Box Named a Leader in the Gartner Magic Quadrant for Content Collaboration Platforms

Box, Inc. (NYSE:BOX), a leader in cloud content management, today
announced that it has been named a Leader in the Gartner Magic Quadrant
for Content Collaboration Platforms for the fifth consecutive year. Box
was evaluated as one of 14 vendors in the market and was positioned the
furthest for completeness of vision.

“In this once-in-a-lifetime move to the cloud, every business is seeing
a shift to meet the demands of digital transformation. With this
transition, enterprises recognize the need to modernize and create a
digital workplace, collaborate internally and with partners, drive
agility and innovation, and secure their most critical information in
one unified cloud platform,” said Jeetu Patel, Chief Product Officer for
Box. “We’re proud that our leadership is showcased in this Magic
Quadrant and demonstrates that Box is uniquely positioned to serve the
largest and most regulated organizations by enabling best-of-breed
productivity across a modern IT stack and eliminating content silos.”

For Gartner’s Magic Quadrants, vendors within a specific market segment
are measured on their completeness of vision and their ability to
execute. The 2018 report states that, “in pursuit of digital workplace
and digital transformation initiatives, organizations want to promote
new work styles, approaches and paradigms – and increasingly optimize
business processes. CCPs connect and empower people, enabling new
productivity, collaboration and efficiency.” We believe this research
recognizes Box’s key strength as successful customer adoption of its
core productivity and collaboration capabilities and content services.

Box makes it easy for more than 85,000 organizations around the world
and 69 percent of the Fortune 500 to power their digital workplaces,
removing barriers for employees to share, access and collaborate
securely on their most critical content. As a result, Box is
consistently named a leader across the industry analyst community. Box
has also been named a leader in a variety of respected analyst reports,
