Box, a leading cloud storage provider, announced Box Drive app for Windows. Box Drive app connects your desktop and the cloud just like OneDrive. All your files stored in Box cloud will appear in Windows Explorer as regular files and you can stream them directly to your desktop whenever you need them. Files in Box Drive look and feel like that of a network shared drive but gives you added features like external collaboration, search and version control. That way, you have access to all of your content without filling your local storage.

With Box Drive, you have the same enterprise-grade security and compliance capabilities you do with Box, just on the desktop: HIPAA, FINRA, and FedRAMP compliance, Binding Corporate Rules, data retention policies, and more.
