Despite the efforts of IT to safeguard corporate data, the growth of BYOD and the proliferation of cloud services has caused data to "disassemble", so to speak, outside traditional network bounds. For example, 37% of European CIOs believe staff have procured cloud services without permission - that's a big threat to data security!

With 74% of CIOs lacking the strategic and financial board support they require, meeting the growing demands of users and the advances in technology, IT is struggling to keep a harness on data. Added to this, IT departments are facing a major challenge around compliance, with large financial penalties for data breaches. In the UK, the Information Commissioner's Office levied £2.6 million in data breach fines.

With the pace of change accelerating in IT, it is no wonder that IT teams are succumbing to IT-Pressure-Itis. If you want a solution for IT-Pressure-Itis, aka the IT Headache, Absolute Service from Absolute Software is an ITIL-certified ITSM solution that has been proven to successfully treat IT Headaches.
