5 Enterprise Alternatives to Dropbox

The recent Dropbox data breach has many IT executives telling employees not to use it. These five products offer the administrative and security features that may restore their faith in cloud data storage.

The word "breach" can send shivers down your spine. When it comes to data storage in the cloud, it's even more worrisome. Several weeks ago, Dropbox announced that the passwords for thousands of users had been stolen, leading some business executives to mandate that employees stop using the service.
