The nature of team work is changing, and we are using more applications than ever before to help us get work done. We have a continual focus on building a central cloud content management platform where all of an organization's most important business information can be secured, managed and collaborated on in real time. We’re huge proponents of openness in the enterprise, and we're dedicated to providing a connected, unified experience where these best-of-breed apps and services simply work together.
That’s why Box builds integrations with thousands of applications that let you share, edit, manage, analyze and collaborate with all types of data. And today, we are excited to announce a new integration between Box and Microsoft Teams, the chat-based workspace in Microsoft Office 365.
Today there are billions of Microsoft Office files in Box - that's a lot of Word documents, Excel sheets and PowerPoint presentations! With this new integration, joint customers will now be able to access and share their content in Box from within Teams, creating one central hub for productivity and collaboration.
By bringing content from Box into Teams, organizations can share their files more easily and collaborate on projects in real-time, all while keeping their content securely managed in Box. With Box as the central cloud content management platform, admins can protect files wherever they go with robust security controls and reporting, customer-managed encryption, rights management, and mobile security. And end users can work closely with anyone inside or outside the organization and keep sensitive files secure with granular user permissions.
Today’s update extends the reach of Box’s powerful integrations with Office on desktop, on mobile and online and demonstrates our commitment to further interoperability, making it easy for teams to work on content from anywhere. We’re excited to continue to partner more closely with Microsoft to power the future of work.
