Analysis: Dropbox Carries Risks For SMBs
By Edward F. Moltzen, CRN

Dropbox, known as a purveyor of cheap cloud storage for consumers, is now targeting small and mid-sized businesses with a new service offering. However, SMBs considering the service need to bear in mind that it lacks key compliance certifications many businesses need, potentially leaving them open to significant financial penalties.

Here is a quote from a user that used Terminal Server daily for years and recently moved to XenApp:

“I LOVE the new system!!  I have been working this weekend and have never been happier!  Things are faster and user friendly!  From us all on site I want to thank you all especially the IT department and Michael!  This is the best!”

30 Years of Rave Reviews

We are very impressed with josh…he seems very knowledgeable and he communicates well…and he just seems like a nice person also…basically our dream consultant….

Again, we’re really impressed with josh and would not hesitate to recommend Nims to anyone.

....and, thank you for all YOU do. We are able to actually breathe easier knowing you're taking care of people. We have trusted you from the get-go because of your high intelligence, your ease at taking in and integrating huge amounts of new knowledge, and your grace and calmness in taking care of…

I’ve sent more than one shining Michael endorsement. The whole company kicks ass.

Can I tell you how we feel about Chris? He is the greatest. He goes way beyond the norm. We can't ask for better service and support. Chris has taken the time to teach me additional things to not only help him but us here which cuts the time we need him here to fix something I can do. Not many…

Our Yardi conversion was challenging. Hiring Nims and in turn working with Marco was the smartest thing we did to assist in this transition. His contribution was priceless. My staff and Board both agree it would have been a nightmare without Nims (Marco).

I was going to say it was the smartest…

We are very satisfied with the professional demeanor of both Tessa and Michael and their willingness to go above and beyond the scope of their expectations to solve our computer-related issues. The immediate and personal attention we receive from Nims when our Firm has an IT issue is impressive, to…

I cannot thank you enough for your help this evening. You have proven that your services are much more valuable than we ever expected - when you guys told me your hourly rate, I thought "no way can we afford that"! lol .... We are small and we do all we can to keep costs down, as I'm sure you…

We are impressed with response times and the general aptitude of your support group. This stands in stark contrast to some of the experiences with other IT resources we’ve patronized in the past.

We have been a client of Nims & Associates for over ten years. Chris has implemented and maintained our network for all of those years. As our network and our needs have changed and grown, Chris has provided excellent support to move us forward. Over the years I have come to know several of the…

Since we switched hosts to Network Solutions, we've had nothing but continuous problems with email and sessions timing out preventing us from opening our online store. Joel went out of his way to solve our problem. This means the world to us. Joel listened and accommodated our needs first before…

Nims and Associates are the best support company I have ever worked with. They get back to my every problem or question in record time. They have been able to help or fix every problem I have come up with. Bill and or Bob are very knowledgeable with all my MASS 200 problems. I would and have…

I have been extremely happy with your service. Michael is truly devoted to his clients and has been great about working with our current vendor to get our issues resolved. The MXLogic transition was seamless. Our users barely noticed the change, which is always a plus. 

As someone who works remotely from a home office, connectivity and a reliable, functioning computer are absolutely critical to my ability to be able to perform. Recently my computer "crashed" and as you can imagine created great inconvenience. Your team of Joel, Tessa and Tim responded immediately.…

Thank you for assigning Don to handle our myriad of computer tasks throughout the year. His expertise and friendly can do personality are a cherished resource within our firm. Whenever the screen goes blank or freezes up we always think "Have no fear Don soon will be here" which he is and things…

Thank you for explaning what you did in an understandable way. You're very patient working with such a small company and treating us as though we were a huge corporation.
