Dropbox had a few surprises that were ready to be announced this afternoon. The cloud storage and sharing service added a few new features to help business streamline and organize their Dropbox accounts.
Now there is “Dropbox for Business” which adds one of the most-wanted features to Dropbox, support for single sign-on (or SSO). As Dropbox explains, “SSO works behind the scenes to let users sign in just once to a central identity provider, like Active Directory, and securely access all their business apps, like Dropbox”. SSO still allows companies to put their existing trusted identity provider in charge of the authentication process.
Already in the works are Ping Identity, Okta, OneLogin, Centrify, and Symplified as single sign-on processes. The new services will launch in a few weeks.
