Online Survey Shows More Than Half Of Employees BYOA Anyways
In a recent Trackvia survey, more than half of 1,000 employees and 250 IT Workers admit to using "rogue apps", or apps not approved or provided by the enterprise. Apps such as Dropbox, Google Drive, and JoinMe can be the source of intellectual property leaks and unauthorized distribution according to a separate survey on senior IT professionals by Interlinks Holdings and Gigaom Research. But the fault may not be solely on employees. Employees claim "rogue apps" are used to compensate for approved applications that are out of date, difficult and complicated.
