Box Edit: Virtually Awesome

By

We’ve been talking about Box Edit quite a bit over the last year. With the initial launch in October and the recent update in April, it’s one of our most popular features on Box. Over the last 9 months, we’ve seen over 3 million documents edited through Box Edit. That’s almost 11,000 documents a day, and more than 4 million new versions saved as people update and interact with their content.

With all that momentum, we’re constantly looking for ways to make the experience even better for individual users and IT administrators alike. To that end, we’re launching a few new enhancements today that make it easier for more businesses to deploy and use Box Edit.

First, IT departments can now systematically deploy Box Edit to every machine in an enterprise automatically, whether Windows, Mac, or through Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) and Server-Based Computing (SBC) environments. When combined with Box Edit’s auto-update capabilities, your users will always be running on the best and most recent version.

Second, Box Edit has been optimized for those VDI and SBC environments. For large enterprises using these solutions to manage and maintain corporate machines, this is the best and most network-efficient way to collaborate around content. The ability to access any document, on any device, open and edit it in your program of choice, and never lose a change is incredibly powerful. Additionally, Box Edit reduces the load on corporate networks as well as hosted infrastructure — instead of bringing down a fully synced document library, your only traffic is the document you’re working on right now.

We believe that Box Edit is the fastest, easiest way to work with your content in Box. Combined with the 500+ mobile applications in the Box OneCloud ecosystem, you can now access, edit, and create on any device, anywhere.
