Overview

Shadow IT has become a household (or office-hold) name in today’s modern businesses, but what a lot of organizations don’t realize is the number of risks involved in ignoring those rogue technology installations. According to one study, the average large enterprise uses around 1,220 individual cloud services, which is more than 13 times the 91 services recognized by IT departments. Not only does Shadow IT go directly against IT departments, it can also create security vulnerabilities and unnecessary costs. Employees typically engage in Shadow IT because they think it will save their company, and IT department, time and money. In reality, going around IT just bypasses the critical management, integration, and security and compliancerelated safeguards that they support.
