Secure, organized, automated—Dropbox is one less thing to worry about

Hear that? Neither do we! The sound of silence is the sound of technology doing its job well. Dropbox works hard in the background to keep your work, team, and processes running smoothly. Here are a few of the things Dropbox can do for you.

The best tech tools are the ones you don’t have to think about. You already have plenty on your mind at work, things to create, plan, design, calculate, and revise—which is why digital security should be as simple as saving a file. Safeguarding confidential info or your company’s intellectual property doesn’t take extra steps with Dropbox. It’s digital security that just works—in the background and out of your way—so you can focus on the projects that matter to you.

Dropbox allows us to move 10 times faster. It’s really the brain of the organization.

Dropbox flexes with the way you work, no matter the file, the process, or the people involved. It’s a digital workspace where teams share ideas, gather feedback, and collaborate on projects. Or Dropbox can be the backbone of your tech stack—the brain of your organization. It’s an adaptive infrastructure that connects your team’s apps, devices, and content. And keeping all your important work secure is the heart of what we do.

Empower your teams with a tool they’ll actually use

Dropbox has over 700 million users worldwide. More than 600,000 teams use it for work. Your coworkers, collaborators, and clients know and trust Dropbox. So instead of spending time learning another new tool, they can focus on the work that really matters.

“Whether I’m talking to a client, a vendor, or a potential new hire, no one has ever asked me, ‘What’s Dropbox?’ That’s the kind of magical simplicity I dream of in a product.” —Theodore Ullrich, interaction design and electrical engineering partner at Tomorrow Lab

Dropbox deploys flawlessly across all your team’s devices. And it connects with the apps you already use. Best of all? You don’t need an IT degree to set up or manage a Dropbox team plan—it just works.

People know how to use Dropbox. It’s easy. It’s intuitive. There are no installation problems, no access problems. There are no problems in general. We don’t hear a thing about it. I wish all my deployments were that easy.

Share files and ideas freely—and securely

Dropbox makes it easy to work with colleagues, clients, or anyone else. All your team content is centralized, organized, and easily accessible. Sharing a file takes only a few clicks. Plus, your collaborators can review and comment on any file type directly in Dropbox. 

“By using the right technology and drastically reducing waiting time, we are able to save more lives. Dropbox has reduced the time it takes to split up search areas, report back results, and share search information by two-thirds—something we didn’t think was achievable.” —Erlend Aarsaether, consultant for search and rescue at Norwegian People’s Aid

Of course, a file sharing solution is only as effective as it is secure. And your Dropbox plan equips you with powerful tools to keep your IP out of the wrong hands. You can:

  • Quickly see who has viewed a shared file and when they viewed it
  • Set download permissions, custom passwords, and expiration dates for all shared links
  • Easily deliver large files to any recipient—even if they don’t have an account—with Dropbox Transfer

Save time and frustration—get organized automatically

Sixty-eight percent of workers lose at least 30 minutes a day navigating between apps. And that doesn’t include all the time spent searching for the right info within those apps. The more tools we work with, the more time we waste trying to find what we need.

Dropbox automated folders can name, sort, tag, and convert newly added files for you. And it’s easy to manage all your automated folder settings from a central dashboard.

Don’t worry—Dropbox has your back

When you save a file, we get to work. Your content is encrypted and automatically uploaded to the cloud. And it stays there until you move or delete it, even if your phone is lost or your laptop gets stolen. 

Life happens: Computers crash, hard drives fail, and files get deleted by accident. But you don’t have to stress about that—we’ve got you covered. Recover lost and deleted files or restore an earlier version with just a few clicks. Plus, you can rewind any file, folder, or your entire account back in time—up to 180 days. When you save a file in Dropbox, you’ll always know where to find it, even if something goes wrong.

The magic of Dropbox perhaps is the removal of the paranoia we had before when, if you lost your laptop, you would be deeply disadvantaged. And now if I drop that computer, if it smashes, if I lose it, then I can go buy a new one and be up and running in 30 minutes.
