Enterprise security has been compromised to the maximum in the current year with many well-known high profile firms, institutions and government bodies being the target for accidental data security breaches; thus making them vulnerable to the hands of the hackers.

Cloud apps like Office 365, Dropbox, G Suite or Zoho have been adopted by firms and definitely caused an increase in their work and business productivity. Team collaborations have improved due to data sharing features in cloud apps. But in addition, what lies ahead is the data leak scenarios and those must be addressed to at first. To curb data leak incidences, firms need to be cautious about their security for google drive and how their confidential data is being used and shared by its employees.

Adopting data security measures like the DLP solutions, which acts as a security barrier, decreases the chances of data leaks.
