Net-Security.org – 44% of companies don’t have a cloud app policy in place

After interviewing 120 RSA Conference attendees, Netskope announced the results of the survey on information security professionals’ use of cloud apps.

Netskope found that despite widespread adoption of cloud apps in the enterprise, most IT security professionals are either unaware of their company’s cloud app policy or don’t have one. In the absence of cloud app policies, more than two-thirds of attendees surveyed said they would consider their company’s privacy policy before downloading an app.

As cloud apps proliferate in the enterprise, the security and privacy risks associated with use of these apps at work is on the rise. According to the recent Netskope Cloud Report, the typical enterprise is using 397 apps, or as much as 10 times the number that IT typically has within its purview. Furthermore, 77 percent of cloud apps are not enterprise-ready, leaving IT with the challenge of securing these apps and putting policies in place to guide their use.
