Identity Management and Active Directory SSO for Dropbox

Centrify provides SSO, automated account provisioning for Dropbox Business & Enterprise editions

Centrify is a premier security partner in Dropbox’s technology partner program. Centrify offers a best-in-class Identity and Access Management solution for Dropbox Enterprise and Business customers, providing secure single sign-on, automatic user provisioning, and mobile device management, all from a centralized interface.

In addition, Centrify has partnered with Dropbox on two major new security initiatives: Cloud Access Security, through integrations with mutual CASB partners, and Dropbox’s EMM Initiative, to help protect against the leading point of attack used in data breaches ― compromised identities. Centrify’s delivery of these new capabilities across the Dropbox ecosystem results in a first-of-its-kind partnership.

Enterprises struggle with managing how employees use Internet-based file storage. IT needs to control the spread of sensitive corporate data and prevent security breaches from username and password combinations that may be shared across different apps. Corporate users are frustrated as well, since they typically have to create and remember unique passwords for every app, and may find using Dropbox is easier than logging into a legacy corporate fileshare.

Simplify access to Dropbox for Business across user devices (2:35 mins).

Centrify Identity Service and Dropbox simplify corporate file sharing and eliminate the hassles for IT and end users. Dropbox allows users to access their data from anywhere, and synchronizes data securely across devices. Adding enterprise-grade identity access management from Centrify makes it easy for IT to deploy and manage how employees access corporate Dropbox accounts.

With Centrify, IT can centrally provision new users, create custom access policies, and automatically revoke access when needed. Thanks to SAML, employees can log in using their existing credentials from desktop or mobile devices without having to remember a unique, app-specific username or password.

Centrify helps lower the cost to roll out and manage Dropbox and other cloud services, and improves user adoption, satisfaction and productivity.

What’s Included?

Integration with Active Directory

A five-minute installation securely connects your Active Directory to Dropbox. Centrify works without replicating sensitive Active Directory data into the cloud or a third-party, and requires no changes to firewall policies. If your business doesn’t use Active Directory, or wants 100% cloud-based identity for users outside of the corporate network, Centrify supports that too.

Automated Account Provisioning

When IT creates a new user in Active Directory, Centrify can automatically create a Dropbox account for them, with the correct authorization, and single sign-on access. When that user leaves, Centrify automatically revokes Dropbox access — ensuring only the right users have access at all times.
