...while enterprise employees may use Dropbox, the enterprise itself demands a more robust feature set, which Dropbox [for Business] does not currently provide.

eFolder, a leading supplier of cloud data protection and file sync solutions for the IT channel, has publicized a response to the recent Dropbox for Business software update. In a contributed post published on Wired Innovation Insights, Ted Hulsy, vice president of marketing at eFolder, asserts that “…while enterprise employees may use Dropbox, the enterprise itself demands a more robust feature set, which Dropbox [for Business] does not currently provide.”

eFolder’s public response is timely, as more businesses are adopting solutions similar to Dropbox, such as Google Drive, Microsoft SkyDrive, and SugarSync, some of which lack security and features that ensure business data privacy. Hulsy is available to discuss the shortcomings of Dropbox for Business and the broader implications of consumer-grade file sync solutions for businesses and IT solution providers.

According to Hulsy, features that Dropbox for Business still lacks, include:

  •     Ability to host the storage solution on-site, on a local server and/or a remote server
  •     Complete file sharing policies for internal and external parties
  •     Cloud enablement of a local file server
  •     IT management tool integration
  •     Bandwidth throttling and file type restriction
