It helps some of the world’s largest companies to optimize billions of dollars in spend annually, in categories that include transportation, packaging, materials, professional services and others.
In this case study, John Paul O’Gorman, Head of Engineering, shares some insights about the process of choosing Boxcrypor and about their experiences with the software.
The problem is that strategic sourcing is too slow. There are too few experts who understand advanced sourcing techniques, and teams are overwhelmed with data. Our mission is the optimization of A.I. to democratize the sourcing industry while producing better results.
After recognizing the need to keep Keelvar’s data and the data of our customers secure in third party cloud services, management decided to conduct a Google search for a product that could solve this problem. Analyzing the reviews of available security solutions,
Boxcryptor clearly stood out as understanding the problem and putting a clear and usable solution forward.
Boxcryptor’s technical documentation helped build confidence, so we had no doubt that this was a company who would keep our customers' data secure. Thanks to Boxcryptor's zero-knowledge encryption, we were sure that cloud storage was a strong asset for Keelvar, and not a potential liability.
We gained a first overview of how the product worked in Boxcryptor's Webinar for teams. The subsequent testing and roll out went very smoothly. Most users in management and in the teams followed the short instructions provided as part of the roll-out. Due to the very good usability of the software, additional support was not necessary.
Boxcryptor is a foundation stone in our in-depth security design. It provides a platform to enforce security best practice. Additionally, it is a a technology that helps us implement policies on information security, data protection and GDPR.

Hence, Boxcryptor secures the most sensitive data and thereby forms part of a strategic security implementation plan that helps protect Keelvar’s reputation, and by extension, that of our customers.
