Whether it’s attached to emails, stored on servers, or backed up on hard drives, the information your team needs could be anywhere. The obvious solution—just put everything in one place—isn’t as simple as it seems. After all, you can enable users to share info with others, but not at the cost of data safety.

Fast, efficient sync technology is one of the many reasons people choose Dropbox. And leading industry analyst IDC agrees: their independent “EFSS Evaluation Guide” names Dropbox sync performance as best-in-class.
