The hybrid workforce, geopolitical environment, and global regulatory landscape have reshaped the way organizations approach compliance. According to Gartner, more than 60 jurisdictions around the world have enacted or proposed postmodern privacy and data protection laws making the regulatory landscape very complicated. At Box, securing our customers’ content is our top priority and we are excited to announce that we will be expanding Box Zones by adding an additional Zone location in France.
Box Zones can help support your organization’s data residency needs by allowing you to store your content in the geographic region of your choice. Now French Zones customers can store content in-country with storage locations in Paris and Marseille while customer file upload, download, and encryption actions remain within the European Union. Box is focused on expanding to more regions across the world to help our customers accelerate digital transformation while raising the bar for privacy, trust, and control in the Content Cloud.
Today, we have Zones in Australia, Canada, France, Germany, Japan, US, and the UK with secondary storage location options in Singapore and Ireland. For more information on Box Zones visit our website.
