Quest offers best practices on identity and access management to prevent exposure of business-critical data due to poor employee information-sharing habits
MAIDENHEAD, UK, Dec. 12, 2012 — /BackupReview.info/ — Use of consumer devices in the workplace, geographically dispersed teams, and the prevalence of social networks all are having a dramatic impact on the way people share corporate information, which is raising serious concerns around data security. Quest Software, now a part of Dell, recently commissioned Vanson Bourne to survey CIOs in the UK, France and Germany, and found that current information security policies are failing to protect business-critical information, as identity and access management processes have not been updated to meet changing employee needs, leaving businesses exposed to risk.
In addition, the research found that 65% of European CIOs believe that employees share corporate data in the fastest and easiest way, regularly bypassing IT policy, and feeling little accountability for protecting critical company information. 69% also agree that organisations and employees should take greater responsibility for how corporate data is shared, stored and managed. Due to the significant security, financial and reputational risks of losing information, identity and access management is a priority for more than three quarters of European organisations in 2013 (76%). Quest offers best practice advice to address the following security issues:

“As the guardians of information, CIOs need to rethink how they deliver IT services and tools to employees, in order to offer a better service which meets both the end-user and business requirements, whilst not introducing unnecessary risk. IT leaders also need to better educate employees about the risks of sharing corporate data on vulnerable channel.”
