Introduction – Single Sign-on (SSO) for Dropbox

Practice Protect provides SSO, automated account provisioning for Dropbox Business & Enterprise editions

Practice Protect offers a best-in-class Identity and Access Management solution for Dropbox Enterprise and Business customers, providing secure single sign-on, automatic user provisioning, and mobile device management, all from a centralized interface.

Businesses struggle with managing how employees use Internet-based file storage. IT needs to control the spread of sensitive corporate data and prevent security breaches from username and password combinations that may be shared across different apps. Corporate users are frustrated as well, since they typically have to create and remember unique passwords for every app, and may find using Dropbox is easier than logging into a legacy corporate fileshare.

Practice Protect Application Services and Dropbox simplify company file sharing and eliminate the hassles for IT and end users. Dropbox allows users to access their data from anywhere, and synchronizes data securely across devices. Adding enterprise-grade identity access management from Practice Protect makes it easy for IT to deploy and manage how employees access corporate Dropbox accounts.


With Practice Protect, you can centrally provision new users, create custom access policies, and automatically revoke access when needed. Thanks to SAML, employees can log in using their existing credentials from desktop or mobile devices without having to remember a unique, app-specific username or password.

Practice Protect helps lower the cost to roll out and manage Dropbox and other cloud services, and improves user adoption, satisfaction and productivity.
