You know the feeling when you need something when you’re away from your home or office. Do you have time to go back for it? Usually, not.
Large IT organizations know about cloud computing. Companies like Terremark provide large-scale cloud solutions that fit big needs and big budgets. Whether it’s for backup, security, collaboration or any other use, cloud computing can save time and money with less downtime and less equipment.
But a smaller business doesn’t need that sort of thing. . .or does it? How much is this going to cost? How complicated is it to use?
Enter Dropbox. A leader in personal cloud-based storage solutions, Dropbox is a simple system that anyone can use to store documents, pictures, presentations, and anything else you need safely and easily accessible from anywhere, no just on your hard drive. Instead of shared folders on the server that IT needs to grant access to for everyone who needs it, shared folders in the cloud are set up and controlled by the owner and shared with whoever needs it. Instead of sending an email attachment that might be sent to the spam folder or burned up by the firewall–or an unsecured USB device–users go to a central place to find what they need, when they need it.
Dropbox is especially useful for companies with people who are virtual, sometimes all over the world. Nobody has to be “in the office” in order to get what they need. It’s readily available and simple to use.
Take a look:
And what about someone who’s away? There’s an app available to access work documents and folders anywhere, easily and securely, just like you’re sitting in the office.
Security controls include passwords, permission-based folder access, and additional admin privileges for your IT department, so it’s not an open file cabinet, either.
