Dropbox Inc. Key Developments

MobileIron and Dropbox Enable Secure Document Collaboration

MobileIron announced that MobileIron Access, the company's cloud security product, is integrated with Dropbox Business. MobileIron Access ensures that only trusted users, on trusted devices, using trusted apps can access enterprise data in cloud services. Now, through the integration with MobileIron Access, IT administrators can give employees instant access to Dropbox and leverage administrative capabilities including device approvals, network control, and extensive audit logs to ensure company data is not accessed by unauthorized users, devices, apps, or cloud services. MobileIron Access addresses the entire cloud service lifecycle: Easy on-boarding; Single sign-on (SSO) authentication; Policy enforcement; Conditional access; Data-in-motion and data-at-rest security; Audit and compliance reporting. The integration with MobileIron Access builds on Dropbox's enterprise mobility management (EMM) security controls by delivering SSO capabilities. The siloed sandbox architecture of mobile apps prevents traditional SSO techniques from working effectively so employees using a variety of cloud services like Concur, Office 365, Salesforce, or Tableau need to provide their credentials every time they log into an app. MobileIron Access ensures that the mobile endpoint is registered with MobileIron, that the Dropbox Business app is managed, and then uses MobileIron Tunnel, a per-app VPN solution, for authentication. MobileIron Tunnel employs a user certificate to generate the single sign-on (SAML) token in order to provide seamless single sign-on to Dropbox and other enterprise-managed cloud services such as Concur, Office 365, Salesforce, and Tableau. This integrated experience provides employees with a simple user experience, and ensures enterprise data is protected.
