Unfortunately, what works for personal information like family pictures is not ideal for business.
In most cases, Dropbox’s quick to install, easy-to-use, consumer services present unacceptable security and legal risks in a business environment. This is even more important if your company has access to and/or stores financial, medical, legal, or other personally identifiable sensitive data. Using file-sharing applications can be a direct violation of data privacy and compliance laws. Bottom line, DON’T use them for company data and use only company-approved, business grade file-sharing applications.
Many cloud solutions don’t include backup services even if you choose a commercial grade solution. Even though data is still in the cloud, it can be destroyed through accidental or malicious deletion. If you are choosing a file sharing or cloud application, make sure it’s backed up!
Fortunately, Garner IT provides a great solution to your file-sharing woes. We offer a business grade solution for securely syncing data that has proven to work seamlessly in our own business, as well as many other businesses that we have implemented the solution for.
