Enterprise-grade security

Databox protects your data by 448-bit encryption and backs it up to the private cloud. Your IT team can remotely wipe files if an employee's device is compromised. You can check that only authorised users are accessing data using audit logs.

BYOD (bring your own device) flexibility

Sync data to authorised devices so employees can share files from anywhere, at any time. You can use Databox on Android, iOS, Mac OS, and Windows.

Improved productivity

Your workforce can utilise file-sharing notifications and restore previous versions of documents quickly and easily. Staff can also revoke document links to prevent sharing.

Local hosting

We store all data in Australia or New Zealand, so you can be confident that your data remains in the location you choose.

Admin control

A high level of administrative control lets you manage what users can sync and share, as well as revoke access to the system when users leave.
