Box Data Room

Year Founded: 2005
Headquarters: Redwood, CA, USA

Box overview

Box is a cloud file sharing and document management platform. Founded in 2005 in San Francisco, California, the company was originally consumer-oriented, but gradually turned into a professional solution for corporations, government agencies, NGOs, and the SMB sector.

This pivot into the data room sphere saw Box expand into new countries and continents, acquiring a slew of other tech products in the process. Notably, in 2021 Box acquired SignRequest, an e-signature solution, in a $55 million bid.

Box went public as Box Inc in 2015. With offices in New York, San Francisco, Chicago, and Austin — as well as in Germany, the UK, Japan, and other countries, — Box stakes a firm hold in the data room market. As a data room provider, Box also continues to cater to individual needs as well. While it does not offer a free trial for its business subscriptions, it does have a free subscription plan for individual needs.

box-provided software solutions

Box has consistently worked to increase the scope of technologies offered. On top of its virtual data room, countless integrations with products like Microsoft Office and Google Workspace, and an API to integrate the Box VDR with virtually any product, the platform also offers its own virtual data room software solutions, such as:

  • Box KeySafe. This encryption manager helps you safely store your encryption keys and keep track of their usage, allowing early detection of leaks or suspicious user activity.
  • Box Canvas. Still in beta mode, this is a whiteboard business tool for better presentations, training, brainstorming sessions, or creating a business plan.
  • Box Sign. This convenient solution allows you to request and send out document signatures using Box Sign, Box’s native e-signature solution.
