Box for Business

Updated May 31, 2014

Bottom line

Box for Business offers more than just storage by making sharing and editing files easy for small businesses. The service lets you edit and easily share documents on desktop or mobile devices and will automatically save changes in the cloud, even if they're made on a hard drive. While there's no free storage, at $15 per user per month for 1 TB, their prices aren't unreasonable.

Ease of use

A leader in cloud business storage. Founded in 2005, Box is one of the more established and well-known cloud storage service providers; its clients include over 95 percent of Fortune 500 companies. The company carved out its niche in the enterprise market, and its tiered and tailored plans are a boon to small businesses, reviewers say. Box for Business offers a multitude of features, apps and ample storage -- its breadth and depth are both the service's strength and weakness. Box is more about collaboration than storage, allowing small businesses to work on documents together in the cloud or on their computers. As a result, the service offers much more than just storage and is slightly more complex than competitors such as Dropbox for Business (Est. $15 per user per month with a minimum of five users; unlimited storage) or Microsoft OneDrive for Business (Est. $2.50 per user per month for 25 GB per user; 20 cents for each additional GB).
