Government Digital Service (GDS), the digital arm of the British government, has selected Box for content sharing and collaboration across government departments.
Mark Fisher, the Cabinet Office’s Senior Information Risk Owner (SIRO), has approved Box for sharing information at official level both internally and externally.
David Quantrell, Box senior vice president and general manager of EMEA, said: “The GDS is a pioneer in deploying innovative technology and as it expands its collaboration portfolio it is encouraging wider cross-government cooperation.”
Box is already available for British government departments through G-Cloud Digital Marketplace, and in the US, the company has announced that the US Department of Justice has selected Box to enable enterprise file sharing. More than 34 million users and 45,000 organizations use Box to share and their content.
