Couldn't I just do this using TrueCrypt? And it still doesn't solve granularity in access problems, which I think is the core enterprise problem with Dropbox.

If you want to add extra security to Dropbox then http://safeboxapp.com is worth considering. Safebox encrypts your content *before* it is synced to the cloud by Dropbox (disclaimer, I am on the Safebox development team). As a result Dropbox couldn't access your documents, even to create previews.

re: Dropbox Responds To Security Flap
The quick response is nice, but Dropbox really needs it--the past history isn't great (disabling auth for four hours; bad internal InfoSec with employees reusing passwords and storing customer information on Dropbox), and Dropbox is basically synonymous with "shadow IT" and all of the problems with the consumerization of IT.

Ultimately, Dropbox just wasn't built with InfoSec in mind, and certainly doesn't have the features that are necessary if you care about securing data in a shared environment. Anyone using Dropbox for confidential information is just asking for trouble.

What do users think about Dropbox's response? Quicker than we might have seen from larger companies. Chime in please.
