The Bottom Line
Box is a cloud based service and is a fantastic tool to securely share files and collaborate from any device. It's a tremendous workhorse in my digital tool box and a great time saver.
A Little Detail
- I use Box for almost all my file storage related to work because I can access the files from any device. No more logging into the network on a desktop or from home.
- While I like personal Dropbox, I need UM Box because it is easy to create and change settings to automatically restrict access to colleagues at UMHS or UM.
- Box maintains versions of files. I can upload versions and stack them (great for recovery).
- If you use Box to store ePHI files for research or patient care, make sure you have a very solid level-1 password.
