Taps Amazon Web Services and IBM Cloud to give businesses across the globe choice and flexibility
LONDON, UK – April 12, 2016 — /BackupReview.info/ — Today at Box World Tour Europe, Box (NYSE:BOX) announced Box Zones to provide enterprises with the choice to store data regionally across Europe and Asia. Box Zones will help businesses centralize critical content and enhance productivity, while addressing local data storage requirements. By leveraging Amazon Web Services (AWS) and IBM Cloud, Box Zones will allow content in Box to be stored in Germany, Ireland, Singapore and Japan based on customer needs. Box Zones joins services like Box KeySafe and Box Governance as the latest way that Box provides customers with choice and flexibility in how they deploy Box.
“Businesses today are more connected, collaborative and global thanks to the power of the cloud,” said Aaron Levie, co-founder and CEO of Box. “Yet for many companies, local laws and regulations have forced them to make technology tradeoffs that limit their success and place a drag on employee productivity and collaboration. Box Zones will help power digital transformation for enterprise customers across Europe and Asia and accelerate our international presence.”
Today, more than 57,000 businesses, including 59% of the Fortune 500 rely on Box for secure content management and collaboration. Multi-national businesses like Amadeus, AstraZeneca, Eli Lilly, General Electric, P&G and Schneider Electric have teams spanning the globe that require secure international collaboration to be successful.
“At Royal HaskoningDHV, we have more than 6,500 employees around the world and Box Zones addresses many of the major challenges that we face,” said Roland Daane, Corporate Information Manager, Royal HaskoningDHV. “With this news, we’re thrilled that Box is giving us even more choice around how we control and secure our content. This lets us focus on our goal of combining global expertise with local knowledge to deliver a multidisciplinary range of consultancy services in over 150 countries.”
Box Zones will support the needs of customers that require regional content storage without sacrificing any of Box’s modern collaboration features like document watermarking, granular permission controls, commenting and tasks, wide-ranging file preview, as well as deep integrations with the tools businesses use the most, like Office 365 and Salesforce.
“Security is the top priority for AWS and our customers. With the recent launch of Box KeySafe running on AWS, Box offers companies of all sizes greater control over their business-critical, sensitive content, and furthers that mission with today’s introduction of Box Zones,” said Terry Wise, Vice President of Worldwide Partner Ecosystem, Amazon Web Services, Inc. “We believe customers should have the freedom to choose where and how their data is stored. With Box Zones leveraging Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3), customers can better meet the highest levels of security and regulatory compliance required in their respective geographies.”
“As enterprises turn to cloud as an innovation platform, data is at the center,” said Robert LeBlanc, senior vice president, IBM Cloud. “Box Zones on the IBM Cloud, with new technology from the recent acquisition of Cleversafe, will provide a platform for clients who prefer to store data in country for performance, security or other advantages. We look forward to expanding our partnership with Box and helping serve clients in Europe and Asia through our network of IBM Cloud Data Centers.”
