XIOSS Announces Partnership with Dropbox for Business

Atlanta, GA, August 19, 2014 --(PR.com)-- XIOSS, a leader in enterprise data storage consulting and professional services, has entered into a partnership with Dropbox for Business, broadening its wide range of cloud storage and collaborative sharing features and information controls available to clients.

The affiliation with Dropbox for Business is yet another venture by XIOSS toward the selective and diligent assembly of a best-of-breed portfolio of partners. It furthers XIOSS’s mission of existing for the sole purpose of helping clients protect, manage and store their data; one of their most valued assets.

“We are excited about this new relationship with Dropbox,” says XIOSS CEO and Founder Susie Galyardt. “Dropbox for Business increases business efficiencies for our clients, saving them time and money while ensuring security and scalability for their data growth. Safeguarding data is our priority at XIOSS, as it is with Dropbox.”

Strong cipher encryption in transit and at rest is employed by Dropbox for Business, as well as file segmentation and hashing to anonymize stored data. The application undergoes regular audits and a SOC Type 2 report is available. Teams are able to secure accounts further with authentication features like single sign-on (SSO) support and two-step verification.

More than 300,000 applications integrate the Dropbox cloud platform, says Ilya Fushman, the head of product for Dropbox. Clients are able to share with collaborators in Cisco WebEx meetings, edit Microsoft Office documents with CloudOn, and get PDFs approved with DocuSign. Dropbox for Business also gives team members self-service features such as unlimited deletion recovery and device unlinking. The service enables the syncing of files and folders across all devices simply and securely.

"This partnership with Dropbox for Business will enable XIOSS clients to maintain greater control over their exponential growth of data by providing unlimited data storage, meet their scalability needs, and provide a singular solution to file sharing,” Ms. Galyardt says. The application also affords clients’ IT administrators comprehensive audit logs to track sharing. Likewise, there are easy-to-execute controls to restrict access, while remote wipes secure data should a device become dislocated.

Dropbox for Business coordinates with the vast majority of applications customers already utilize to be productive such as Word, Excel, Photoshop and Acrobat. It also supports Windows, Android, iOS, Mac, and Linux so that no employee is out of the information loop.

What does it look like when you have access to cloud infrastructure and platform under the same roof? Let’s talk about the different layers of Technology as a Service: who cares, what runs where, and how does it all fit together.

Developing software for the Internet of Things (IoT) comes with its own set of challenges. Security, privacy, and unified standards are a few key issues. In addition, each IoT product is comprised of (at least) three separate application components: the software embedded in the device, the back-end service, and the mobile application for the end user’s controls. Each component is developed by a different team, using different technologies and practices, and deployed to a different stack/target –...

According to Forrester Research, every business will become either a digital predator or digital prey by 2020. To avoid demise, organizations must rapidly create new sources of value in their end-to-end customer experiences. True digital predators also must break down information and process silos and extend digital transformation initiatives to empower employees with the digital resources needed to win, serve, and retain customers.
A strange thing is happening along the way to the Internet of Things, namely far too many devices to work with and manage. It has become clear that we'll need much higher efficiency user experiences that can allow us to more easily and scalably work with the thousands of devices that will soon be in each of our lives. Enter the conversational interface revolution, combining bots we can literally talk with, gesture to, and even direct with our thoughts, with embedded artificial intelligence, wh...
Complete Internet of Things (IoT) embedded device security is not just about the device but involves the entire product’s identity, data and control integrity, and services traversing the cloud. A device can no longer be looked at as an island; it is a part of a system. In fact, given the cross-domain interactions enabled by IoT it could be a part of many systems. Also, depending on where the device is deployed, for example, in the office building versus a factory floor or oil field, security ha...
Ask someone to architect an Internet of Things (IoT) solution and you are guaranteed to see a reference to the cloud. This would lead you to believe that IoT requires the cloud to exist. However, there are many IoT use cases where the cloud is not feasible or desirable. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Dave McCarthy, Director of Products at Bsquare Corporation, will discuss the strategies that exist to extend intelligence directly to IoT devices and sensors, freeing them from the constraints of ...

Legacy systems can restrict companies that are transitioning into digital enterprises. To truly become a lea...
