Box’s cloud drive works for virtually any file type, enabling multiple people to collaborate without the risk of version-control issues. For colleagues, employees, and external partners, Box enables quick access to files from any device, so they are free to be productive wherever they are. Plus, Box’s cloud storage ensures you always have an online backup handy and can access data from anywhere.

Manage all your content securely online

Box is equipped with enterprise-grade security, with encryption of documents in transit and at rest. Through the Admin Console, admins can manage the company’s files and folders at a granular level by setting classifications, sharing options, and access controls. Employees using Box can also set auto-expiration and password protection on shared links for particular files, or manually delete a link when that file is no longer needed. Box’s cloud storage enables the optimal balance between content accessibility and security.

Collaborate effectively

Box’s capabilities go beyond only cloud storage. You can upload files and folders and use shared links to actively collaborate on them in real time, with people inside and outside of your organization. You can also control permissions on a per-user basis, and even enable view-only access by locking a file from edits with Box Drive. Never worry about version control or losing a file or folder, since Box always saves earlier versions automatically, in case you need to go back.

Store data locally
