With 80% of employees using non-approved SaaS apps, Shadow IT has officially stepped out of the shadows and into the workplace.

 

File sharing and collaboration tools

 

The most frequently requested cloud services are file sharing and collaboration. When IT can't provide easy, mobile solutions, business users turn to unauthorized apps, some of which put corporate information at risk. 

 

Give business users what they want

 

There is no reason to stay in the dark about Shadow IT. This is the perfect opportunity to partner with the business to give them exactly what they want with a solution that is secure, scalable, and enterprise-ready. File sharing and collaboration tools in Office 365 are easy to use and provide mobile productivity for all business users.
