Rajan Kapoor, Senior Manager for Trust and Security at Dropbox, stressed the importance of usable, universally adoptable, services for long-term enterprise security.
"What I want to find a way for is what can we do to start creating a compelling business value to bring this information back in, to bring it back in for collaboration, to bring it back in for the security of the data, for the ability to grow and gain new insights out of this knowledge that today is being created outside of our purview."
"Balancing that collaboration versus control pendulum that we all seek to strike that right balance, and doing this literally across the spectrum [can make] sure that users are being more productive [and] that they can share and have the right level of security."
"The evolution of the way people are collaborating and sharing we see as driving a need for a different set of security models. Identity becomes that much more critical. Single sign-on becomes that much more critical. Providing services and APIs and architectures that allow things to be plugged in while still maintaining control has become more and more critical."
"The intersection between adoption and control is really important because the more people you get to adopt a tool, the more control you get, and that is actually more important than having that extra layer of tightness."
"If you’re using Dropbox at work, we want you to be able to do it in the managed solution that gives you all the admin control, auditability and sharing capability that you’d expect within a business. That’s our mission."
"It’s a balance between what your users want from your company and what the security requirements are for your business. You have to meet in the middle somewhere. You can’t be completely on the other side."
