The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) goes into effect on May 25, 2018 and organizations (large and small) are currently preparing for the new directive. As an evolution of the current data protection legal framework, the GDPR will also apply with extraterritorial effect to organizations based outside the EU that offer goods and services to, or monitor individuals in, the EU.
When data flows, so does innovation. For admins in charge of guarding company data, though, the challenges can be daunting. As security threats become more fluid and harder to identify, risks can come from intentional attacks or accidents caused by user confusion. To guard against those risks, admins now need control over the flow of data itself. That’s why Dropbox created a new network control feature that allows admins to control access to the corporate network while their teams collaborate and share data.
There was a time when the idea of one person having multiple computers was a far-off theoretical concept. But today, computers, which now include mobile devices like phones and tablets, are dramatically more common. Having multiple devices—sometimes more than one of each type—is often the norm, which presents a unique challenge. Since IT needs at least some control over every device storing business data, limiting the number of devices with access is essential. Today, we’ll take a look at how we’re answering this need with our recently introduced device approvals feature.
