Discover the Differences Between Box and FileCloud

FileCloud Enterprise Online Offers Robust ROI and a Feature-Rich Platform - a Secure Alternative to Box

Box and FileCloud Enterprise Online offer secure content management platform for businesses and enterprises. Both platforms are built for businesses and offer powerful features to securely manage your enterprise content. Box nickel and dimes its feature set to different pricing plans. Last time we checked it has 3 different pricing plans for business (Business, Business Plus and Enterprise) and 3 more pricing plans for Enterprises (Digital Workplace, Digital Workplace Global and Digital Business). Go figure!

Important security features like Box Governance, Keysafe, DLP and 3rd party integrations are only available on Enterprise suites which costs more than their business pricing. Compared to Box pricing, FileCloud Enterprise Online offers transparent pricing and superior ROI. With FileCloud as alternative for Box, all powerful security features are available in the package, so you don’t have to use any external integrations.

FileCloud also offers optional hybrid cloud capabilities which included features like file server backup/sync to the cloud and vice versa. Users can get low latency, fast access via LAN while they are at office and remote access from cloud when they are on road or work from home. With a massive variety of choices for data-center regions — US East, US West, EU, Australia and Hong Kong — we aim to meet all your needs, from data residency requirements to low latency access. Our files are protected securely through customer encryption keys, and all of our clients receive legendary support from professional engineers who will work with you to ensure your deployment is a huge success.
