Box.com will provide secured cloud file storage and sharing for the UCSF Enterprise. It is intended to provide highly mobile users access to their data. Use Box to securely store, share, and collaborate on documents both internally and externally. Rather than using email to send attachment, you can use Box to send larger files and content blocked by Exchange. Box offers a user-friendly web interface and enterprise security. For mobile devices, you try the Box Mobile Client, available for iOS, Android, and other platforms. To sync Box files to your desktop, use Box Desktop Sync.
