What is Box?

Box is a storage service that will enable Case Western Reserve University to store, access and share files securely. Because Box is hosted in the cloud, it can be reached anywhere, anytime and from different kinds of devices. It is not a file server under a desk or a flash drive that you carry; in fact, it can replace that server or flash drive. It also can be used to store restricted, confidential data, such as financial information. Box is the only approved platform for storing restricted data in the cloud at Case Western Reserve. 

Note: Restricted data in Box should only be accessed through the web interface. Examples of Restricted Data

Use Box to:

  • Store data securely
  • Share folders and files
  • Edit content
  • Collaborate with others
