Google Drive is a bit slower for sending and receiving files. Box helps sending links for files directly once you share it with team members.
Box is good for user interaction for files sharing. And helps users to quickly download files for internal review. I like using Box for managing files sharing.

They are kind of the same. And both of them do their job as promised. But for company and project wise I think that Box slightly wins for some points. Which [makes him] win over Google Drive (don't forget that Google Drive is very easy to use and has a lot [of] nice features too).

Google Drive also helps with uploading files. But Google Drive is not an application for file management like Box. Box is quicker than Drive. Drive is good for managing backups and keeping project data. But for communication of files with outside your team, Box is better. Box interface for uploading files is easy and better as well.

The first benefit of using Box that comes to my mind is the cost advantage. Box is generally more affordable and easy-to-use than Dropbox Business because it eliminates the cost of hardware and maintenance which translates into significant cost savings. Box team maintains, manages and supports the solution freeing up employees who would otherwise cover the tasks of keeping servers up and running.

Most of these cloud storage platforms have a simple interface and provide a feature of drag and drop to easily upload a file to the online drive with little or no expert knowledge. However, Box goes a step further to store data across redundant servers so that even if one of the data centers collapses, our data is still managed by the other data centers, and it's entirely impossible to lose data.

The first reason that makes Box worth considering is the ability to ensure each authorized network participant can access the stored files. Another key advantage of using Box is that essentially all organization files and backups can be stored on the Box server and with the right directories and folders so that every user has a better overview of the entire file inventory

Among many other solutions box has been vetted by our security professionals and deemed to be the best solution for our particular organization. This lends to many of box's security features that still allow for collaboration and secure file sharing.

Neither pCloud nor Sync.com comes with unlimited storage, even though they are cheaper than Box. They also do not match most of Box's business features like custom branding and data loss protection.

Our university previously used a private VPN, and we've used Google Drive as well before. At a previous university, I had experience with Dropbox. While I was unhappy about the switch to Box at first (change is always hard), Box seems superior in ease of use and collaboration abilities.

Box has cheap storage pricing and so is preferred by small organizations, and easy to use app and sync make it a good product to use.
Cross platform file sharing and editing over the cloud is one of the best features it has.

It gives different bands to give access to others to see documents which [helps] us to maintain confidential information easily and do what need. The best alternative to other cloud storage because of uploading and sharing the document.

For us switching to Box [was] a big move. It saves us from big problems and troubles which we were already facing while using the other software. Those use a lot of effort and have zero results in terms of results. Box has been a great find for us.

Compared to all the listed alternatives I would give Box a good rating, because regardless of all the things normally associated with data, Box is always protecting all types of data with great efficiency and full responsibility.

We have definitely come a long way to finally reach Box. It is undoubtedly a powerful and secure tool that is embedded with many modern features. Moreover, we wanted a platform that has more features and involves less cost. Altogether, it successfully stored many problems regarding document management in our company as well.

I prefer Box over all of these alternatives because I find Box to be a lot more user-friendly and intuitive. Box has a lot more integrations as compared to the previous alternatives I used in my company. Moreover, this tool has led to an improvement in risk mitigation because with every VPN you have this platform due to which you don’t need to stress over any privacy issues.

Simply put, having unlimited file storage is a clear differentiator. Furthermore, the number of integrations offered by Box is simply unmatched. If you are looking for pure document and file sharing, I don't think there is a better product on the market. The benefits from collaboration alone should pay for the product.

This platform was a recent selection but before switching to Box we used Hiver, MS SharePoint, Dropbox, and Asana. We moved to Box because of many reasons like cost factors, usability factors, support team rating, and much more. With my prior experience, all of these factors were not meeting my criteria so that is why I moved to Box and I must say it is the best decision ever.

Box and its competitors are all quite similar in their filesharing and storing capabilities. I think the closest, most similar product would be OneDrive, which I use quite often. Google Drive provides a bit more of real-time updating and version control of documentation that I think Box could benefit from, as opposed to constantly uploading new files to replace.

Box works just as well as, if not better than Google Drive and Google Keep.

Box Notes is much easier to use than OneNote. OneNote is great if you just need to make your own notes - but sharing notes in OneNote is a pain. Box Notes is SO easy to use - we use it to take notes in all our meetings, being able to collaborate on notes has been a gamechanger for my team.
