CRN skeptical of SkyDrive

April 1, 2008 at 3:13 am Leave a comment

Channel Web ran a story today that went over the recently unveiled SkyDrive from Microsoft. The article was a little harsh, highlighting the problems SkyDrive would present for any enterprise or small business, and including this relatively damning quote:

“After extensive review, not only does the CRN Test Center not recommend SkyDrive, but it would also be advisable for VARs to suggest their clients block its access through content filters.”

Tough, but based on the security/compliance questions, perhaps accurate. This sort of logic flies in the face of the “everything will be free” movement, but might identify a real need in the market…
