On average, an enterprise now uses 1,427 cloud services. Seventy-one percent of these are enterprise services, with the remainder being consumer services. The average employee actively uses 36 cloud services, including nine collaboration services, six file sharing services, and five content sharing services (such as YouTube).
These figures come from an analysis of 30 million cloud users of the Skyhigh Networks Cloud Access Security Broker (CASB). It shows that sensitive data is increasingly being stored in cloud applications. Furthermore, a large amount of sensitive data is being uploaded to file sharing and collaboration services; and 18.1% of such files contain sensitive data.
