Box Launches New UK Zone Ahead of Brexit, Expanding Box Zones Offering

UK Zone enables organisations to address data residency and privacy
concerns through primary and secondary datacentres in the UK

LONDON–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Box, Inc. (NYSE: BOX), a leader in cloud content management, today
announced the launch of a new UK in-country zone which will enable
organisations to keep their content completely and securely in the
United Kingdom. This new Box Zone has a primary datacentre in London and
secondary in Cardiff, expanding the global network of Box’s flagship Box
Zones offering to eight zones spread across the world. Now British
companies and multinational organisations operating in the UK will be
able to have more control over their data residency needs while ensuring
a seamless collaboration experience for their users.

“Businesses today face a complex and evolving regulatory landscape, none
more so than here in Britain,” said Chris Baker, Box Senior Vice
President and General Manager of EMEA. “With the Brexit decision pending
and the impact on regulation such as GDPR unknown, UK and European
businesses are searching for ways to guarantee business continuity. The
UK Zone will help companies to address data sovereignty concerns and
provide certainty around their content.”

Box Zones, introduced in 2016, gives enterprises the power to manage and
store data in the region of their choice without sacrificing
productivity. Today’s announcement provides Box customers with advanced
enterprise capabilities to flexibly address changing data protection
regulations. The UK Zone allows customers to keep encrypted,
at-rest-content in the UK, with in-country upload and download
processing delivering a superior end-user experience.

“At Virgin Trains, we are a digital first company with staff and offices
across the UK. We are committed to ensuring that those employees have
the information and tools to do their best work, even as compliance
requirements continue to rapidly change,” said John Sullivan, Chief
Information Officer at Virgin Trains. “The UK Zone will give us more
choice and control over our content. It is great to see Box’s continued
commitment to helping UK customers like Virgin Trains proactively
prepare our data residency strategy.”

The new UK Zone joins the growing list of Zones including Australia,
Canada, Germany, Ireland, Japan, Singapore and the United States.
Multizone support, announced in 2018, expands the ability to collaborate
seamlessly across any of Box’s eight Zones, all from a single Box
