TitanFile vs Box

If you’re looking for a reliable secure file sharing solution, TitanFile and Box may be on your radar.

What differentiates the two platforms is that TitanFile is better for addressing use cases that involve two-way file transfer and collaboration with external parties. On the other hand, Box is meant for cloud storage and syncing files across multiple devices.

Below, we’re going to share with you the top 5 reasons why our clients choose TitanFile over Box.


“We really gauge the success of a product by three main things: reliability, usage, and feedback from users. TitanFile has passed all of these metrics with flying colors.”

– Kevin Larsen, IT Manager at Gowling WLG (Canada) LLP


1. State-of-the-art-Security

At TitanFile, our #1 priority is to keep your information secure and private.

TitanFile is SOC 2 compliant and incorporates state-of-the-art security features such as encryption in-transit and at-rest, granular access permissions, and multi-factor authentication to ensure that all communication through TitanFile remains confidential.

To take it a step further, TitanFile is one of the only file sharing solution providers that offers client-side encryption, which means you own the keys to decrypt your own files.


2. High User Adoption

TitanFile was built with security and ease-of-use in mind. As a result, TitanFile is as easy to use as email and results in higher user adoption rates compared to other file sharing solutions like Box.

Even if you’re using TitanFile for the very first time, you’ll be able to start sharing files and secure messages within minutes. First-time recipients will be able to easily access files and messages without requiring any assistance. Your staff will spend less time on support calls, and more time being productive.


3. Large File Transfer

There are no limitations in TitanFile. The platform enables you to easily share files of any size, type, or volume. With just a few clicks, you can upload multiple files or even entire folder structures directly from your computer without having to zip them beforehand.

When compared to Box, our clients have noticed significantly faster upload speeds with TitanFile. You’ll be able to share gigabytes worth of information within minutes.


4. Two-way Collaboration

Unlike Box, TitanFile makes two-way file sharing and collaboration easy.

TitanFile gives you access to unlimited secure workspaces with external collaborators. Inside of these workspaces, you can share files, messages, and sign documents electronically.

TitanFile’s built-in advanced file and folder management features also help to all of your information secure in one place.



5. Compliance

TitanFile helps you improve compliance with HIPAA, PIPEDA, GDPR, and PCI DSS by enabling two-way 100% compliant file sharing and data storage. When you share files through the platform, you’ll have confidence knowing that the files are encrypted in transit and at rest, and stored on your choice of a server in the US, Canada, or Europe.

TitanFile also keeps track of all activity using detailed audit logs so you have access to time-stamped records of when files were successfully delivered, accessed, or downloaded.
