Box bolsters security credibility with customer-managed encryption key offering

“EKM puts Box a step ahead of some of its FSS and Saas peers in terms of mitigating security concerns as a barrier to broader enterprise adoption.  For companies that are highly security-sensitive or compliance-bound, having the ability to manage their own keys could help ease security concerns around the use of cloud-based FSS offerings, leading them to consider moving a greater portion of their corporate information to Box.”

The analysts do a nice job explaining how our EKM works at a high level under the Product section.  They also note that biggest strategic impact may be on the marketing side as this gives Box a clear differentiator among the cloud vendors (& FSS) for customers that are contemplating a move away from legacy on-premises content management like Microsoft SharePoint or EMC’s Documentum but have lingering security concerns about public cloud.
