Download BitSight Insight: How BitTorrent File Sharing Impacts Vendor Risk and Security BenchmarkingYou better watch out
You better not cry
You better not pout
I'm telling you why
File Sharing is coming to town
 
BitSight sees your vendors from the outside
They know what files they did take
BitSight knows if they've been sharing apps
So tell them to be good for goodness sake!
 
 
Oh! you better watch out!
You better not cry.
You better not pout, I'm telling you why
File Sharing is coming to town
Twenty-three percent of orgs are sharing
The employees think it’s grand
But across all ten industries
The risks it brings are glaring
 
With 43 percent malware on apps
Such as Microsoft and Adobe
You really need to close that gap
Throughout your vendor community
 
You better watch out
You better not cry
You better not pout
I'm telling you why
File Sharing is coming to town
 
Just in time for the holidays, BitSight has introduced a new report: “Peer-To-Peer Peril: How Peer-To-Peer File Sharing Impacts Vendor Risk and Security Benchmarking.” BitSight also announced a new file sharing analysis module, available immediately, for the BitSight Security Ratings Platform that assesses the risk posed by P2P file sharing usage among vendors in a supply chain.
