Dropbox is the world’s first smart workspace. We bring all your team’s content together while letting you use the tools you love. It's a cloud storage that allows team members to share, collaborate, and sync larger documents. It's individual focused but they do have enterprise options

Secure collaboration with anyone, anywhere, on any device. Almost the same as Dropbox, however they're enterprise focused.
