Dropbox is one of those silly, simple applications that are hard to live without once you've become addicted. The only major gripe is that you get "only" 2GB for free, but beggars can't exactly be choosers. Now, Dropbox is branching out with the launch of Dropbox for Teams, including administrative controls and lots more capacity. More than 45 million people already depend on Dropbox, and with Dropbox for Teams, businesses can now experience the same ease-of-use along with new administrative controls, centralized billing, phone support, and plenty of space for everyone on the team.

Dropbox for Teams delivers the same user experience as the free Dropbox service. Adding and updating files is as easy as saving any document, photo or video to the Dropbox folder. Changes sync immediately across all devices which have Dropbox installed. Dropbox is compatible with nearly every computer and smartphone operating system, including Windows, Mac, Linux, iOS, Android, and BlackBerry.

With Dropbox for Teams, administrators get new features including centralized billing, phone support, and controls allowing them to add or delete users. Dropbox for Teams is priced at $795 annually for five users, with additional seats available for $125 each. The base plan includes 1,000 GB of storage, and each additional seat comes with 200 GB.

Like Dropbox, Dropbox for Teams is a secure solution. Files are stored encrypted on Amazon S3 in secure data centers and also remain on users' Dropbox-synced computers for added backup. Pricey, yes, but it's probably a worthwhile investment for profitable businesses. So, are you diving in once you get that IPO?
