New Plans Make It Easier Than Ever for Businesses to Move Their Content to the Cloud
LOS ALTOS, CA – Aug 21, 2013 — /BackupReview.info/ — Box today announced that it is doubling its Personal offering to include 10GB of free storage and launching an all-new Starter plan tailored to small businesses that offers 100GB for $5/user. Building on Box’s success in the enterprise with major customers such as Discovery Communications, Procter & Gamble, and AutoTrader Group, the new plans make it easier than ever for businesses of all sizes to move their content to the cloud.
“We’re focused on removing any and all barriers to cloud adoption,” said Aaron Levie, co-founder and CEO, Box. “More than ever before, the economy today is driven by information and collaboration. Whether you’re a global corporation, a small business, or a freelancer, the key to competing is being able to securely share, manage and access your content anywhere, on any device. These new plans make the cloud more accessible than ever before.”
Today, more than 20 million individuals and 180,000 businesses use Box to share and manage their content in the cloud, with Box users at 97 percent of the Fortune 500. Box pioneered freemium cloud adoption in the enterprise with its Personal plan introduced in 2006. Since then, its ease of use has fueled adoption at businesses globally. Box grew sales more than 150 percent in its most recent fiscal year (FY2013) and is on pace to more than double sales again in the current year (FY2014). The company was also recently named a leader by both Forrester Research (“The Forrester Wave™: File Sync and Share Platforms, Q3 2013.”1) and Gartner, Inc. (“MarketScope for Enterprise File Synchronization and Sharing”2) for file sync and sharing.
