Although Box is currently less popular than its main rival Dropbox, it is growing at a huge rate and is quickly gaining an excellent reputation. They are used by over 14,000 businesses including TaylorMade, MTV, Red Bull, LinkedIn and Direct TV. All these high profile businesses certainly add to the credibility of this cloud storage provider and demonstrate the great features and service they offer. Box prides itself on the security and customer service offered, although, it may lag behind in terms of storage space provided.
Unfortunately, this is the one area where Box falls short of its competitors. They do offer a completely free cloud storage space of 10GB with a 250MB file upload size limit which is excellent for backing up a small number of important files, however, the paid plans don’t provide a great deal of storage for the cost.
Paid plans for individuals only offer 100GB of cloud storage with a 2GB file upload limit. The upload process is also slightly annoying as they do not increment the backup meaning everything gets uploaded rather than just the changes causing the computer to slow down during the process. Business plans are available with 1000GB storage and the Enterprise plan advertises unlimited storage although there is a 5GB file upload limit.
The security offered by Box is absolutely first class. Files are encrypted before, during and after transfer using an SSL secure transfer which is one of the most secure in the business. The service also owns and maintains their own servers which is a rarity and allows for an extra level of security.Visit Box.com
