“He comes from the same place as Bond, a place you say doesn’t exist… the shadows.”
– Skyfall

For today’s Movie Line Monday, Marketing Manager Tracy Wang, talks about why she considers herself shadow IT. Some employees use cloud apps to stay organized and do their job more efficiently since some apps are accessible on any device, from anywhere. On the other hand, these use cases often time scare IT departments due to cloud app security, compliance and/or DLP (data loss prevention) reasons.

Watch this episode to see how shadow IT is not a bad thing, and why IT should embrace shadow IT as an opportunity to partner with different lines of business to figure out each others’ needs to secure cloud app usage.
