Dropbox

For my company, Dropbox was nearly ideal. The main problem was the price. Our IT department could not justify keeping it for all departments, so in the end it was only specific users or departments that were using it. This led to some inconsistencies within the organization, as different people shared cloud files in different ways. However, for my department's needs, Dropbox was essential. It was the only service available to us that was fast enough, reliable enough, and full-featured enough for our needs. It is excellent for both cloud-based project collaboration and cloud-based file sharing.For single-user setups, Dropbox may be overkill. There are cheaper or even free alternatives that may meet the needs of many users.

Zix Secure File Sharing (DeliverySlip)

Zix Secure File Sharing (DeliverySlip) is well suited for people or companies that are constantly having to share or request sensitive information with/from customers: ACH, credit card info, financial info, etc. I think every finance department should use Zix Secure File Sharing (DeliverySlip). Also, every small business should use it because small businesses are so vulnerable to being hacked, and Zix Secure File Sharing (DeliverySlip) can protect you and your customers. However, Zix Secure File Sharing (DeliverySlip) would not be the easiest replacement to your regular email. If there were a way to integrate both, ] it would be amazing. But for now, you have to treat it as a supplemental email address.

Cons

Dropbox

  • Our repository has grown with time. Replicating the entire repository on a new machine takes a long time.
  • You can share with people outside of Dropbox. That can be confusing for people who don't use Dropbox.
  • It would be helpful to have better differentiation between personal and work files.
Robert Gephart | TrustRadius Reviewer

Zix Secure File Sharing (DeliverySlip)

  • The platform could look like and behave more like an email box
  • Maybe having a way to integrate with Outlook/Microsoft email so you can email from one platform
  • The invitation email could be tailored to match the look and logo of the company

Dropbox is a user-friendly, easy tool which requires little to no skill and they offer a free version with a good amount of storage available. There are other file sharing tools available however at a cost. Dropbox free version I have used for years and it serves every purpose I need.

Dropbox is dead simple to us since right out of the box, it creates a folder on your PC and anything added to it gets synced to the cloud and any other device signed into that account. You can then dive deeper into permissions, version history, etc. Overall though, the minimalist approach is welcome since not everyone we work with is highly technical and that itself saves us time and money. Many of our colleagues already use Dropbox for their personal cloud so no training is required when using it at work other than going over our own company guidelines and best practices.

Dropbox is really useful, you can access any file from anywhere and you can upload and even edit files online, but, sometimes it can be slow. Downloading, uploading, and syncing is a bit slow, it can take several minutes. Furthermore, the search engine for large amounts of data can be slow too and it is not powerful.

It has not been necessary to go to customer support lately, since everything works perfectly. However, I must add that at the beginning when I started using Dropbox, and I had any doubts about how it worked, customer support was always attentive and found the best solutions effectively.

Alternatives Considered

Dropbox

While Amazon Drive is frequently faster, it has less friendly user interfaces that our employees have difficulty understanding. Dropbox has a largely intuitive user interface that employees are able to use effectively. DropBox offered better customer support than AmazonDrive, which was another factor in making the purchase. Finally, more employees were already familiar with Dropbox (having used it in their personal lives), which made the transition for our business worthwhile.

Zix Secure File Sharing (DeliverySlip)

Zix Secure File Sharing (DeliverySlip) is a step up from the regular email encryption options provided at the basic level of Microsoft emails. However, it does lack the integration and some features that Virtru has. Overall it still is a great choice for any company or person to protect their information online, and it is super easy to use.
