SaaS Operations Management, built for the Enterprise

BetterCloud gives Dropbox admins unprecedented visibility and control over Dropbox data, configuration and settings, empowering you to successfully deploy Dropbox Business across your organisation.


BetterCloud & Dropbox Integration

BetterCloud leverages the Dropbox Admin and Audit Log APIs to enforce management and security policies for Dropbox data, settings and licences.

  • Create advanced alerts. With BetterCloud's advanced monitoring capabilities, you can oversee link sharing activity in Dropbox and send text and email alerts to IT admins when specific activities occur and tie them to trigger a series of automated Dropbox admin actions for remediation.
  • Take action on individual and bulk files. The Data Management grid in BetterCloud gives admins the ability to see the title and path for all files and folders across all Dropbox Teams. Admins can make one-off and also bulk actions on files and folders across their team.
  • Automate user on-boarding and off-boarding. With BetterCloud, you can quickly grant new users access to Dropbox Business and specific folders or files relevant to their role, department or office location. 
  • Assign custom admin roles. Delegate and limit the types of actions that admins can take (create, edit, delete) and the types of data they can act on (users, groups, files) in Dropbox.



Advanced Team & Content Controls Add-On

Dropbox offers a variety of add-on features to give admins even more control of their Dropbox deployments. The Advanced Team & Content Controls Add-On, powered by BetterCloud technology, empowers IT admins greater control over data protection, enhanced visibility and auditability and automated user lifecycle management.

Data Protection Capabilities

  • Automated & on-demand content scanning for Dropbox files – Scan for sensitive content to avoid data vulnerabilities within Dropbox Business accounts. Search for personal information, including pre-built regular expressions, for common compliance use cases (e.g. PCI, PII, HIPAA, HITECH, FERPA, FISMA).
  • Automated threat response – For any sensitive data that is not properly secured, IT can create granular policies and automate actions, including transferring document ownership, changing all editors to viewers and removing all collaborators. 
  • Custom security policies for granular management – Automated policies can alert on misconfigurations with custom conditioning & remediation. 

Enhanced Visibility & Auditability

  • Enhanced Visibility & Insights – Report on and create a single view of Dropbox user, group and file activity and content settings. Take bulk action on users and content to efficiently make changes.
  • Granular auditability of Dropbox admins – View and manage all of your Dropbox admins, their activity, and changes they make. Pull reports needed for regulatory audits, and create least privilege roles for Team Admins to give IT the power to control who can manage what within Dropbox.

User Lifecycle Management

  • Account Capture – As you enforce migration from personal to Enterprise accounts, BetterCloud can automate and customise Account Capture workflows to set recurring processes and improve IT support response time.
  • Speed Up Onboarding/Offboarding Workflows – Streamline employee onboarding & offboarding with automated workflows to ensure new employees have access on Day 1, and are restricted from sensitive content when they leave the organisation or change roles.
