Based on data from 5.9 million users representing all industries, SkyHigh listed the ten most used applications, and color coded them by degree of enterprise readiness.

Blue: Low Risk, Enterprise Ready
Grey: Medium Risk
Orange: High Risk

Only 1 of the top 10 file sharing services, Box, is considered enterprise-ready. 60 percent are high risk.

Skyhigh's risk assessment is based on Skyhigh CloudTrust Program, which assigns a risk rating based on a weighted assessment of more than 50 attributes across data risk, user/device risk, service risk, business risk, and legal risk

Those highlighted in blue, like Box, are considered Enterprise ready, meaning they have the strictest standards of security in place. This includes data protection, identity verification, service security, business practices, and legal protection.
