Cloud creates shadow IT applications and risks

January 14th, 2015

For everyone else, software-as-a-service is also "cloud," including such commonly used tools as Dropbox, Google Docs, and LinkedIn.

Company employees can easily go out and sign up for cloud services without any input from IT at all. Only 8 percent of companies know the scope of shadow IT at their organizations, according to a new survey by the Cloud Security Alliance.
