Box is an online file-sharing, storage and collaboration service provider that caters to individual users as well as businesses.

Box is a privately held company based in Los Altos, California. CEO Aaron Levie and CFO Dylan Smith founded Box, formerly known as Box.net, in 2005 as a file-sharing and storage platform for consumers. Over time, Box added more enterprise features, including Active Directory management and integration with Salesforce.com, Microsoft Office and other popular business applications. As such, Box not only competes against online file-sharing service providers such as Dropbox, but also against enterprise collaboration and content management platforms such as Microsoft SharePoint.
