New components of Dropbox Enterprise include domain management, Collaboration Insights, premium integration and development support, deployment support, and user training, with an assigned success manager.
Rob Baesman, head of product for Dropbox Business, announced the news at the Dropbox Open customer conference in San Francisco.
Perhaps the most exciting part of the new Dropbox Enterprise is the Collaboration Insights feature. It can generate reports that show external sharing with various kinds of people, such as suppliers, partners, and customers.
“Qualified” enterprise customers can purchase Dropbox Enterprise starting today, Baesman said.
The company today announced that it had more than 150,000 business customers.
Dropbox today made a few other announcements demonstrating its commitment to getting more extensive usage inside of enterprises.
There are now several new channel partners. Two companies that sell data center infrastructure — the newly formed Hewlett Packard Enterprise and Dell — are onboard, alongside Synnex, Ingram Micro, SoftBank, Telmex, and London-based telecommunications company Vodafone, Dropbox chief operations officer Dennis Woodside said at the conference.
Dropbox is also fleshing out its Dropbox Partner Network. Going forward the company will offer more training and support to partners, and it will invest in co-marketing and promoting partner applications in an app showcase, Woodside said.
And Dropbox is also moving over a major enterprise hurdle: HIPAA compliance. That’s something competitor Box added back in 2013.
