A new press release states, “Dropbox today announced Symantec has joined the Dropbox Partner Network. Expanding on an existing partnership, Symantec and Dropbox will support multiple integration initiatives, helping enterprise customers address access management and data protection challenges. In addition to network control interoperability, the agreement includes data loss prevention integration, which will allow joint customers to better monitor and protect sensitive data in Dropbox and across other cloud services. ‘We are pleased to partner with Dropbox to provide customers market-leading, enterprise-grade security solutions that seamlessly work with their content in the cloud,’ said Peter Doggart, Vice President of Business Development at Symantec. ‘As part of our joint efforts with Dropbox, we can provide customers peace of mind that their stored data in the cloud is safe from accidental loss or theft. And, we’re able to offer CIOs more visibility and control across their corporate networks and enhance the overall collaboration and security experience’.”

The release goes on, “Dropbox customers can now benefit from Symantec’s market leading Data Loss Prevention (DLP) solution coupled with Symantec’s CloudSOC CASB solution (formerly Blue Coat/Elastica) to address the security needs of the cloud generation. This integrated solution provides chief information security officers (CISOs) with visibility and control over all sensitive content that users upload, store, and share via the cloud. In addition, it protects confidential information through all stages of its lifecycle, anywhere and everywhere it travels… Since launching the Dropbox Partner Network in November 2015, Dropbox has signed partnerships with more than 30 leading security vendors, including Cisco/Cloudlock, HPE, IBM, Microsoft, Okta, Palo Alto Networks, RSA, and VMware AirWatch, among others. In addition, Dropbox began rolling out a series of APIs that enhance the ability to define collaboration and increase data governance—enabling partners and customers to build more solutions with Dropbox.”
