The Thesis

Box was founded in 2005 as an enterprise content management platform that solves simple and complex file storage and sharing frustrations for businesses, teams, and individuals. Some of the products offered by the company includes but not limited to content governance, business migration to the cloud, and workplace management.

The Hook

  • Firstly, Box helps small, medium, and large organizations to govern their content.
  • Secondly, the company allows businesses, individuals, and teams to migrate to the cloud.
  • Lastly, the platform also helps businesses to boost their workplace using extensive features.

How to Govern Your Content

At the outset, Box launches a new age data protection product that helps businesses rethink how they govern their content. For example, the company lets businesses manage document retention and disposition policies, which works well for both large and medium enterprises.


Jamie Miller, chief financial officer, General Electric, testified, “Moving to a cloud technology like Box allows us to centralized all of our content and provides more efficiency, speed and simplicity for our employees.”

In addition, Box Governance enables organizations to conduct defensible discovery, which covers areas such as legal action from trademark issues, patent infringement, employee lawsuits, and so on. Further, businesses can also automate security classifications to restrict file sharing options, enforece content policies to better understand when inappropriate content is uploaded, and manage domain whitelists to determine which domains are safe for their teams, which is core in minimizing risk of data theft or leakage by employees and making sure confidential information is not accidentally shared with competitors.

How to Migrate Your Business

On another note, Box partners with small, medium, and large businesses during the process of their business migration to the cloud storage provided by the platform. For instance, businesses can manage the migration process by working with Box to create a personalized migration plan with key miletones, prioritize their content to identify content that’s mostly used by their users and teams.


Alan Boehme, global chief technical officer, The Coca-Cola Company, testified, “Moving to a cloud content platform like Box is critical to creating a more productive, connected and collaborative workforce that can focus on inspiring creativity, passion, optimism and fun.”

Furthermore, business owners can seamlessly add intelligence to their content, which helps in importing associated metadata and custom attributes. Another instance is that Box allows enterprises to track the progress of this migration with full visibility throughout the process.

How to Boost Your Workplace

Last of all, Box makes it easy for more than 60 percent of Fortune 500 companies to build and create a digital workplace that actually works. To illustrate, companies using the content management platform have the ability to easily manage their users and gain an absolute visibility into how and where work happens, which helps in keeping their information secure and all of their team members productive.


Tony McGivern, chief information officer, FICO, testified, “At FICO, we want to maximize our global talent and provide them with the tools to do their jobs better together, Box helped us connect the dots from region to region and from device to device.”

Adding to that, businesses have a total control of their content as they can manage the way their users and teams work with their content, which helps prevent data loss with individualized document watermarking, granular sharing permissions, and powerful content security controls.
