This article is written to explain how we are able to prevent installing Dropbox on individual user workstations.
We have implemented a singe corporate Dropbox account. The Dropbox profile is kept secured to IT administration only. Any partner simply shares their Dropbox folder with us or we create a folder to share with a specific organization.
Users access the files on the local corporate network as they would any other document. Because it is a shared folder, access can be limited by network (Active Directory) security rights within your organization.
Assumes a Windows network or Samba Share and users accessing those network share resources.
Network Shares are created and appropriate security applied.
Server setup was accomplished using Ubuntu 16.04 LTS
