For many of us, DropBox is just a convenient place to park files either for backup purposes or to ensure that a copy can always be accessed from any device and any location.
Dropbox for Business is a very different creature, giving companies robust admin capabilities with visibility and control over large volumes of company data. Once one gets into enterprise file sharing and synchronisation services of this kind, it immediately becomes necessary to be able to retrieve it for eDiscovery and other purposes.
Guidance Software’s EnCase eDiscovery has long been used for defensible search and the ability to collect and preserve electronically stored information from company servers and all the other endpoints. EnCase now integrates with DropBox for Business allowing control over the entire eDiscovery process from legal hold to identification, collection, preservation, processing, first-pass review, early case assessment, review and production.
There is a press release with more information about this integration here.
