Pricing and Cost Advice
"The pricing of this solution is better than Dropbox.""I believe Box is cheaper than SharePoint.""They are very price competitive when pushed.

The Box price was pretty much equal to or lower than the Citrix price, and Box has more features.""There's a free version that allows you to use it with almost full-feature access. Even in the free version, it gives you all you need."

Overview
Box is a Modern Content Management Platform for companies of all sizes and industries. The difference that Box brings is that it offers the security and controls admins need with the sharing and collaboration capabilities end users want. Since 2005, Box has made it easier for people to securely share ideas, collaborate and get work done faster. Today, more than 43 million users and 62,000 businesses--including 59% of the Fortune 500--trust Box to manage content in the cloud. The Box platform provides HIPAA, FINRA, FedRAMP, and many other compliances to go with granular access permissions and advanced security capabilities. By using Box you can sync, share, and collaborate on all types of files, anywhere, on any device - but that's just the beginning. You can choose where to store your data, to manage your own encryption keys, and set workflows to automate content-based processes. You can also assign custom metadata tags to content, watermark sensitive content, and set file retention or legal hold policies. Box has deep, native integrations with Microsoft Office and Outlook, Google Apps for Work, Salesforce, Netsuite, Docusign, Adobe, and many other best-of-breed solutions you may already be using.
SpiderOak is a cloud-based data storage center where users can securely retrieve files from any device. The service is designed to keep data private while letting it be opened and synced across multiple computers and mobile devices. Its zero-knowledge policy assures the user that the information cannot be attained by unauthorized users, not even SpiderOak staff. SpiderOak cloud services are automatically backed up so changes and edits are immediately saved. Changes made to data can be synced in full or in part and can be shared with other users through SpiderOak, using their password protected ShareRooms. Users have the advantage of accessing data from any device within the SpiderOak network either by phone, tablet, or web browser. Lastly, data can be stored with SpiderOak from multiple operating systems _ Mac, Windows, and Linux _ in addition to storing data from external hard drives. The privacy guaranteed by SpiderOak means no one, even with server access, can read file or folder names. Unlike encryption keys stored with customer data, SpiderOak's passwords cannot be decrypted or recovered; no information about a user's unique encryption key is kept on file. SpiderOak has been used by numerous businesses for cloud secure data. A large multi-national organization used the cloud service to backup millions of desktops, including those with limited online connectivity. SpiderOak helped the organization maintain access to local files, work within local compliance requirements, and control potential data leaks.
