Disadvantages of Dropbox for Business

Disadvantages of Dropbox for Business

When thinking of a cloud service for business, Dropbox is often the first one that comes to mind. The problem is that while Dropbox does encrypt your files, they still have access to the encryption keys, meaning that you’re not fully in control of your files.

  • Dropbox uses only in-transit and at-rest encryption
  • Dropbox has access to all passwords and encryption keys
  • Dropbox creates a risk of shadow-IT

In fact, in 2016, passwords and email addresses of approximately 68 million Dropbox users were leaked online. Yet, when it comes to storing and sharing the most confidential files in a secure manner, many organizations don't ensure that they have an encrypted, business-grade cloud solution available, and their employees keep using Dropbox to store and share files.

Why do Dropbox customers switch to Tresorit?

Why do Dropbox customers switch to Tresorit?

The Swiss content collaboration provider Tresorit protects your company data with zero-knowledge end-to-end encryption. Unlike Dropbox, everything gets encrypted on your device, nothing leaves unencrypted. The encryption keys are available only for you and your recipients, therefore nobody else can decrypt and read the files, not even Tresorit.

  • Zero knowledge - Only you and your recipients can access files
  • Stay compliant - Comply with regulations like HIPAA and the GDPR
  • Stay in control - Control user and device permissions centrally
  • Ransomware protection - Back up and recover lost files easily
  • Custom permissions - Centrally manage user access permissions
  • Data Residency Options - store your data in the EU, in the USA, Switzerland or other locations.
  • Eliminate overhead - No more server support issues or tape backup
  • Access remotely - Access from any device: iPad, iPhone or Android
  • Access files offline - Ensure 24/7 file access, online and offline
  • Secure collaboration - Collaborate with anyone securely

Tresorit offers a highly secure yet easy-to-use way to store, sync and share files in the cloud. Read Security Documentation

Will from Riot Studios uses Tresorit as a secure & convenient alternative to Dropbox

Unlike consumer-grade cloud providers like Dropbox, Tresorit uses a zero-knowledge, end-to-end encryption system enabling only Will and his team to access their files. Tresorit doesn’t even store passwords on its servers, meaning that even if the system were breached, there’s no way a hacker could decrypt the files.

Tresorit is essentially an ultra-secure version of Dropbox, using shareable client-side encryption which protects data during storage and access and across all devices.

Tech Advisor

Tresorit takes security and privacy very seriously, with end-to-end encryption as standard, zero-knowledge authentication, multiple copies of files kept on multiple servers for backups, 2-factor authentication security, and its servers based in the EU. It’s quite a compelling package if you want to be assured that no-one will be prying into your business.

It's Time to Replace Dropbox With Tresorit

While Dropbox does encrypt your files, they still have access to the encryption keys, meaning that you’re not fully in control of your files. Unlike Dropbox, Tresorit uses end-to-end encryption: nothing leaves your devices unencrypted and Tresorit does not have access to your encryption keys, making it physically impossible to access your files without your authorization.

Comply with GDPR, HIPAA, and other compliance requirements

Tresorit solves the problem of data protection in the cloud by encrypting all files right on your device, applying the Advanced Encryption Standard algorithm using 256-bit keys. Unlike with Dropbox, your files never get decrypted on Tresorit's servers, meaning that no one, not even Tresorit, can look into the content of your files. Even if a breach were to happen, your organization is exempt from the costly GDPR or HIPAA breach notification rules, as breached data is made indecipherable using encryption.

10 reasons why you should switch from file servers

Frank Bösenberg

"We were unable to afford the expenses and efforts of company servers and IT experts, who keep our security up-to-date. By switching to Tresorit our consultants and clients are now presented with the desired flexibility - without having to compromise their data security."

Frank Bösenberg, CEO of Eurogrant, a German consulting company, which supports universities and businesses procuring funding from EU research projects.

Easy Back-up, File Recovery, and Ransomware Protection

Moving to the cloud does not mean you have to give up on your existing file structure. Tresorit enables you to keep your files the way you like them when you upload them to the cloud. Uploading a backup only takes a few clicks. And in the event you lose your device, your data will still be accessible as Tresorit updates your files in real-time and automatically adds any edits you make to your online backup. Tresorit also allows you to restore files deleted accidentally or due to ransomware.

"What I most like about Tresorit is how easy to use it is: it simply doesn't get in your way. I can have multiple tresors, unlike with Dropbox, where I'm forced to stack everything I need to backup in the cloud under a single hierarchy."

Davide Molin, Founder of CodingShack, an IT consulting company providing professional development services to their clients.

Enhanced Mobility

Like Dropbox, Tresorit dismantles the mobility barriers of file servers, as it allows users to access files from any device, from anywhere; at home, on the move. Files can be accessed on the go from Tresorit's mobile app or via the Tresorit Web Access. Users can also download the Tresorit desktop application for an improved experience and easy file syncing between their devices. The application runs in the background, making sure that all files are up‑to‑date.
