Osterman Research/Axway Survey Finds 82 Percent of Employees Turn to Personal Email Accounts to Send Large Files
Axway announced survey results revealing strong discrepancies between employees and their IT department on topics related to enterprise file transfer. Conducted with Osterman Research, the survey is entitled Problems with File Transfers and What Organizations Should Do to Resolve Them.
The survey revealed that 82 percent of employees use their personal email accounts to send large work-related files when an email attachment exceeds the size limit imposed by IT. However, IT professionals report this as their least-preferred method for file transfer. Physical media is also used by 80 percent of employees, which is also discouraged by IT.
