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.
As a leading information technology research and advisory company, Gartner provides insight that helps IT and business leaders make informed decisions. Each year, Gartner’s Magic Quadrant evaluates vendors within a market segment based on their completeness of vision and ability to execute on that vision. Today, we’re proud to announce that Gartner has named Dropbox a Leader for the second consecutive year.
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.
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.
Last August, we announced the open beta for Dropbox Paper, a flexible workspace designed to help teams grow ideas together, from start to finish. To help admins protect company data while their teams collaborate and share docs, we extended core AdminX controls from Dropbox Business to Paper. Today, we’ll take a closer look at how these new tools give Dropbox Business customers more visibility and control over the way company info is accessed and shared in Paper.
As more and more teams bring Dropbox into their businesses, admins have been working to keep pace with rapid user adoption. The ongoing challenge? Balancing a team’s need to share and collaborate with the need to maintain security, control, and visibility. Recently, we launched our AdminX initiative to help strike that balance by applying a “user-first” design approach to admin tools. Today, we’re introducing enhancements to our AdminX tools, Dropbox Paper beta, and global infrastructure to give admins even more power to protect your company’s data without sacrificing productivity.
