The workplace is quickly changing. Most employees today are using their smartphones and tablets at work. Employees are also putting data into cloud spaces such as Box, Dropbox, iCloud, Google Drive, and SugarSync.

IT professionals agree that this can be dangerous for an organization’s data. But how can you stop your employees from using tools so easily accessible to them?

Maybe the best solution is to be proactive. Creating a private cloud for employees to put their information on can save employees from searching for other places to store data. Private cloud services will still give employees the freedom to share data across all of their devices; however it will ensure that your company retains control over sensitive data.

Do you believe that a private cloud is ripe and a good choice for sharing in the cloud? Or is the private cloud hype?
