Box and Dropbox are both popular solutions for cloud-based file sharing, but do they meet enterprise security standards?
"There are four critical questions every enterprise and IT administrator should ask when considering file sharing services," says Adam Gordon, author and CISO/CTO at New Horizons Computer Learning Center of South Florida. These include: Where will the service store and share files? Who will view the files? How will the service protect the files? And, what types of files will the service permit in the storage system? If a service provider doesn't respond satisfactorily, CISOs should consider their options.
