Box’s new service
BANGALORE: Cloud storage provider Box Inc unveiled a service that allows businesses in Europe and Asia to store data regionally, at a time when governments demand greater protection for their data in the backdrop of revelations about massive US surveillance programmes. Box Zones, to be available next month, uses the cloud services of Amazon.com Inc and International Business Machines Corp to store its customers’ data across Germany, Ireland, Singapore and Japan, Box said on Tuesday. The company, which serves about 57,000 customers, has witnessed rising demand for its current add-on services such as KeySafe and Governance.
