Over 300,000 teams—spanning a wide variety of sizes, industries, and locations—use Dropbox Business to collaborate. But with so many different kinds of teams, a cookie cutter approach to management, security, and deployment doesn’t work. Today, as part of our AdminX initiative, we’re introducing new tools to simplify data security for Dropbox Business teams across all types of organizations.
Last fall, we introduced Dropbox Showcase, a new way to present and track your work, all in one place. We originally launched this feature to individuals on our Professional plan and Business users through our early access program. Today, we’re rolling it out to all Dropbox Business Advanced and Enterprise teams—and adding new functionality to help you more easily create, customize, and control your showcases.
Collaboration and knowledge sharing are pillars of higher education. Instead of working in silos detached from other educational spaces, universities can leverage technology to break down barriers. This creates opportunities to drive efficiency, productivity, and innovation in higher education and research. Today, we’ll show you how IT admins can leverage Dropbox Education to improve visibility, control, and security on their campuses.
Over 200,000 Dropbox Business customers rely on us to store their critical data. As teams increasingly work remotely and across devices, maintaining control over who has access to your company data becomes more important. So today, we’re announcing new tools as part of our AdminX initiative, which applies our user-first design approach to the admin experience. These tools provide you with stronger user controls and greater visibility into Dropbox usage.
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. Our new team folder feature, introduced into early access last summer, brought teams a solution to this problem: a central, secure place to store and share data. Today, we’re excited to make this feature available to all Dropbox Business and Enterprise teams.
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.
