Competitive Overview

Box Vs. Dropbox

Box Enterprise vs. Dropbox

DropBox and Box share some of the same functionality. However, Box is designed for enterprise-level solutions for large organizations while Dropbox is geared toward consumer use. Box offers features like content and task management, online workspace for collaboration, user and group permissions, admin account transfers, and a built-in editor. High level features, custom options for embedding files into a website, Google Apps integration, and administrative controls allow Box users to create and manage a complete work space environment.
