A secure tool for storing, syncing, and sharing files
Dropbox Business is a secure, Harvard-sanctioned tool for storing, syncing, and sharing files. Entire labs can promote collaboration using SmartSync, which provides a platform for accessing shared data without taking up valuable space on your computers.
Two-factor authentication (2FA) is required for the HMS Dropbox service, so you must set up the ️Duo mobile app. If you have been issued an HMS, HSDM, or Wyss email address that ends in harvard.edu, you already have 2FA enabled.
Note – Due to recent ransomware activity targeting area hospitals, the hospital may block attachments sent via email. If you share files via a Dropbox email link, the recipient does not need a Dropbox account to access the shared files. Simply clicking on the Dropbox link in the email will allow the recipient to view or download the file.
Your Dropbox account will be provisioned in 1–2 business days.
