This gist of this article is good, no one can deny that the business IT trend is moving relentlessly towards cloud. Unfortunately, the content of the article paints a picture of ‘shadow IT’. The use of ranges of third party applications to smooth the collaboration path has had its day in the corporate world and is in the process of being ruled as unsafe. Extensive use of file share apps such as Dropbox, extensively hacked in 2012, and others have led corporate CIOs to apply strict governance to cloud use. This had led to corporate business cloud migration moving strongly towards G-Cloud, Office 365 and AWS, the security of which can all be managed from a central source in any business. I would advise small business to follow that lead and place security and governance first. All of the functionality described in this article can be deployed for business of any size, even sole trader, with security levels that are better than local area network and extensive DLP (Data Loss Prevention) tools, from the Microsoft, Google and Amazon stables at very reasonable cost levels. Why increase business risk?
