A Review Of Box.com

Box.com (formerly Box.net) was created in order to help people share their files without the hassles that normally come with doing so. With the way that technology has evolved, the systems to share files that now exist are too complicated to use, or they don’t have the ability to adequately support a real collaboration. This is why the creators of Box.net got together in an effort to make this problem a thing of the past.


Box.com consolidates all of your files online and does so in a single location. The way to organize the files that you want included seems to be a bit on the easier side as compared to many of their competitors. You can share your files with anyone you want from anywhere in the world and you can even use many of the most popular mobile devices to access and share your files.

This is the perfect solution for those who have to collaborate with many people across the globe and need to do so while on the move at times. A nice feature with Box.com is that you can start off with some files and then add more files as you go along.

All of this file sharing is done securely as Box.com uses 256-bit encryption and makes you set up password permission for those who wish to access your files. In this way, even if some of your files do get stolen, the thieves are left with nothing that is of any value to them as they will only have a bunch of random characters and numbers. Only those who have granted access can unscramble the mess and view the true nature of the files.

Depending on how many files you want to upload, Box.net can represent a true bargain for you as well. You can upload up to 5 GB of files, with a 1 GB files size limit, for no change as long as you register with them. If that is not enough, you can pay from only $15.00 per month and you will get much more space and a lot more features including:

•    Password Protect
•    Faster Uploads
•    Enhanced Collaboration
•    Advance Admin and Security Features

Box.com boasts some very heavy hitters as users including MTV, Oracle, Marriot, T-Mobile, Dell, PBS, and more. There is a section on their website where you can even view their actual case studies. By reading through some of them, you can get a good idea of how their services are for some major corporations.

The company has a toll free number and a dedicated staff of customer service representatives who are on stand bye to assist you with any questions or inquiries you may have. You can even fill out a short form online and they will call you if you so desire.

Box.com also allows you to try their services free for 14 days to see if you like what they have to offer. That gives you plenty of time to check out all the bells and whistles and then decide if you want to continue using them or not.

    Box is overpriced, overrated to be honest. Great review and it is certainly better than some of the consumer-centric porgrams like YouSendIt and Dropbox that are limited and insecure + cause IT people like me a MASSIVE headache. I’m considering SmartFile b/c of their custom branding, security, unlimited links and I think they will actually merge your other file sharing accounts like Dropbox with theirs. Def. doing the free trial first before I pitch this to IT Dept. http://www.smartfile.com/trial/

    nice article jason..,
    today is the need of time to merge all different clients into single platform and this is done in several ways…, like in the case of social networking sites it is done by instant managers for chatting.
    the box.com is the similar concepts of bringing together different brands into a single platform, which seems very fine..
    nice article! thanks. :)

    Multi-platform should be TRUE multiplatform. Where’s the Linux love???? Very frustrating that this has not been addressed by Box; I should know, I’m a user. Also missing: selective synchronization, so I’m not sharing my entire Box with work machines. They did just release a beta version that includes this, but it’s not working very well and there are a lot of problems with it.
