? for network admins - cloud based apps?
I am hearing rumors at my workplace that a new policy is forthcoming that will essentially prohibit the use of cloud based applications. Not sure of the details, etc. but I have heard that definitely applications such as Evernote and Dropbox will no longer be allowed.
Have also heard that there is a possibility that the policy may prohibit use of any web-based application as well.
I am a heavy user of Evernote, and other cloud based tools. While I recognize the potential security concerns with data kept on the web, the productivity these tools provide are incredible.
Just curious how other companies manage this issue. Are there ways to make these applications secure enough to be used in a corporate system?
Appreciate your thoughts and experiences with this issue.
