Controls and Permissions
Dropbox includes different tools for sharing controls and permissions. Expiration dates, link passwords, and access control are just some of the measures used to safeguard sensitive company data shared across this cloud storage solution.
Lost Device Protection
Pause Dropbox syncs and unlink accounts from a misplaced device through lost device protection features. Lost and stolen devices holding a company Dropbox for Business folder can also have them cleared using the remote wipe feature.
Dropbox works with single sign-on authentication provided you have an existing identity provider. You can also add two-step verification, prompting users to add six-digit security codes when connecting through a new account or a new device.
Data migration and account transfer
Account transfers can be done to seamlessly migrate company files to other team members. This is especially significant when employees leave and admins manage their accounts by either suspending or deleting them and transferring their contents to other team members.
