A retail employee uploads 4.5 GB of files to Kanbox before the employee leaves the organization
Kanbox, a high risk file sharing service, may not be on the radar of security teams.
Rajiv Gupta, CEO of Skyhigh Networks explains in this case an employee was sending out information to an unknown file sharing service that was not blocked by the company.

In this instance, security teams may have noticed the significant size of data being transmitted from the firm.
