Remote work has become the way of life for many businesses and they are relying on companies like Box and Cisco to power this new way of working. Box and Cisco provide the critical tools their customers need to connect, communicate, collaborate, and get work done from anywhere. Today, we're excited to announce a new Box for Webex Teams integration that makes remote work even easier.
With this new integration, teams can work together in real-time, even when they can't physically be together in one office. They can share and view Box content from within a Webex Teams space to enable more effective collaboration with fewer clicks and context switches. The integration offers the following features for end users:
- Share files from Box: Share your Box files with everyone in a space
- Update file sharing setting: Ensure the right users have right access to shared files within Webex Teams
- See file previews: See a preview thumbnail of shared files
- View Box files within Webex Teams: Open and view the full file in an embedded browser window
We know that security is more important than ever now that many teams are collaborating remotely. We recognize how critical it is to keep your content safe, so this integration has been built such that it makes Box content accessible and shareable from within Webex Teams without having to index the shared content in Webex Teams. The only metadata that is stored by Webex Teams is the file name and file type.
We're excited to bring you this new Box for Webex Teams integration to provide more ways for your remote workforces to collaborate more easily. We look forward to continuing our work with Cisco to enhance this integration so that we can continue to simplify teamwork across all our joint customers.
