55% of big businesses block Dropbox: employees evade if no convenient replacement is proposed

According to a GIGAOM study, 55% of businesses with 30k+ employees explicitly forbid SaaS-based file sharing (Dropbox, Box, Office365, Syncplicity, etc).

Do employees accept this rule and go back to using their company's awkward tools, or stop sharing files with their colleagues?
No: According to the same study, 90% of cloud application usage happens without the IT department knowing it.

Block Dropbox, and employees will use a lesser-known alternative. Which is probably even worse.

Conclusion: If you block Dropbox, at the same time you should provide an alternative that offers the same convenience.

CmisSync offers exactly that:
- Looks like Dropbox
- Feels like Dropbox- Syncs like Dropbox
- Connects only to your corporate server, and never to any third-party.
