Survey: BYOD and File Sharing

By Jessica Vartabedian

Taneja Group, along with InfoStor and Enterprise Storage Forum, is conducting a very brief survey to better understand IT departments' experiences with Bring-Your-Own-Device (BYOD) programs and the file sharing and storage implications of these programs in the workplace.

BYOD in today’s working environment has become second nature. The major driver for end-users is sharing files between their computers and remote devices, and between members of their team. If the company lacks a BYOD file sharing plan then users turn to consumer-grade file sharing applications like Dropbox. However, these applications pose a real security risk and management problem for IT. We are very interested in hearing your own experience in managing BYOD file sharing, where users are sharing company files on remote personal devices.

This anonymous survey should take just 1 to 2 minutes to finish. The results of this survey will be posted to InfoStor as an in-depth article in the near future. As a thank-you for taking the time to fill out the BYOD Survey, you will receive a free, downloadable Taneja Group report, “Business File Sharing: Threat or Opportunity?” (no registration required).
