Box is a feature-rich cloud storage and collaboration platform. Box facilitates working on the same document among different users. Users can add comments, assign tasks, and quickly share their document with their colleagues.
Box offers various security features including data encryption, access control, 2-factor authentication. You can also access your Box account using an Android or iOS device. Another unique factor about Box is a solid integration with third-party productivity tools. Box supports integration with Microsoft Office, Google Docs, Salesforce and countless other services. You can also customize your account using account personalization features.
Benefits of Using Multiple Box Accounts
- Do you work with multiple clients or projects? If so, using multiple accounts for different purposes will help you keep your data separated.
- Do you often login in to your Box account on public computers? If so, it’s best to create a separate account for confidential data.
- Are you an avid Dropbox beta tester? Do you work with a tech magazine? Do you like testing new Dropbox features more often? If so, using a separate account for testing purposes will serve as a safe isolated environment. Your data on the other accounts will remain unaffected.
- If you have a large chunk of data, it makes sense to divide it into many accounts. For example, you may use the free Box plan to store smaller files and a premium plan to store large space-hogging files.
- Or, maybe, you prefer to store most frequently used files on one account, and other files on another account.
- It’s a common practice to store important data on multiple cloud accounts. If one account gets compromised, or the data gets deleted by mistake, the other account will act as a recovery account.
- In recent years, the Ransomware viruses have caused havoc across the world. Ransomware is infamously popular for encrypting critical business data in ransom for a huge sum of money. Keeping multiple copies of your critical business data across multiple cloud accounts can be a proven strategy to fight such data security threats.
