In fact, it’s not uncommon for application audits to reveal licenses can still attributed to former workers, and organisations will be paying for software packages that are no longer needed or used.

Data access through BYOD
With AN increasing range of workers exploiting their personal devices on company networks, it’s vital that their devices aren’t still able to access company information even once they’ve left. Applications like Dropbox prove helpful for storing information within the Cloud for anyplace access, however this…
