In 2019, Slack reached the 12 million daily user mark
, which is likely even higher today as the remote workforce has surged, making the tool a foundational part of corporate and enterprise environments. When your teams, both internal and external, are working in Slack to send files, share sensitive information, and cross communicate between groups, it is incredibly difficult to track what information is being distributed. On top of that, it is nearly impossible to tell which information is sensitive and should be controlled. The characteristics that make Slack easy to use and collaborate with also make it easy to leak information or download potentially risky files.
