Europe’s leading independent provider of IT infrastructure services, Computacenter, has outlined the most common consumer cloud risks as part of newly conducted research.
 
As found within this research, 84% of employees are accessing and sharing company data using consumer cloud solutions like Dropbox and SkyDrive.
 
Computacenter conducted research amongst 150 IT decision makers and the findings highlight the risks and the need for action, offers insight into what can be done, and also shows how important the issue of the consumer cloud really is.
 
As noted in the research, over half of the IT decision makers surveyed stated that data falling into the wrong hands or compliance breaches were amongst the biggest worries from using consumer cloud.
 
“It’s imperative that businesses address this problem now. It’s clear that everyone knows the risks of consumer cloud products, but until the correct solutions are put in place... Employees will continue to use them whatever the consequences,” explained Cloud Practice Leader, Paul Casey.
 
Computacenter can identify the right options for securing data and information in the cloud by providing solutions based on specific circumstances, needs and objectives. These solutions can help maintain IT security and improve IT processes to deliver better ways of working on the move and collaborating which match the attributes of commercial consumer cloud services.
