Shadow IT is the unsanctioned adoption of cloud applications by users and business lines without the consent of IT organizations.
Shadow IT can create security and compliance risks for enterprise because they lose the visibility and control of data leaving their organization. Users often provision their own cloud applications with weak and duplicate password and bypass company policies for the sharing of sensitive and regulated data. Shadow IT has become an increasing problem as more employees are mobile and access cloud services outside the company network using personal devices.
