  • Secure File Sharing: sending files via email is insecure, and for large files, takes a lot of time. Box shared links allows for password-controls, expiration dates and restricted access/download capabilities.


  • File Synchronization: Secure Sync automatically sync files between your desktop and online Box folders. You have access to everything, anywhere, on any device.

  • Security Policy: flag confidential data, create policies to track abnormal downloads, get alerts to risks of data loss. You can secure data from individuals to unwanted domains.


  • Workflow Management: moving data from one folder to another, automatically publishing approved information to individuals or groups, can all be done via Box.
