With cloud file sharing rapidly becoming one of the fastest growing markets in the technology sector today, SMBs are no longer depending on just one device to access and share files, but multiple devices — and in multiple locations. As the need for flexible file and data accessibility tools continues to gain increased traction and approval among organizations big and small, Dropbox, a leading provider of Internet file and document syncing services has been a key component, in particular, to the growth of the SMB market.
As channel partners seek flexible, secure, and collaborative solutions that tap into the business needs of SMBs, Ingram Micro is pleased to announce a global distribution agreement with Dropbox, which now allows us to offer the leading file collaboration service in our cloud portfolio. Considered one of the most recognized collaboration platforms currently on the market, the addition of Dropbox to our cloud portfolio not only enhances our competitive position in the industry, but significantly strengthens our cloud offerings to better serve our channel partners and their customers.
“Together with Ingram Micro, a global leader in cloud, we can deliver greater value to our mutual partners and the SMB community by driving new business growth throughout North America, with plans for future expansion,” said Hank Humphreys, Channel Chief at Dropbox. “As part of Ingram Micro’s cloud portfolio, our customers can now bundle and sell unique Dropbox Business offerings to leverage untapped SMB opportunities and increase business transformation in the cloud.”
Built on a highly scalable and versatile infrastructure, Dropbox works across all devices and platforms, and complements a number of existing vendors in our cloud portfolio. Through Dropbox’s ability to seamlessly integrate with solutions like Microsoft Office 365, and in the near future with Trend Micro™ Cloud App Security, channel partners are able to efficiently cross-sell and deliver a complete and affordable offering that boosts collaboration, security, productivity, and communication — a major sweet spot for SMBs looking to quickly and successfully grow their business.
“We are excited about this strategic partnership with Dropbox and the significant value it has added to our cloud portfolio,” said Tarik Faouzi, VP, Global Cloud Partners and Solutions, Ingram Micro Cloud. “In the era of increased remote collaboration, a secured and controlled file sharing environment is critical to the productivity, performance, and growth of SMBs. With Dropbox in our portfolio, we can now offer a complete solution set that delivers measurable business success.”
To further empower business transformation in the cloud, Ingram Micro anticipates expanding our alliance with Dropbox as well as offering it on the Ingram Micro Cloud Marketplace in the coming months.
