Dropbox is rolling out new platform features designed to give admins stronger user controls and greater visibility into their teams' Dropbox usage.
Newly released features include a redesigned admin console with a focus on simplifying team management, a new web session control function that limits access to company data, a custom-built password strength estimator that compares passwords against a database to judge viability, and subdomain verification that controls which subdomains receive access to a company Dropbox account.
The update is the latest in a series of admin features the cloud storage company has rolled out over the last year as part of its Admin X initiative, which aims to improve the way businesses and teams use its platform.
The first wave of Admix X features revamped the admin dashboard and added more folder-level controls for document sharing, organization, and security. Dropbox followed up with a November update that added tools for centralized network control, device approvals, and reporting and auditing.
Dropbox says the Admin X initiative has helped the company grow to half a billion registered users and ramp up adoption with businesses. Last June, Dropbox announced that it was cash flow positive, and in January, CEO Drew Houston announced that Dropbox reached $1 billion in revenue run rate "faster than any other SaaS company in history."
