We’re committed to helping our customers use Dropbox as part of their established security workflows. So today, we’re excited to announce the general availability of Enterprise Mobility Management (EMM) support on iOS and Android. And to help customers integrate Dropbox Enterprise with their existing EMM solutions, we’re welcoming four new partners: IBM MaaS360, Inventit, SoftBank Business Concierge, and Matrix42.
We’re proud that Dropbox is now deployed in over 4,000 educational institutions worldwide, including a few of our newest education customers: Teachers College of Columbia University, Chapman University, Carleton College, Edinboro University, and The Stephen J.R. Smith School of Business at Queen’s University.
Greetings from Dropbox Open London, where we’re hosting some of our global and regional customers and partners. For our customers here, we hope this will be a day full of new ideas, inspiring stories, and high-level networking. For us, it’s a time to reflect on how far we have come, from a personal tool for our co-founder, Drew Houston, to a service adopted by CIOs of major companies from News Corp and Condé Nast Britain to Hyatt and National Geographic.
These days, modern companies and truly productive teams often span offices, regions, and operating systems. Sadly, the tools that many rely on to access their data—traditional ones like corporate file servers (shared network drives) and newer, browser-based solutions—aren’t suited to the way modern teams work.
Ask anyone in IT—deployment and onboarding are a lot of work. And the larger your company is, the more complex and time-consuming the task of getting people up and running is. Add to that the ever-present need to protect company data, and you can use all the help you can get. So, today we’re making it easier for IT admins to manage Dropbox Business and Enterprise deployments with a new set of domain management tools.
Our European users and customers are incredibly important to Dropbox. Approximately 75% of Dropbox users are outside of the US and a significant portion of that usage is by European businesses and consumers. Three years ago we opened our European headquarters in Dublin, followed by offices in London and Paris in 2015. In order to get even closer to business customers in Europe, we are now announcing the opening of an office in Amsterdam to serve the Benelux region.
