Securely deploy and manage collaborative content for your entire company


Box is a modern content management platform for companies of all sizes and industries. Box combines the security and control that administrators need along with the sharing and collaboration capabilities that your end users want. No more password reset problems, orphaned accounts, or issues syncing user profiles. Use Box to sync, share, and collaborate on all types of files - anywhere, at any time, and on any device.

You can choose where to store your data, manage your own encryption keys, and set workflows to automate content-based processes. You can also assign custom metadata tags to content, watermark your sensitive content, and set policies for file retention or legal holds. Today, more than 43 million users and 62,000 businesses - including 59% of the Fortune 500 - trust Box to manage their content in the cloud.

Box's partnership with Okta allows you to quickly deploy Box across your entire organization and greatly increase your end user adoption.
