Box Zones provides in-region data storage with Box, raising the bar for privacy and control in the cloud. Organizations can now keep their data close by — whether they're in Europe, Asia, Canada or Australia. With Box Zones, we're removing the barriers to cloud adoption so every business around the globe can work as one.
Box Zones builds on the strong data protection and privacy provided by Box, allowing companies to store their encrypted-at-rest content around the world. Now, organizations in Europe, Asia, Canada or Australia can use local data storage to address regional and some country-specific data privacy concerns, customer data residency concerns and requirements to store files in-region.
While Box continues to operate data centers in the U.S. Box Zones allows us to bring powerful collaboration and productivity to even more organizations around the world. With Box Zones, we deliver flexibility and choice for in-region storage at unparalleled reach and scale - all with the ease of use you expect from Box.
How it works
Box Zones provides data localization by separating all the powerful collaboration, productivity, and ease of use features of Box from the storage layer. In fact, where content is stored, while determined by the admin, is invisible to the end user. This allows end users to go on with their day without ever having to think about where their data needs to be stored. Box Zones is made possible by leveraging the global network of data centers of our partners.
Supporting the 2018 Global Data Protection Regulation
Box Zones is only one step we've taken to help companies adapt to a rapidly evolving global data privacy landscape. Our philosophy is to evaluate and meet the highest bars for data privacy globally, and help put organizations in a very good position toward meeting different data privacy obligations across jurisdictions.
