The BYOD trend continues to prove that employees will take any and all steps to be productive, whether their IT managers realize it or not.
Recent research from Ovum suggests that IT administrators are totally unaware of around 30 to 35 percent of all employee-owned devices being brought into the workplace. That means company data is potentially being exposed to and shared on devices that many IT admins don't even know exist.
On top of that, 22 percent of full-time employees use their own file sync and share app to store work data. As a result, SMB data is potentially being stored in locations that are completely invisible to the IT manager.
