Enterprise employees choose adult content, app downloads over security

Business employees are regularly ignoring IT policies in order to surf adult content and download both suspicious attachments and unauthorized apps, a new report claims.

According to a new survey conducted by Blue Coat and Vanson Bourne, the rising number of cyberattacks levied against businesses is on the rise -- but employees are yet to tailor their behavior at work accordingly.

The majority of 1580 survey respondents worldwide said they understood the cybersecurity risks linked to downloading email attachments from unknown senders, viewing adult content, using social media and downloading unapproved applications, but this has not curbed their risk-taking when using corporate systems and mobile gadgets.
