With the significant increase of data sprawl brought on by the mobile workforce and cloud services (Office365, Box, Salesforce, Dropbox, and so on), enforcing data governance policies has become increasingly more complicated.
Certainly, mobile and cloud support has added to the business burden with the need for locating, tracking, monitoring, securing, and properly preserving sensitive data. Furthermore, data breaches cost organizations millions of dollars in fines, data loss, investigations, and customer backlash.
