Empower your employees to collaborate on the go with Databox — Datacom's cloud file sharing platform. Remove the risk of exposing sensitive corporate data by third-party interception. Databox is an enterprise-grade tool that shares files through an encrypted, locally hosted private cloud.

Databox is available in New Zealand and Australia and can share documents to a range of devices. It lets you access, share, and revoke access to information anywhere at any time.

Databox stores, backs up, and synchronises all your files, and makes sure everyone has access to the most up-to-date version of any document. Its one-click sharing capability saves you from ever having to email attachments again.
