US-based cloud content management company Box has integrated its storage service with Microsoft Outlook.

The partnership will allow users to access files stored in Box from an add-in on their Outlook email interface while helping them manage data stored in the cloud.

Specifically, Outlook users can select files from Box, set the right access permissions and then attach secure shared links within emails, allowing them to control the flow of information with and beyond their organisation.

Meanwhile, email recipients can also use the Box add-in for Outlook to save the content of entire emails and attached files directly to Box.

According to Box, the add-in works across multiple platforms, including Windows, Mac and web.

"The future of work will be defined by best-of-breed applications that work together to make it incredibly simple to streamline business processes, improve employee productivity, and reduced risk," said Jeetu Patel, chief product officer at Box.

“Together, Box and Microsoft not only help people be more productive by giving them access to their files stored in Box right from the Microsoft Outlook interface, but we also ensure that enterprises can centralise, manage, and secure their data in the cloud.”

Box has previously launched similar integrations with Office 365, which includes an integration with Office Online launched in 2015. Mike Ammerlaan, director of Microsoft Office 365 ecosystem, said the latest integration reflected Microsoft's commitment to interoperability with its ISV

Box has spent the last year ramping up its operations in Australia and New Zealand. Last March, it recruited former Pegasystems talent, Scott Leader, as its first regional A/NZ vice president.

Then in October, the company appointed Verity White as director of channel and strategic alliances in Australia, tapping her from Microsoft.

Locally, Box has offices in Sydney and Melbourne while outside of the US, the company also operates across the UK, France, Germany, Sweden, Netherlands, Canada and Japan.

Malwarebytes shoots the breeze with channel, prospects

A Kumeu, Auckland, winery was the venue for a Malwarebytes event for partner and prospect MSPs - with some straight shooting on the side. The half-day getaway, which featured an archery competition, lunch and wine-tasting aimed at bringing Malwarebytes' local New Zealand and top and prospective MSP partners together to celebrate recent local successes, and discuss the current state of malware in New Zealand. This was also a unique opportunity for local MSPs to learn about how they can get the most out of Malwarebytes' MSP program and offering, as more Kiwi businesses are targeted by malware.
