The file storage service Box.com you don’t want to be left behind watching how Dropbox, MEGA, Sync, MediaFire and other giants are taking over this category.
They comment on their blog that they have already achieved alliances with large telecommunications companies from various parts of the planet, highlighting their associations in Japan, Australia, Europe and Latin America, with names such as Telefnica, Itochu Technology Ventures, Macnica, Mitsui and Telstra.
They have raised an additional $ 100 million to invest in projects related to their expansion in these markets. Box is currently in 13 different languages and 40% of the activity is carried out outside the United States, numbers that will surely increase in the coming months.
