Box gets customer-managed key encryption

Box now allows customers to manage their own keys for data encrypted in the cloud.

Box competitors are quick to poke holes in the offering as well. Intralinks, which also has its own cloud-based enterprise collaboration offering, provides customers a key holder device directly. Customers who use Box's EKM partner with Amazon, who in turn partners with another company named SafeNet. Suddenly a key management solution from Box gives customers two new partners.
