Gain visibility and control with Dropbox Business

Dropbox Business

Dropbox Business turns your team’s productivity tool of choice into the secure tool for getting work done. With end-to-end visibility and powerful yet flexible controls, you can protect your team’s most important work—inside or outside the office.


As the tool employees already rely on to get work done, you can expect widespread adoption when bringing Dropbox into your organization. The result: a unified home for team’s content and the collaboration around it.


Easy-to-use controls help you manage your team even as users and data usage grow—so your IT organization can spend time on what matters most.


The Dropbox platform helps you integrate Dropbox Business into your existing IT architecture and extend control with best-in-class enterprise solutions.
