Deploy Data Retention

Businesses often struggle with what data must be kept for litigation and regulatory purposes, as well as deciding what information can be destroyed so it doesn't end up becoming an issue later. With data retention capabilities, Box enables you to meet legal, regulatory and business mandates around the retention of your business content.

  • Retain Documents Easily implement automated policies to preserve business critical documents for any specified time period to comply with legal and regulatory mandates such as FINRA 17a-4, PCI, SOX and HIPAA.
  • Decrease Potential Liabilities Reduce your business risk by only keeping the documents you are required to save using Retention Management and automatically delete all else.
  • Reduce Information Silos Box can be the single system through which employees can create and collaborate on documents, reducing information sprawl and giving admins a centralized way to set policies for automatic expiration, archival or deletion of content.
