DigiBoxx, India’s first digital storage and sharing platform, raises a ‘vocal for local’ call in light of the recent government notification against the use of non-governmental cloud services such as Google Drive and Dropbox for data created by its employees. The cloud storage and asset management platform is a made-in-India product for individuals, professionals and enterprises.
DigiBoxx upholds the government’s intentions as well as the citizen’s best interests by keeping critical data created in India within its borders. The company feels data sovereignty is the need of the hour with the growth of Indian data centres, improved mobile connectivity, and a burgeoning start-up scene that can best be served by local cloud storage service providers.
“The government’s decision to abstain from using services that do not save sensitive local data within our borders is a logical one. Individuals, enterprises and government agencies need a local, robust solution like DigiBoxx for a growing digital India,” said Arnab Mitra, CEO, DigiBoxx.
The company provides secure and convenient file storage options for individuals as well as businesses and start-ups from various verticals including ad agencies, food & beverages, BFSI, retail, manufacturing, sports and technology.
Some salient DigiBoxx features include:
- Accessibility via web, mobile browser and Android smartphone app (iOS coming up).
