NEW YORK, Nov. 8, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- BetterCloud, the leading SaaS operations management platform, and Dropbox, Inc., a leading global collaboration platform, today announced an expanded partnership and technology integration for enterprise organizations to secure their business-critical data with Dropbox. Joint customers can now define, execute and manage policies to meet day-to-day operational management and security requirements within their Dropbox application environment.
"There's no question that SaaS has made employees more productive, and companies like Dropbox want to further empower IT teams with advanced security features to expand adoption of tools like Dropbox Business across their organizations," said Shreyas Sadalgi, Chief Business Strategy Officer of BetterCloud. "This is precisely why our partnership with Dropbox is so important. As more applications create more dispersed data, our integration with Dropbox allows IT departments to better manage who is accessing data without sacrificing the ease of use that make people more productive."
BetterCloud and Dropbox are already providing hundreds of customers with robust data security and operations management capabilities.
Additionally, in a step to further extend its partnership, Dropbox has selected BetterCloud to join their new security, operations and governance ecosystem of strategic technology partners as a premier partner.
Dropbox will also be offering a special edition of "BetterCloud for Dropbox" to all of their customers for $2 /user/month.
New features available today through this partnership and special edition pricing include On-Demand Workflows and Time-Based Roles. With On-Demand workflows, Dropbox admins can run customizable, automated sequences of Dropbox admin actions directly from the Users and Files grids of BetterCloud, taking advantage of built-in filtering and bulk options to easily target the right set of users or files, and run workflows on many users at once. Time-based roles give Dropbox admins access to BetterCloud only at specific times, ensuring that access to govern Dropbox data is turned on only when necessary and when it aligns with the least privilege model of security.
"This deeper partnership with BetterCloud will allow our joint customers to empower their employees to use the tools they love — like Dropbox — with seamless security built in," said Billy Blau, Global Head of Business Development and Partnerships for Dropbox. "We've been impressed with the capabilities of the BetterCloud platform and look forward to offering these new integrations to our customers."
This expanded partnership comes on the heels of momentous growth in 2017. Since securing its $60M funding round earlier this year, BetterCloud has established a partnership and technology integration with identity access management leader Okta and significantly expanded its long-standing partnership with Google. The company has also made significant additions to its SaaS Operations Management platform with the introduction of Activity-Based Alerts for G Suite and the many other applications the company supports. BetterCloud was also recently recognized by Gartner, Inc. in its inaugural Cloud Office Management Market Guide and by 451 Research as a pioneer in the SaaS Operations Management market.
BetterCloud is the first SaaS Operations Management platform, empowering IT to define, remediate, and enforce management and security policies for SaaS applications. Over 2,500 customers in 60+ countries rely on BetterCloud for continuous event monitoring, quickly remediating threats, and fully-automated policy enforcement. To further guide customers on their SaaS strategy, the company established the first-ever "SaaS Application Management and Security Framework" in its newly published book, Controlling Your SaaS Environment.
