Dropbox opens business package to all as early access ends

The cloud file-sharing firm will showcase a range of collaborative features tomorrow.

By Jimmy Nicholls

Dropbox has made its business package available to everyone, following the end of its early access period.

The cloud storage company originally revealed Dropbox for Business in November, inviting people to sign up for early access.

The service aimed to seamlessly connect personal and business accounts instead of making users switch between profiles to access separated files.

However, the solution is now open to all, the firm revealed in a blog post, in which they also hinted at "Project Harmony", which will allow multiple users to track who is editing a file, discuss projects and synchronise copies.

The service currently costs $175 per year for five users, with each additional user charged at $125.

Controls can be put in place to restrict access of specific files to particular team members, allow users access to files from third party apps and track what has been shared.

Admins will also have the power to remotely delete files from former employee accounts, or select who will inherit the files as staff move on.

Dropbox faces significant competition in the cloud storage market, with Google, Box, Microsoft and Amazon all offering alternatives.

Alongside the business package launch, the company today claimed to have 275 million users, an increase from November’s 200 million.

In January the Wall Street Journal reported that the company was valued at $10bn, and had raised $250m at a funding round.
