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.
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.
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.
If employees within your workplace are still using consumer-grade versions of Dropbox, they are putting your network at risk. If you are interested in finding out more about this 100% secure file sharing alternative, contact us online or give us a call at (262) 522-8560.
