Consumerization of information technology and enterprise mobility have given rise to end-users’ demand for anywhere, anytime access to corporate data. While ignoring such requests is turning out to be risky for enterprise IT because of Shadow-IT, many businesses have implemented enterprise file sharing (Enterprise File Sync and Share – EFSS) solutions as an alternative to Dropbox.
But just implementing a secure enterprise file sharing solution is not the end to the IT decision makers’ woes.

It was an eye opener for other geographies as well.
