Today we’re excited to announce that Dropbox was named as a Leader in Gartner’s 2016 “Magic Quadrant for Enterprise File Synchronization and Sharing (EFSS).”
Our domain management tools are now available to all Dropbox Business and Dropbox Enterprise customers. Hear what Michael Cook, IT admin for The Richards Group, has to say about these powerful admin features.
