Is Dropbox secure?

We’ve previously covered the risk of Dropbox in the workplace. The risk is based upon which Dropbox plan you are utilizing.

Due to rising data loss concerns and recent news of ransomware traveling via emailed Dropbox links, many Ontech customers are opting to prohibit Dropbox altogether in the workplace and move to OnCloud as an alternative.

What would this look like, should your business take this path?

Security: Dropbox users would move to OnCloud File Sync, a business-grade, 100% secure alternative that supports the growing BYOD (bring your own device) trend by allowing employees to access files from any device. OnCloud is a solution that is compliant with your business’s security needs.

Flexibility: Aside from security, OnCloud provides users with better flexibility to collaborate with team members and clients.

What happens to Dropbox files and users’ experience with Dropbox?

  • No one within the network will be able to go to dropbox.com – on the private network and guest.
  • PCs will be prohibited from running the program.
  • Emails that contain Dropbox links won’t be delivered.
  • Existing Dropbox users can no longer share links from within the network.

IMPORTANT: If users have Dropbox already installed on their PC’s, they will NOT lose Dropbox folders or content. Uninstalling the program simply uninstalls he program, not the content.
