The new integration will enable users to connect a Box folder of their choice within Webex messaging. Any content shared in the space will be securely added to the same Box folder. Additionally. Users will be able to access Webex as a Recommended App within Box and view Webex App Activity in Box Preview.
Commenting on the partnership, Jeetu Patel, Senior Vice President and General Manager of Security and Collaboration at Cisco said, “We’re focused on helping people achieve more delightful, immersive, and inclusive work experiences whether they are seated across the table or across the screen from their teammates. As more organizations move to hybrid modes of working, we want to make the experience of working together 10X better with Webex. Expanding our partnership and integration with Box is critical to this experience, and delivering on our promise to integrate with applications our customers use the most.”
The announcement also builds on Webex and Box’s already seamless partnership, enabling users to securely access and share Box content as they collaborate within Webex. Teams can work together in real-time, even when not together physically together in one office and can effectively collaborate with fewer pain points.
Additionally, the Box for Cisco Webex integration already offers Box functionality within the Webex App so that users can securely share, preview, and open Box files all within Webex.
“We are thrilled to expand our partnership with Cisco as we continue to advance secure work in the Content Cloud. Going deeper with Webex helps employees seamlessly collaborate internally and with customers and partners from anywhere and on any device. These new and enhanced integrations will make the Webex experience in Box even more secure and frictionless while ensuring a business’s content and communication doesn’t fall into the wrong hands.” said Aaron Levie, Co-Founder and Chief Executive Officer of Box.
