1. A method for sharing between user devices using direct transient data sharing (“DTDS”), comprising:
receiving data at a server from a first device, wherein a source application on the first device shares the data with a first agent at the first device using DTDS, and wherein the first agent shares the data with the sever;
identifying, at the server, a second device associated with a same user as the first device;
determining that security requirements are met by at least one of the first device and second device; and
in an instance where the security requirements are met, sending the data to a destination application of the second device,
wherein determining the security requirements are met includes determining risk scores for the first device and second device based on a management status of the source application and destination application, wherein the risk scores are compared against a threshold to determine whether to send the data to the destination application.
