AUSTIN: Dell has joined forces with Dropbox to make it easier for customers to access data from anywhere using the cloud.

The deal, which was announced at the firm's Dell World conference in Texas on Thursday, means Dell can offer its customers Dropbox for Business. This will provide a secure enterprise file-sharing and collaboration solution, as well as IT control and visibility of data.

"I'm pleased to announce a strategic partnership with Dropbox," said Michael Dell during the opening keynote on Thursday. "Pairing Dropbox for business with our own Dell data-protection cloud service, this gives customers an industry-leading solution that encrypts and protects their data as it moves in and out of public clouds."

Offering Dropbox for Business through its own sales organisation, the partnership means Dropbox will soon be pre-installed on Dell devices, so employees will have access to the service at all times.

Dropbox's partnerships executive Kevin Chung said, "This partnership will give businesses several ways for employees to work better together. For starters, Dell will offer Dropbox for Business to its customers as a solution to help employees access company information from wherever they are, and let IT maintain control over corporate data."

The partnership will also bring Dropbox for Business integration into the Dell Data Protection Cloud service, part of the Dell Data Protection solutions portfolio.
Dell said Dropbox for Business will be available in Europe, the Middle East and Africa in late 2014, with announcements in developments across Dell's consumer and commercial client platforms due "in the coming months".
