The cloud storage security challenge

Organisations are paying closer attention to the bring your own device (BYOD) trend but what about bring your own software (BYOS) and its poster child Dropbox?

There are not just risks to your business introduced by employees' increasing desire to bring their own devices into the office - a phenomenon known as "Bring Your Own Device" or "BYOD".

There's also the associated issue of "BYOS", or "Bring Your Own Software/Service".

I spoke about this issue at the SC Congress in New York City last year.

One of the standout leaders in the BYOS cloud storage arena is Dropbox.
