Dropbox’s buffed-up business offering is better, but far from best
Dropbox’s buffed-up business offering is better, but far from best: Last year Dropbox faced stiff competition in the business file-sharing space from a slew of other vendors. The company pumped up its business-level offering, adding a smattering of controls and auditing functions, but it still fell short against its competition in a few ways.
Now Dropbox has unleashed a new wave of enterprise features and strengthened the case for itself as a business solution compared to products like Box.
The good: Some of the new features are items that should have been available in any business-level version of Dropbox all along — remote wipe, for instance, which allows the Dropbox folder on a given device to be deleted automatically the next time it attempts to make a connection. Another good one is account transfer, which allows a business-level Dropbox account to be switched between team members, thus allowing a Dropbox account to be moved between a succession of people as folks enter or leave a company. Auditing logs can also be shared with various team members now.
