Email encryption provider, DataMotion, has released results of its second annual survey on corporate email and file transfer habits. Among the findings is a far-reaching communications disconnect between IT management and non-IT employees on security and compliance policies. Results also showed a disturbing percentage in IT management taking compliance risks. Additionally, the survey looked at such critical areas as the use of free consumer-type file transfer tools and corporate email on mobile devices. The survey polled more than 400 IT and business decision-makers, focusing on industries that deal with sensitive data and compliance regulations such as financial services, health care and government.
