Dropbox is a Web-based file hosting service that uses cloud computing to enable users to store and share files and folders with others across the Internet using file synchronization. There are both free and paid services, each with varying options. In comparison to similar services, Dropbox offers a relatively large number of user clients across a variety of desktop and mobile operating systems. DropBox alternatives for enterprise are: Box, Microsoft SharePoint, Office 365.
Face to face in the news:
2014 - Dropbox fulfilled all CIOs' wishes. Adrive is in panic
Dropbox has been offering the business version of its file storage and sharing service for some time. But CIOs were still unsatisfied with its enterprise-grade features and didn't allow employees to use it. On the other hand enterprise employees want to use Dropbox. That's why CIOs gave a try to Dropbox-substitutes like Box, Syncplicity, OneDrive Pro. But what employees want, it seems, is not something that provides a Dropbox-like experience; they want Dropbox. (BTW, this is told by Ilya Fushman, the head of Dropbox for Business). So, he says, I took the bull by the horns, gathered all CIOs and asked them: "What else do you want from us?". And they said: "Listen, Ilya, we want from you just three things: First - to remotely wipe accounts so that if a mobile device is stolen or lost, data could be deleted. Second - account transfer so that if someone left the company, the company’s files weren’t taken or lost. And third - audit log sharing so that companies can track where company data is being accessed."
Yesterday Dropbox introduced the new version of Dropbox for Business, which fulfills all these three wishes. "Genius? Yes" - Ilya says to himself. But we did not stop and implemented the ability to safely use corporate and private Dropbox accounts on one device. So employees will be also happy with this new version.
