Dropbox Business boosts security with Google Cloud Identity integration
The partnership means customers can use multi-factor authentication with Google Authenticator app and Titan Security Keys
Dropbox has unveiled a partnership with Google that will see the search giant's Cloud Identity Platform become integrated into its Dropbox Business product, allowing users to sign into the storage and collaboration solution using their existing Google login details.
This means Dropbox Business accounts can benefit from an extra layer of protection via multi-factor authentication, provided through the Google Authenticator app and Titan Security Keys.
The collaboration with Google is just one of the new partnerships Dropbox has formed with security firms to boost the protection of its customers and their data. It explained it's looking for new ways it can facilitate the changing needs of customers, such as mobile working and storing sensitive files and folders in the cloud.
Dropbox also revealed it has tied up with other partners with extra integrations for Dropbox Business uses including BetterCloud, Coronet, Proofpoint and SailPoint.
BetterCloud enables administrators to develop automated processes within an organisation, such as on and off boarding new staff and document management, while Coronet offers the opportunity to manage content sharing and keep on top of document security. Proofpoint tie-up with Dropbox adds data loss prevention to the collaboration platform and SailPoint gives admins data access rights for employee file and folders.
"Businesses today are using multiple tools to protect their content, and we're making it easier for them to securely deploy Dropbox alongside their existing security standards," said Quentin Clark, SVP of engineering, product and design at Dropbox.
"As employees work remotely and teams change, businesses will have the peace of mind of knowing their content will always be secure with Dropbox."
These new integrations will start rolling out to Google Business customers by the end of the year.
