Dropbox Targets Big Business

Big business means the need for bigger boxes.

EnterpriseRecognizing this, Dropbox has expanded its landmark service with an eye on large organizations. It launched Dropbox Enterprise earlier this week hoping to attract big business by stressing the same security and services of its cloud-based platform but geared toward organizations needing more space and more storage.

“With Dropbox Enterprise, IT can give employees the Dropbox they love while getting the advanced capabilities they need to effectively onboard and manage tens of thousands of users, protect company data, and get the most from their investment,” the company explained in a blog post.

That means three main services as Enterprise features scalable deployment tools, increased visibility and control plus enterprise-grade services and support.

As PC Mag reported, Dropbox is signing Business Associate Agreements with customers. That’s an important step as it helps companies meet Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) and Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health (HITECH) Act compliance obligations.

Yet, there are some flaws with the program as Infoworld noted administrators have the ability to see how many users have opted to keep accounts personal they will not be able to know which users, specifically, opted not to join Dropbox Enterprise. It could become tricky for those administrators to keep track of where company data is going and who is sending it where.
