Over the past year, we’ve seen people in 4 million businesses and 97% of the Fortune 500 use Dropbox to work better. From media conglomerates to mom-and-pop shops to household names like National Geographic and BCBG, our product has become a core part of managing organizations.
But as we got more excited about building more features for Dropbox for Business, we kept running into the same problem: just as people often work at home, they also want to have their personal files with them at the office. With only one Dropbox, users wound up putting their personal files in their Dropbox for Business. We needed to build a way to help people keep their stuff separate, but still make both sets available from everywhere.
Today, we’re excited to share the solution we’ve designed: connecting a personal Dropbox to your Dropbox for Business on all your devices. Each Dropbox will be properly labeled for personal or work, and come with its own password, contacts, settings, and files. It’ll be like having your house keys and your company’s key-card on one keychain and with you at all times.
And what this means for business is even more exciting. In addition to single sign-on, two-step verification, sharing controls, and the admin console, the new Dropbox for Business comes with a suite of new features:
Sharing audit logs bring increased visibility and control over sharing and access of company data by letting admins audit the data flow itself.
Remote wipe allows admins to delete a Dropbox folder from computers and mobile devices, making it perfect for company departures or device losses.
Account transfer lets admins transfer all the files from a de-provisioned user into another team member’s Dropbox, letting teams operate without skipping a beat.
With your new Dropbox for Business account, you can know exactly what’s happening to corporate data, take action if something goes wrong, and easily continue your business when employees move on. Most importantly, you can do all of this without putting your corporate data at risk.
Starting this month, we’ll be rolling the new features out to Dropbox for Business customers. Take them for a spin by signing up for a free trial!
