees use company-issued devices to access content.”
