Netskope Cloud Report: Data loss prevention policy violations in collaboration services like Slack or HipChat are rising.

Just Slack and HipChat are accounting for almost 10 per cent of all violations in the quarter. This is mostly because these two services have ‘skyrocketed in popularity’ when it comes to sharing and downloading data. Webmail is still the leader, though, with 43 per cent of violations. Cloud storage follows with 30 per cent, while other cloud categories combined take the third spot with 16 per cent.
