Are you concerned about the risks your company may be taking sharing files outside the firewall? You’re not alone.

While there are tremendous productivity benefits to using cloud-based file-sharing applications, there are also considerable risks, especially when confidential or proprietary information is involved. Look no further than the DropBox data breach last year, when an unconfirmed number of accounts were compromised.

Now you can assess your vulnerability and see how well your company is controlling and protecting sensitive information. Intralinks has created a simple Content-Sharing Risk Calculator that will calculate your exposure and provide an explanation of what it means for you and your company. It takes a few minutes to complete and we’re offering a free iPad Mini to the 100th person to do the survey.
