Dropbox, the file-sharing platform, has announced a series of partnerships and cross-platform integrations that will give Dropbox Business customers access to more advanced security features.
Dropbox is partnering with Google Cloud Identity (GCI) and expanding its current partnerships with BetterCloud, Coronet, and Proofpoint.
Enterprise storage: file sync and share?
“Businesses today are using multiple tools to protect their content, and we’re making it easier for them to securely deploy Dropbox alongside their existing security standards,” said Quentin Clark, SVP of Engineering, Product and Design at Dropbox. “As employees work remotely and teams change, businesses will have the peace of mind of knowing their content will always be secure with Dropbox.”
GCI was only announced earlier last month, and Dropbox’s partnership is one of the platform’s first major endeavours.

As part of the partnership, CGI will be used to manage access to Dropbox Business accounts as employees join, move, or leave the organisation. With single sign-on (SSO), users can access their Dropbox accounts using Google login credentials, while staying protected through multi-factor authentication, including the Google Authenticator app and Titan Security Keys.
The other integrations are expected to be available to Dropbox Business customers by the end of 2018.
