Should you put it in a box or lock it in a vault?


Dropbox has quickly spread across the business community as an easy way to share files.  As of November 2012, Dropbox™ claimes over 100 million users. The business problem this creates is the lack of security and reliability for sensitive company information.


Reliable service?

On Tuesday, August 21st 2012 Dropbox™ users were unable to access their files for up to nine hours.

User information secure?

In July of 2012 Dropbox™ was subjected to a spam attack that stemmed from a theft of an employee password that gave the thief access to many Dropbox™ users accounts and passwords. In fact, many user accounts were logged in to and data files were accessed.
