Dropbox Business is a secure file sharing and collaboration platform.
Dropbox allows synchronisation of files between devices and the cloud through managed Team areas with granular access.
We are often asked why Microsoft Office 365 users should consider using Dropbox when One Drive (a similar tool) is bundled in with most Microsoft 365 subscriptions. In our experience Dropbox is far more reliable and user friendly than competitive tools like One Drive which are prone to regular sync issues such as conflicts.
Using Dropbox Paper, users can collaborate on files. Multiple users can work on the same file and see changes made by colleagues in real time.
With Dropbox Smart Sync you can navigate Dropbox content on your devices without the files taking up space until they are accessed. Files are downloaded on access, or you can select folders to always sync offline to the device allowing offline file access if you regularly work on the move with no internet connection. When your device is back on-line, your changes will be synced up to the cloud and other devices.

Data stored in the cloud can often be accessed easily, from anywhere in the world. Whist all cloud storage providers vary, they often offer a local desktop client which allows you to access your files from your computers document folder. They often also offer the ability to access frequently used files without the need for an internet connection.
The cost of cloud storage does vary, as with most things, it is important to focus on the value that us provided rather than price. As most cloud storage is fully scalable, you are often able to change the number of users based on your changing requirements. This is particularly beneficial to start-ups and smaller businesses as it allows for flexibility as you grow.
Many businesses are reluctant to trust cloud storage solutions out of fear over data security. Labyrinth ensure that all cloud storage solutions that we recommend have robust data security controls in place and comply with all local data protection legislation. All solutions that Labyrinth recommend ensure that data in encrypted both is transit and at rest. Data will also typically be replicated in multiple locations to ensure business continuity.
