Enterprise policies and consistent enforcement can reduce the risk
I agree that "there's a need for easy ways to share data effectively in the cloud. The silver lining to all of this is that enterprise policies and consistent enforcement can reduce the risk of collaboration and sharing in the cloud."

Gartner recently reviewed interesting data security approaches for existing cloud applications that can help organizations that are concerned about data security and compliance with regulations.

The first report is from June 2015 with the title "Simplify Operations and Compliance in the Cloud by Protecting Sensitive Data." Another Gartner report concluded that "Cloud Data Protection Gateways" provides a "High Benefit Rating" and "offer a way to secure sensitive enterprise data and files stored in SaaS applications".

Cloud Gateways sits between users and cloud applications, replacing sensitive data with tokens or encrypted values before it is sent to the cloud. After the data has been processed and returned by the cloud service (i.e. Salesforce, Box, Gmail, Office365, Xactly, etc), the Cloud Gateway "unlocks" the data, making it viewable by approved business users. No one outside your organization can access your data on its journey to and from the cloud.
