What if you could teleport anywhere in the world as long as you remained naked? That would definitely be cool but probably uncomfortable, right? Dropbox is similar. Your data gets "teleported" to any place you need it, but kinda goes naked in the process. Convenient, but certainly not comfortable and definitely not private!
Businesses traditionally collaborate on an on premise file server with file shares and mapped drives. These file servers normally have large file shares that have implied permissions associated with folder and file access. Using Dropbox on a file server ignores existing permissions on files and synchronizes all files to each device. This tends to fill up devices and make files visible to everyone.
This often proves problematic for businesses. Employees move data into Dropbox which compromises data privacy, negates existing permissions, and can inadvertently violate regulatory standards or compliance requirements. And then there's the challenge of managing multiple copies of documents with different revisions. So, continuing the analogy, you're now flying naked, not sure where you are, which language to speak or which laws you've broken.
Perhaps it's time to retire the silly analogy, but the point is clear. How do you get the convenience of Dropbox without sacrificing data privacy, security and control and solve the following problems?
