New connector integrates Dropbox for Business to any existing on-premises storage platform in minutes
ANN ARBOR, Mich. (Dec. 3, 2014) – Portal Architects, the creators of SkySync, today announced an integration with Dropbox for Business that enables customers to address their data migration needs seamlessly between most any on-site or other cloud-based storage platform. Dropbox for Business provides teams with the power, security, and performance of Dropbox, along with robust admin capabilities that give IT visibility and control over company data. SkySync now becomes one of several leading service providers building upon the new Dropbox for Business API in order to offer increased enterprise-grade functionality within Dropbox for Business.
“SkySync makes it incredibly easy to integrate Dropbox for Business to an organization’s existing storage infrastructure, without any business disruption or heavy lifting,” said Mark Brazeau, Portal Architects CEO. “Companies are no longer tethered to their existing storage platforms and functionality; they can fully integrate Dropbox for Business to these systems in minutes, while rolling it out to users at their own pace.”
The Dropbox for Business API enables developers to build a wide range of integrations that further support critical business needs for the companies that run on Dropbox for Business. These integrations extend the power of the Dropbox Platform by addressing new areas including security information & event management (SIEM), data loss prevention (DLP), eDiscovery, digital rights management (DRM), and data migration.
Now, with Dropbox for Business, SkySync offers data migration and bi-directional synchronization tools that make it easier to move all of your company’s data to Dropbox – whether it’s stored in a network file server, most ECM platforms or spread across a mix of other providers.
Designed for the enterprise, SkySync migrates and/or fully synchronizes files, permissions and properties across platforms automatically. It tightly integrates existing Network or ECM storage systems such as SharePoint and others to Dropbox for Business in minutes.
“Dropbox for Business is all about simplifying the way people and companies work, and a big part of that is enabling integrations with the services our customers already use to meet their various business needs,” said George O’Brien, product manager for Dropbox for Business. “We’re excited to work with SkySync to help our customers seamlessly migrate data into Dropbox for Business from wherever it currently resides.”
