BYOD has been a key driver for online file sharing and collaboration (OFS). ESG’s research uncovered a very strong correlation between rogue online storage and file sharing usage (or suspicion thereof) and the surge of mobile devices in an organization. The more growth in alternative endpoint devices, the more likely an organization is to know that their employees are using rogue OFS services. See the ESG Research Brief: Spotting and Stopping Rogue Online File Sharing Accounts for more information on these trends and the headaches for IT that stem from employees’ mobile devices.
