Dropbox today announced it has been certified for Samsung Knox, a mobile security service that helps protect devices in the event that they become corrupted, stolen, or need to be replaced. In other words, Dropbox is now available on the Knox Apps store, which the company says will give employees the access they want while maintaining “crucial IT control.”

At the same time, Dropbox wants to make it as easy as possible to get Samsung users on board. As such, registered Knox users can try Dropbox for Business free for 90 days over here.
