Security concerns with public cloud services impact implementation practices in compliance-focused enterprises.
Dynamic file sharing across multiple platforms is becoming the new normal in workplaces across all industries, creating an urgent need for large and highly-regulated enterprises to implement electronic file sharing solutions (EFSS) that do not compromise data security. A new Hanover Research study explored how companies are adapting to this business need by achieving productivity and security throughout the enterprise file sharing and management process. The research serves as a warning to companies that have historically avoided the adoption of practices that might jeopardize organizational control of sensitive data, as the most dangerous decision these enterprises can make is to do nothing.
Global demand for EFSS is expanding rapidly, as demonstrated by the industry's 400 %+ growth since 2010. In a market overcrowded with vendors, enterprise IT leaders must identify solutions that support mobile data sharing while avoiding security lapses, illicit access, exposed files, service outages, and other risks commonly associated with employee use of public cloud solutions. In interviews with senior IT executives and industry experts, Hanover Research found an emerging consensus around the new capabilities that organizations require to meet emerging data security challenges.
This report was commissioned by Novell, Inc. and Attachmate Corporation in the fall of 2014. The study includes an evaluation of the global file sharing market and presents an analysis of highly-regulated enterprises' requirements for electronic file sharing solutions based on original interviews conducted with knowledgeable industry sources.
