Today’s organisations hinge on the rapid transfer of information to meet business requirements and customer needs. With the growth of cloud services and increased pace of application development, more business files are being sent and received by cloud storage infrastructure. This brings immense opportunity to businesses regarding the storage and retrieval of any amount of data, any time, from anywhere on the web, including log files, PDFs, media files, and images. Many applications integrate file and object storage into their architecture for file record requirements because of the ease of use, scalability, and cost.
Yet, while the storage infrastructure is secure, human error can impact the integrity of the file storage systems. Furthermore, the files themselves can pose a threat to the organisation if they contain malicious content from unknown senders. This can lead to serious breaches which inflict harm to downstream workflows and business processes throughout your organisation or customer and partner portals, ultimately eroding their trust.
Check out the infographic below to better understand how files can impact application and business processes as well as compliance.
