London: Reacting to a New York Times story about the governance issues that portable devices and their leaky apps create for companies, Varonis Systems says that mobile access to cloud-based data - and replication to the device itself - has become the new corporate norm. “Organisations are losing track of where their critical data is stored, so controlling, monitoring and auditing that data is becoming more and more difficult. IT must be able to offer the functionality that its end users need to collaborate, but without losing control”, says David Gibson, VP of Strategy with the data governance specialist.

 

"I've actually lost count of the number of times this New York Times business editorial references leading edge IT concepts such as apps and cloud services, but the reality is that - as witnessed by the business pages this article appears - this really is the new norm. This creates a raft of security headaches in the shape of unsecured devices, as well as the aforementioned leak apps and cloud services. And it's against this backdrop that critical data needs to be identified, managed and protected with an effective data governance platform - without hindering employees’ work," he says.

"I think it's very revealing that the NYT feature notes that, even without proof of compromised accounts, data losses can prove costly in terms of money and reputation - especially given that the US Securities and Exchange Commission mandates that data leaks caused by unsecured devices, leaky apps or poor cloud security, must be announced publicly if the information potentially affects a company’s share price," he added.
