Back Up Your Files Securely with UBbox

Published April 25, 2017

The end of the semester is an ideal time to back up your work. When you save to UBbox, your files are instantly backed up, encrypted and available anywhere.

UBbox is designed to add simple convenience and security, while complementing the way you already work:

  • Keep files safe from hardware failure or security breaches
  • Share files with anyone—regardless whether they work at UB—by sending a link or granting permissions
  • Collaborate in real time using MS Office Online and G-Suite files (Google docs/sheets) in Box
  • Use the Box Sync app to automatically save local files to the cloud, or simply drag and drop

Coming Soon: a Safe Place for Sensitive Data

In the coming months, UBbox will have features in place to protect UB HIPAA-protected and Category 1 data, but please refrain from saving this information in Box at this time.
