Today we released our quarterly Cloud Report – global as well as Europe, Middle East and Africa versions. In this quarter’s report, besides our usual cloud app usage numbers and cloud data loss prevention (DLP) stats, we focus on cloud threats and malware with a special emphasis on ransomware. As ransomware continues to haunt organizations of all sizes, Netskope Threat Research Labs have kept abreast of new forms, releasing research examples of strains like Zepto, cuteRansomware, and others.
Average cloud apps per enterprise increased from 935 last quarter to 977 this quarter. The Microsoft Office 365 suite continues its dominance in our top-used cloud apps list, with OneDrive for Business and Outlook.com taking the number 1 and 2 spots, respectively. Interestingly, collaboration and messaging app Slack debuted on our list at number 20, indicating the rising popularity and adoption at enterprises.
In terms of cloud DLP violations, Cloud Storage was the main app category for this, at 76.5 percent, followed by Webmail at 18.6 percent and Other at 4.9 percent.
We have more statistics in each section of the full report. Check out the full September 2016 Cloud Report for all of the stats and recommendations from Netskope.
