Box and AWS partner on enterprise software platform

Box has announced Box Enterprise Key Management (EKM), a new security-focused enterprise software platform for content collaboration.

Developed in comparison with Amazon Web Services (AWS) and Gemalto, the solution increases control and security around enterprise content while retaining ease of use.

EKM aims to provide businesses with single-tenant control over their encryption keys and audit logs, providing a protected infrastructure through a dedicated AWS CloudHSM appliance in the cloud. Customers retain control of their keys while Amazon maintains the necessary hardware.

"Companies of every size are now deploying new applications and workloads to the cloud to increase agility, get to market more quickly, and to transform their customer experience," said Adam Selipsky, Vice President, Amazon Web Services, Inc.

"Security is a top priority for us and AWS Cloud infrastructure has been architected to be the most flexible and secure cloud computing environments available today."

"We’re excited to work with Box to use AWS CloudHSM to drive a new generation of business productivity and collaboration for organisations that require the highest levels of security and regulatory compliance."

"Industries like finance, government, legal and healthcare are facing a new set of challenges when it comes to establishing control over their content – and who can access it – without hindering collaboration and productivity," said Aaron Levie, co-founder and CEO, Box.

"With Box EKM, we’ve removed the final barrier to cloud adoption for industries that require the highest levels of protection over their information."
