Cloud File Storage Can Be a Shadow Threat
#BlueCoat Elastica Cloud Threat Labs released the latest edition of the Shadow Data Report on cloud file storage, which covers the first half of 2016. The research focused on the risks enterprises face when they adopt popular cloud file storage and sharing apps. Researchers analyzed more than 15,000 enterprise cloud apps as well as 108 million enterprise documents stored and shared within these apps. They also considered the types of data that enterprises will expose in this kind of cloud use. The report found that most apps fail to achieve compliance with common but recently adopted U.S. and European standards, such as SOC 2 and the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).
