Box is a reliable and easy to use cloud storage and syncing solution. While it is mainly aimed at business users, it offers personal plans that support useful features to prevent data loss and get access to your files across different devices. We will focus on the personal service, which includes free and premium accounts.
The free personal service offers up to 10 GB, which is quite generous when compared to some competitor. That being said, it should be noted that there is a limit on the size of the files that can be uploaded. This means that the free solution is only suitable for documents and photos. In order to get up to 100GB of space and to be able to upload files up to 5GB, you will need to opt for a paid plan for $10 per month.
Box is a flexible solution that works well with other services and applications including Salesforce and Chatter. Although many of the options supported are more suitable for Business use, individuals can also find useful solutions to which Box offers integration. In terms of speed, Box stands out by offering a remarkably fast service. You can upload and download files at high speeds, which clearly shows the Business focus of the service. It is designed to facilitate collaboration and enhance productivity. Security is another advantage of Box as all the file transfers are encrypted using SSL and on the server side, 256-bit is provided.
