“The rise of cloud, mobile technologies is having a profound effect on how companies structure and manage information,” said Wayne Cook, VP of Channel and Alliances, EMEA. “This shift requires new strategies and a new mindset, which our partners across Europe are embracing with Box. We’ve sought out relationships with leading companies who share our vision, and have built a robust, far-reaching partner ecosystem in the process.”

  • Pan-EMEA: Capgemini
  • UK: Bytes, Softcat, Insight and Methods
  • France: KERNEL Networks, Econocom, Specialist Computer Centres, Niji and Ei Technologies
  • Germany: Bechtle-Comsoft, CANCOM, Deutsche Telekom and SoftwareOne

Box provides simple and secure content sharing and collaboration from any device. The company has more than 25 million users worldwide at more than 225,000 businesses, including 99 percent of the Fortune 500. Box has been named a leader by both Forrester Research ("The Forrester Wave™: File Sync and Share Platforms, Q3 2013."1) and Gartner, Inc. ("MarketScope for Enterprise File Synchronization and Sharing"2) for file sync and sharing.
