DROP BOX - how does it sync

Hi all, i do not use drop box but i have been asked to stop domain joined computers from syncing with drop box out on the internet.

Does anyone know the mechanism drop box uses to sync with the cloud? Is it http, https, ftp or ?

i can stop users from browsing to the drop box website easily enough by blocking the URL but i am also wanting to stop current users from syncing with drop box.

Any ideas please?

Thanks

I am a little puzzled by this. Dropbox users have an account to which they sync from any device that they have. Are you suggesting that they are sharing folders? See this
