WHY: "The growing chasm between what mobile workers want and what IT departments can secure is causing friction for all industries. A recent AIIM survey reported that 70 percent of respondents expressed they are 'concerned' and another 20 percent 'extremely concerned' about mobile file sharing. There is clear need for organizations to develop mobile content access policies and functionality," said Yorgen Edholm, CEO of Accellion. "The growing use of mobile is changing how employees access corporate information, and organizations need to respond by implementing new mobile policies and processes, or risk data breaches and compliance issues."
