The Dangers of Dropbox

The Dangers of Dropbox & other file sync apps

work-from-home-file-sync-apps

When employees work from home, they need access to important company files.  It’s easy to look at consumer-grade, cloud file sharing solutions like Dropbox, OneDrive, and Google Drive.  But listen up!  

These applications pose a huge threat to your company because company data can be spread far and wide without central oversight of what information is being shared with whom.  Furthermore, over 7 MILLION Dropbox accounts have been hacked, giving cybercriminals a path into the company’s network. 

This is even MORE important if your company has access to and/or stores financial, medical, or other sensitive data.  Using file-sharing applications like these are a clear and direct violation of data breach and compliance laws.  DON’T USE THEM FOR COMPANY DATA and use only company-approved, business-grade file-sharing applications. 

Now that you know the dangers of dropbox, you can take the necessary precautions while working from home.
