As a leading information technology research and advisory company, Gartner provides insight that helps IT and business leaders make informed decisions. Each year, Gartner’s Magic Quadrant evaluates vendors within a market segment based on their completeness of vision and ability to execute on that vision. Today, we’re proud to announce that Gartner has named Dropbox a Leader for the second consecutive year.

According to Gartner’s 2017 “Magic Quadrant for Content Collaboration Platforms” report, “Leaders provide mature offerings that meet market demand. They have demonstrated the vision necessary to sustain their market positions as requirements evolve. The hallmark of Leaders is that they focus and invest in their offerings to lead the market and affect its overall direction. Leaders can be the vendors to watch as you try to understand how new offerings might evolve. Leaders typically possess a significant, satisfied customer base, and they enjoy high visibility in the market. Their size and maturity enable them to remain viable under changing market conditions. Leaders typically respond to a wide market audience by supporting broad market requirements. However, they may fail to meet the specific needs of vertical markets or other more specialized segments.”

We believe our company strengths include:

  • Fast, reliable desktop sync client, powered by optimized LAN sync, delta sync, streaming sync, and Smart Sync.
  • Dedicated storage infrastructure, including our 10 regional accelerators and 14 points of presence across the US, Europe, and Asia.
  • Large developer and partner ecosystem, including thousands of app integrations built on top of our content platform.
  • Simplicity and ease of use, resulting in positive ratings from IT administrators, users, and team.

“Being recognized as a leading content collaboration platform is a true testament to the work we’re doing to improve the way modern teams work together.” — Rob Baesman, Senior Director of Product Management at Dropbox.

Today, more than 500 million registered users and more than 200,000 Dropbox Business customers rely on our platform to capture ideas, get feedback, and iterate together. By connecting the creation, feedback, organization, and distribution steps that happen across different tools today, Dropbox is reducing the frustration and miscommunication that can slow teams down.

As we continue our mission to provide a unified home for content and the collaboration around it, we’re honored to be recognized as a Leader in Gartner’s 2017 “Magic Quadrant for Content Collaboration Platforms” report. To learn more, download a copy of the Gartner report.
