Pricing and Cost Advice
"Its price is quite cheap. It is quite competitive. You just need to pay for the license. There are no additional costs.""You pay as you go, which is a good thing. There is a monthly fee, and you can also pay annually. This flexibility makes the subscription easier and affordable for some of us. I prefer yearly pricing, which is also slightly cheaper than monthly pricing.""It has some free features, but for some of the features, you need to pay. If you need more storage, then you need to pay. Its licensing probably is on a monthly basis.""I am on a monthly subscription for the solution and I am somewhat satisfied with the pricing. However, the price could a bit better.""There is a subscription-based pricing model and I pay monthly.""We pay a monthly subscription fee.""The solution is purchased on a subscription basis, and there are purchasing options. If you purchase annually there is a discount.""A basic version of Dropbox is available for free with a paid subscription from Microsoft."

Overview

Dropbox provides cloud-based file syncing, sharing, and storage. It specializes in helping large-scale businesses stay organized and productive while protecting the integrity of sensitive information with enterprise-level security. Dropbox is a valuable solution for businesses looking to simplify communication, safeguard information, and improve collaboration. Dropbox's platform provides a user-friendly, real-time sharing and storage solution for large businesses. The company's enterprise-level service plan includes 256-bit AES and SSL encryption, an optional two-step verification process, and optional mobile passcodes, which provide tight security to protect sensitive information. Dropbox uniquely offers a remote wipe feature, which allows businesses to keep data safe when an employee leaves the company or a computer is lost. Dropbox stands out from the competition by offering businesses expanded storage, unlimited file recovery and versioning, and control over sharing permissions. Additionally, Dropbox provides businesses with team management solutions, including device and location tracking, login tracking, detailed user management options for administrators, and centralized billing. Collaboration between team members is further simplified with the addition of various Dropbox apps that allow advanced functionality such as document editing, CRM, and e-signatures. Dropbox has become one of the most popular business tools, entrusted by 97 percent of all Fortune 500 companies. Before implementing Dropbox, global apparel merchandiser BCBGMAXAZRIA was struggling to structure communication and increase company-wide efficiency, which resulted in the need for increased staff hours and expenses. Since choosing Dropbox as its cloud-based sharing and storage solution, BCBGMAXAZRIA has been able to restructure its file sharing and collaboration streams in every department. As a result, BCBGMAXAZRIA is able to boost efficiency, reduce expenses, and protect its information throughout all 550 locations.

SpiderOak is a cloud-based data storage center where users can securely retrieve files from any device. The service is designed to keep data private while letting it be opened and synced across multiple computers and mobile devices. Its zero-knowledge policy assures the user that the information cannot be attained by unauthorized users, not even SpiderOak staff. SpiderOak cloud services are automatically backed up so changes and edits are immediately saved. Changes made to data can be synced in full or in part and can be shared with other users through SpiderOak, using their password protected ShareRooms. Users have the advantage of accessing data from any device within the SpiderOak network either by phone, tablet, or web browser. Lastly, data can be stored with SpiderOak from multiple operating systems _ Mac, Windows, and Linux _ in addition to storing data from external hard drives. The privacy guaranteed by SpiderOak means no one, even with server access, can read file or folder names. Unlike encryption keys stored with customer data, SpiderOak's passwords cannot be decrypted or recovered; no information about a user's unique encryption key is kept on file. SpiderOak has been used by numerous businesses for cloud secure data. A large multi-national organization used the cloud service to backup millions of desktops, including those with limited online connectivity. SpiderOak helped the organization maintain access to local files, work within local compliance requirements, and control potential data leaks.
