Box Zones enables organizations to address data residency obligations across multiple geographies, allowing them to raise the bar for privacy and control in the cloud — whether they have employees, customers, or partners across 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 with users in Europe, Asia, Canada or Australia can use local data storage to store files in-region. This helps address regional and country-specific data privacy concerns, customer data residency concerns (including concerns about Brexit) and other requirements to store files in-region.
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.
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 General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)
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.
