Dropbox for Business: security information

  • https://www.dropbox.com/static/business/resources/Security_Whitepaper.pdf
  • To protect data in transit between Dropbox apps and our servers, Dropbox uses Secure Sockets Layer (SSL)/Transport Layer
    Security (TLS) for data transfer, creating a secure tunnel protected by 128-bit or higher Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) encryption. File data in transit between a Dropbox client (currently desktop, mobile, API, or web) and the hosted service is
    always encrypted via SSL/TLS. For end points we control (desktop and mobile) and modern browsers, we use strong ciphers and support perfect forward secrecy and certificate pinning. Additionally, on the web we flag all authentication cookies as secure and enable HTTP Strict Transport Security (HSTS) with includeSubDomains enabled.
