Dropbox for Business to get mobile management boost
Security remains a big concern for businesses considering cloud storage, but Dropbox hopes to further calm their fears by integrating its service with enterprise mobile management products.
Dropbox for Business users will get the new EMM capability via upcoming applications from partners including AirWatch and MobileIron, resulting in safer mobile device access, Dropbox said Tuesday.
EMM will be enabled through the Dropbox for Business API, launched late last year to help companies integrate the cloud storage service into their core IT processes. Dropbox has since expanded the API access with features such as tools for managing groups and shared folders.
