With the cost of materials rising to their highest price in more than 5 years, and 70% of construction firms struggling to find qualified workers, construction companies are looking for news ways to adapt to changing times. As we move into 2018, technology is poised to become more and more integral to the industry as it offers new tools for running an efficient team.
Productivity is a holy grail of the workplace. But when your files are scattered across devices, and team members are working from various locations, being productive can feel like an impossible feat. If you’re spending more time thinking about work than actually doing it, your workflows probably need some help.
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.

Keeping your information safe and secure is a top priority for us at Dropbox, and we think it’s important to keep IT teams informed about how we do that. Online security is a moving target that’s always evolving as threats change, but there are several fundamental ways that we keep our infrastructure and customer data secure.
