Dropbox for Business grows more security, IT admin muscles
"Dropbox will continue beefing up the business version of its cloud storage and file sharing service, adding security features to shared links, full-text search capabilities and new tools for enterprise developers.
For Dropbox content shared via links, it will now be possible for users to require a password for access to the content and set an expiration date for the link. This feature can be turned on by Dropbox admins now for their end users.
In the coming months, Dropbox for Business will also gain a full-text search engine, an upgrade over the current search feature which is limited to querying file names.
Dropbox is also extending its improved Microsoft Office document preview capabilities to its Android application, so that users can check out a file without necessarily downloading it, the company plans to announce on Wednesday.”
