When it comes to sharing photos and storing recipes, Dropbox is simple to use. That’s why it’s so popular with consumers.

But as people grow accustomed to using Dropbox at home, millions of users have begun using it in the workplace. According to Osterman Research, Dropbox has found its way into 70% of companies.

Why is this a problem? Because, when it comes to business, Dropbox’s consumer roots show through.

It’s not right for business. In fact, Dropbox was listed among the top banned apps by Bloomberg BusinessWeek, due to the vulnerability of stored data.

Give your employees a better alternative. As a business owner, you need to provide file sync and share tools that enable similar functionality—but, without the business risk. When it comes to getting employees to drop their Dropbox, user experience is key.

Skybox Innovations delivers ShareSync with both the end user and business owner in mind. For employees, ShareSync is easy to use. ShareSync has an intuitive interface that makes it easy for employees to store and share files regardless of device or location.

For business owners, ShareSync provides the security features and IT control that Dropbox lacks. Data is encrypted at-rest and in-transit. And each account is protected by a unique encryption key. Business owners can control how data is shared externally and can remotely wipe company data from mobile devices.
