Right, I don't think we should take this as "all organizations should use Dropbox because their employees will anyway." There are definitely alternatives out there that can be just as accessible while having much better policies around data security and ownership.

The first sentence of this is interesting Gă÷ 51% would break such rules, but how many companies even have them at this point? As you reported, many financial firms are well into the BYOD era.

I don't want to provide a commercial announcement here, but there are "dropbox" like solutions that provide similar person to person customer experiences for passing files. Such as IBM QuickFile.

Companies that continue to ban personal devices at work are foolish. Employees will do whatever it takes to make their lives easier and complete their job faster. And if that means sending a company file to Dropbox or Google Drive and accessing it on their mobile device, so be it. At least with a strong BYOD policy, a financial firm can govern what apps people use, what data is accessed on the devices, and ultimately, secure data access at the device level.

When you use dropbox you sign over the rights of your companies data to another organaisation who can then do as they please with it. Just like Experian, they could sell it to Vietnamese criminals who are posing as investigators. Organisations need a more secure - corporate alternative to dropbox to enable their workers the same flexibility.

Devices accessing the network,whether corporate or employee owned, should be managed so only corporate approved apps can edit corporate data.

This survey just reinforces why banks need good, practical BYOd policies in place, if they don't already.
