2.7.3 iCloud Drive


iCloud Drive is Apple's storage solution for applications on both OS X and iOS to use the same files that are resident in Apple's cloud storage. The iCloud Drive folder is available much like Dropbox or the Microsoft or Google solutions.

One of the concerns in public cloud storage is that proprietary data may be inappropriately stored in an end user's personal repository. Organizations that need specific controls on information should ensure that this service is turned off or the user knows what information must be stored on services that are approved for storage

NOTE: Nessus has not performed this check. Please review the benchmark to ensure target compliance.


If cloud storage is not allowed in your organization in System Preferences: iCloud uncheck iCloud Drive
