Box Pros

Robert Nevans - PeerSpot reviewer
CEO at CSToday
We've never had a penetration. We've never had a security issue that their support didn't solve. We love their audit trail. We can know exactly when a collaborator opens. We love how you can define a collaborator.

Governance and ease of use are why I think a lot of people like Box, including ourselves. Basically, we're concerned about what information is being sent to Box, so we use a lot of the Box governance features to make sure that what is being sent to Box is appropriate. If it is not appropriate, it is not allowed to be sent. It is also pretty easy to use. It is the easiest to use for customers and for technologists.

Box Cons

Robert Nevans - PeerSpot reviewer
CEO at CSToday
I recommend doing the trial first, because it's not cheap ware. It's not overly expensive, but it's not cheap ware, and enterprise has a minimum number of users.

MW
CEO / PM / Systems Engineer at a tech services company with 1-10 employees
I haven't really come across a case where we're not able to use it for what it is, so I don't really have anything holding us up or any customers holding us up at this point that I know of. There are always some limitations, but as a technologist, I just live with them, and there is always room for improvement, but I don't have anything quantifiable.

One thing that Box would benefit from is a records management component.

The UI should be faster. Sometimes it lags when switching between documents.

If there was a plugin that added some sort of toolbar in Office, that would be great.

With OneDrive, you can continuously save your files over a Box folder. That is something I wish we could have.

The room for improvement is in the area of integrations. They need to establish more integrations, especially with Office 365 and Outlook.

I don't like the low level of role-based security it provides – it's very cumbersome, and the support is ordinary at times.

If you want to delete something in Box, you have to do it manually, one by one. That was my recent experience. They might have a bulk delete, but I could not find that option. If you want to delete something, you have to go to each and every file and delete it.
