Box has announced several updates to its platform, including faster upload speeds and expanded cloud coverage into new regions.
Firstly, Box has expanded the Box Zones storage options to include Canada and Australia, allowing customers to choose to store data in these regions in Amazon Web Services or IBM clouds.
This adds to the ability to store data in the US, Germany, Ireland, Japan and Singapore.
Secondly, Box has updated the firm's Accelerator technology designed to ensure that content is uploaded to Box services as quickly as possible and to cover 60 global locations.
Box claimed that average upload speeds are now five times faster in Japan, four times faster in Australia and three times faster in the UK.
Finally, Box has achieved compliance with the ISO 27018 standard, which covers the protection of personally identifiable information in the cloud
Box explained that achieving this certification will ensure that businesses can trust storing such sensitive data with Box.
Aaron Levie, CEO of Box, said the updates are designed to maintain the company's commitment to giving customers the services they need to thrive in the cloud.
“As business becomes more global and connected, our goal is to ensure that secure collaboration with co-workers, partners and customers across boundaries is as seamless and fast as possible,” he added.
“In fewer than three months, we’ve added two new locations to Box Zones and delivered a faster, more reliable experience to our customers with the new Box Accelerator.
"As regulations and compliance become more complex, we’re focused on making it simple for our customers to do epic work and accelerate growth across the globe.”
The updates come at a busy time for Box. The company recently announced the Box Shuttle service designed to help organisations more easily handle a migration to the cloud, and secured Western Union as a major global customer.
