Another part of this announcement is Box for EMM, a version of the Box app designed to be deployed via mobile management solutions from vendors like VMware's AirWatch, Dell, MaaS360 by Fiberlink and MobileIron. This specialized version supports EMM (Enterprise Mobility Management) controls for sending data between apps and remote wiping of sensitive data.
Before, Bouck said, Box had an individual app for each environment, meaning that any app updates and any new EMM players entering the market required a lot of work on the backend. Now, one codebase means rapid iteration and rapid adoption of new technologies.
"It's a bit of a re-architecture," Bouck said.
