BitTitan Announces the First and Only Solution for Migration of Dropbox Data to Corporate IT Environments

BitTitan extends MigrationWiz’s data migration capabilities to enable partners and businesses to take on shadow IT and consolidate into corporate IT.

KIRKLAND, Wash. – December 8, 2014 – BitTitan, the IT change automation expert for cloud-based migration and onboarding, today announced it has added Dropbox™ as a new source to its automated data migration solution, MigrationWiz™. This makes MigrationWiz the first and only solution that enables partners and companies of all sizes to easily migrate from Dropbox to OneDrive™ for Business, a part of Microsoft® Office 365™, or to Google Drive™, a part of Google Apps™. It is ideal for companies looking to consolidate and move all of their data to the cloud or to consolidate corporate data by moving from a shadow IT environment to a controlled, secure corporate IT environment.

Recent research from Statista estimates that the cloud storage industry is expected to generate more than $4.04 billion in revenue by 2016. However, cloud storage solutions such as Dropbox pose significant security risks for corporate data. As companies look to move their data to more controlled environments, they need a solution that can quickly and easily perform the migration.

BitTitan’s MigrationWiz is the fastest and easiest way to migrate mailboxes, public folders, documents, archives and PST files across platforms while keeping data structure, hierarchies and permissions intact. All files supported by OneDrive and Google Drive can be easily migrated from Dropbox without any data degradation. Furthermore, MigrationWiz does not store the transferred data during the migration process.

“As partners and companies look to move their data to corporate IT, away from Dropbox, or consolidate their data to the cloud, they don’t have to switch solutions. We added Dropbox support to MigrationWiz so they can use the same migration solution they’re already familiar and had great success with,” said Geeman Yip, CEO and founder of BitTitan. “In addition, this functionality is a huge business opportunity for our partners as it enables them to further grow their business by offering data storage in the cloud and the associated migration services that complement their existing mailbox and Office 365 migration practice.”

The cost of migrating data from Dropbox to Office 365 or Google Apps is $11.99 per 10GB. MigrationWiz Dropbox migration is available immediately at

What VPN Is Right For You?

With today’s increasingly mobile and remote workforce, enterprises need solutions that provide secure, external access to the corporate network. While Virtual Private Networks (VPNs) as an option have been around for a while, they have had shortcomings for enterprise mobility in the past. However, with Apple’s iOS 8, VPNs may be the way go. This is because iOS 8 eliminates the security and technical issues, enabling the creation of a truly secure business container. The question now is, which VPN is right for your business?

Enterprise mobility leader Cortado created an infographic to help businesses decide which VPN fits their niche. This includes:

  • Standard VPN
  • VPN on Demand
  • Per App VPN
  • Always-on VPN

The infographic was developed shortly after Cortado’s partnership with F5. Through the partnership, Cortado Corporate Server, the ONE solution for all enterprise mobility needs, and F5’s BIG-IP® Access Policy Manager (APM) enable businesses to take full advantage of iOS’ per app VPN.
