IBM, Inventit, SoftBank, and Matrix42 EMM integrations now on Dropbox


Published on May 25, 2016

We’re committed to helping our customers use Dropbox as part of their established security workflows. So today, we’re excited to announce the general availability of Enterprise Mobility Management (EMM) support on iOS and Android. And to help customers integrate Dropbox Enterprise with their existing EMM solutions, we’re welcoming four new partners: IBM MaaS360, Inventit, SoftBank Business Concierge, and Matrix42. They’ll join other key partners—including VMware AirWatch, MobileIron, Okta, and Centrify—to make Dropbox available through their EMM solutions. These integrations will allow admins to take advantage of our partners’ EMM visibility and management capabilities, and ensure that users are accessing team accounts from managed devices. Our relationship with IBM MaaS360 will allow IT to easily deploy and manage EMM across their corporate devices. Now, customers using AppConfig for iOS or App Restrictions for Android for Work can easily configure Dropbox in their MaaS360 admin console to only grant access to IT-managed mobile devices. In addition, IBM has joined the Dropbox Premier Partner Program and will work with Dropbox to strengthen product integration that we bring to market. Dropbox and IBM have been working together since 2014 to connect Dropbox with core business applications like SAP and Oracle through an IBM WebSphere® Cast Iron® Cloud integration. Today we're also debuting a new file properties API to better enable solutions that integrate with Dropbox. This will allow third-party providers our customers rely on to add custom metadata capabilities to their data security, data migration, and asset management solutions. Our partners have helped bring Dropbox to millions of users around the world, and have played a vital role in our success. We’re committed to our growing ecosystem, and offering solutions that will help companies speed up collaboration and increase productivity.
