Why the Dropbox Security Breach should have you deploying OneDrive for Business
I’ve said for a while that if you haven’t invested in a corporate-managed external file sharing software like Box, Dropbox, or OneDrive, then I guarantee at least some of your users have gone rogue and done it themselves. For a long time, corporate users have been frustrated with email attachments that are blocked and aging and unreliable ftp servers. As a result, many have resorted to creating their own personal Dropbox accounts. These personal accounts may be connected to personal email addresses or even a corporate email address. These personal Dropbox accounts are being used to transfer the corporate documents you are responsible for protecting. This is commonly encouraged by vendors and so your end users see it as harmless. Everyone does it. It’s possible that even the IT department isn’t overly concerned about it - I haven’t seen many IT departments drop everything to fix the problem. Before I explain my concern...let me start with a story.
