San Mateo, California (PRWEB) December 03, 2014
Sookasa, which provides file-level encryption in Dropbox, announced an integration with Dropbox for Business that enables customers to address their encryption needs seamlessly between the two services. Dropbox for Business provides teams with the power, security, and performance of Dropbox, along with robust admin capabilities that give IT visibility and control over company data. Sookasa now becomes one of several leading service providers building on the new Dropbox for Business API in order to offer increased enterprise-grade functionality within Dropbox for Business.
“By combining seamless encryption technology with Dropbox’s existing encryption and superior user experience, Sookasa provides additional security that empowers businesses with the convenience and mobility of sharing files on the cloud,” said Asaf Cidon, Sookasa CEO and co-founder. “Sookasa’s partnership with Dropbox for Business will help advance the democratization of security and compliance even further.”
The Dropbox for Business API enables developers to build a wide range of integrations that further support critical business needs for the companies that run on Dropbox for Business. These integrations extend the power of the Dropbox Platform by addressing new areas including security information & event management (SIEM), data loss prevention (DLP), eDiscovery, digital rights management (DRM), and data migration.
Through this new integration, Sookasa now helps protect sensitive data, such as PHI and PII, stored in Dropbox for Business accounts, providing enterprise-class encryption, auditing and control, and easy data management. Companies will be able to streamline their operations around sensitive corporate data, and manage it all within Sookasa’s systems.
Several Dropbox for Business customers, like KIPP Public Schools, are already using Sookasa. “The combination of Dropbox for Business and Sookasa allows us to take advantage of the unlimited space provided by Dropbox and the HIPAA compliance provided by Sookasa,” said Son Han, Director of Accounting and Compliance at KIPP Houston Public Schools. “We have employees of varying ranges of technical expertise, so we wanted a HIPAA compliant tool that anyone could use. Sookasa and Dropbox for Business deliver, making KIPP more efficient.”
“Dropbox for Business is all about simplifying the way people and companies work, and a big part of that is enabling integrations with the services our customers already use to meet their various business needs, like Sookasa,” said George O’Brien, product manager, Dropbox for Business. “We’re excited to work with Sookasa to provide businesses, particularly those that deal with highly sensitive content, a joint solution and seamless experience between the two services.”
