It’s always nice to see two companies come together in a partnership that will benefit their customers (even if the end goal is for both companies to make a lot more money). In this case, I’m talking about two companies that work in the world of enterprise document management, security, and sharing: CapLinked and Box.< CapLinked is one of the most popular cloud-based services for enterprises that need to share secure documents and files with third-parties. They provide tools that make complicated and confidential business transactions that require collaboration, easy to complete in the cloud. Box offers cloud-based document management, storage, and security. The folks at CapLinked were aware that enterprises often integrated the two tools into their workflow. According to a blog post:
“Enterprises typically implemented Box to easily manage and share files internally and interdepartmentally, while turning to CapLinked for special situations involving sharing data with third parties outside of the organization–such as licensing, audits, business development, financing, and corp dev.”
Since the two services compliment each other in a lot of ways, CapLinked decided to make it official by joining the Box Platform Partners Program. Companies who already use Box for file storage and internal collaboration can also benefit from CapLinked’s ability to provide robust access controls and tools for special document tracking and reporting, permission detail, and advanced document security features.
Both Box and CapLinked have been scaling over the last couple years, so this partnership seems like a natural and beneficial step for both companies. In 2014, Box acquired Streem, a Y-Combinator backed startup that allows customers to stream files to their desktop environments. And just a couple months ago CapLinked closed a $3.5 million funding round from investors including PayPal cofounder Peter Thiel (CapLinked co-founder Eric M. Jackson was PayPal’s first head of US marketing).
