Dropbox has made significant changes to its Dropbox for Business service. The updates focus on administration, security and integration. It’s worth noting the changes mainly apply to Windows networks and users, but with many Mac users working in mixed environments, we thought this would be worth sharing.
Dropbox is introducing an enterprise installer that lets administrators automate the deployment of Dropbox for Business remotely to any Windows desktop machine.
The Dropbox for Business API has been extended with new capabilities for shared folders. Several industry-leading data migration and DLP providers, including Adallom, CloudLock, Elastica, Mover, Netskope and SkySync, have begun building integrations to help admins take advantage of this new functionality.
Dropbox for Business is also being integrated with Active Directory, the identity management service of choice for millions of companies. The new Active Directory connector is being released in beta to select customers.
