Increasing adoption of Box, Inc.’s BOX cloud management platform by clients is reiterating strength and innovative nature of the product portfolio.
Recently, it announced that the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) has issued the company an Authority to Operate (ATO).
Therefore, Box’s cloud content management platform can now be used by VA to modernize the latter’s technical infrastructure, thereby promoting digital transformation.
In the current scenario, wherein it is preferable to stay at home, its cloud content management platform will help VA develop new ways to work in the cloud, thereby bringing in more safety and reliability.
VA, with the help of Box, can enable its staff, doctors, and veterans to securely share as well as manage critical healthcare processes.
In this regard, researchers can now share COVID-19 data sets with VA administration officials, allowing them to take appropriate decisions regarding the medical facilities. In addition, construction project managers can use the cloud platform to share AutoCAD building design files and project documents with their teams, while maintaining proper privacy.
This deal will further expand Box’s customer base. With the growing deployment of the platform, it will generate more revenues and the top line will gain momentum.
