Introduces Advanced Reporting, New Enterprise Security Partnerships, Joins Cloud Security Alliance
PALO ALTO, CA, Feb 27, 2012 –/BackupReview.info/– Box today announced new enhancements to its security reporting tools and introduced a network of new security partners including HP, Enterproid and Good Technology that deliver advanced data protection capabilities across the entire fabric of the enterprise. Additionally, Box has joined the Cloud Security Alliance to create best practices for secure collaboration in the cloud. Today’s product and partner updates make business collaboration incredibly secure without sacrificing the flexibility and freedom that workers require for achieving success.
“Effective CIOs have embraced a decentralized, device-agnostic, user-first approach to empowering their workplace,” said Aaron Levie, CEO of Box. “At Box, we’re building our service and partnering with enterprise leaders to remove the barriers of aging security policies that stifle innovation and productivity. Today’s business professionals have built a proven model for where, when and how they work and it’s imperative we provide them with the right balance of services and safeguards that allow effortless collaboration.”
Forrester1 reports 60 percent of information workers’ PC and mobile devices are used for both personal and business purposes and that 33 percent of these devices are non-Microsoft PCs or mobile devices. Additionally, Gartner predicts2 that at least 50 percent of enterprise email users will rely primarily on a browser, tablet or mobile client instead of a desktop client.
Box’s new security features and strategic partners provide professionals with a unified collaboration experience regardless of device, location or application. Together, Box and its partners provide more than 82% of the Fortune 500 and 100,000 businesses, including AAA, Amylin Pharmaceuticals, Enterasys Networks, a Siemens Enterprise Communications Company, P&G, McAfee and Red Bull, with better visibility, manageability and control over data and devices without any impact to productivity.
“We chose to move to the cloud to give us the flexibility and agility to respond to changes facing our business and to provide a simple way to store, share and access information on any device,” said Craig Butler, CIO at AAA. “With the sensitive information we work with everyday, it was critical to implement a cloud solution that allowed us to set IT policies and procedures around how business information is being shared and accessed at AAA. Box provides us with the layer of security and the administrative control necessary for secure collaboration, but with the flexibility needed to promote innovation across the organization.”
Box Advanced Security Reports – Better Enterprise Visibility
Box is also introducing new security partnerships that extend deep security integrations with leaders across the industry. These integrations help to ensure that collaboration across teams is secure outside the firewall while working from any Android or iOS device as well as when sharing data from within the corporate firewall.
