The Features of Boxcryptor Company and Enterprise

Boxcryptor offers all you need to protect your data in the cloud.

Boxcryptor Company

For teams with up to 50 users (includes all features of the licenses for individual users).

  • Master Key

    Stay in control of your company’s data.

    See Details

    Enable the Master Key to allow the admin to decrypt every file in your company or organization – without having to know the user’s passwords. With the Master Key, you are protected against the loss of access to you property (your files). This is important in complicated situations, for example, when a user forgets his password or leaves the company. Learn More.

  • Customizable Policies

    Comply with your security guidelines in a simple way.

    See Details

  • Active Directory Support

  • Activity Auditing

    See Details

  • Two-Factor Authentication

    Confirm logins on a second device for higher account security.

    See Details

    With two-factor authentication, you enhance the security of your accounts because your users have to confirm each login with a second device – for example their smartphone. Once it is setup, 2FA enhances security without creating a complicated workflow.

  • User Password Reset

    Reset forgotten user passwords to prevent data loss.

    See Details

    Due to Boxcryptor’s zero knowledge nature, a user loses access to his files if the password is lost or forgotten. Without the password, it is not possible to decrypt the user’s private key. Thus, it is not possible to decrypt the files. However, if a company administrator has enabled the Master Key feature, he can use the password reset feature. The Master Key allows him to decrypt the private keys of all users that belong to the company and to reset passwords. For more information check our technical overview.

    More information

    Who can use Boxcryptor for Microsoft Teams?

    Boxcryptor for Microsoft Teams is available for all Boxcryptor Company and Enterprise customers. It is not available for individual users on Boxcryptor Free, Personal or Business plans. If you are interested to use Boxcryptor for Microsoft Teams in your organization, you can start a free 14-day Boxcryptor Company trial or reach out to our sales team for more information. Boxcryptor Company is already available for 5 users and more.

    Where can I use Boxcryptor in Microsoft Teams?

    Boxcryptor is available in three locations in Microsoft Teams:

    1. As a personal app in the left navigation bar. The personal app connects with your own OneDrive so that you can access your own encrypted files.
    2. As a channel app in a channel's tab bar. The channel app connects with the channel's SharePoint folder so that all channel members can access encrypted files in the channel.
    3. As a message extension app in channel's message compose box. The message extension app allows you to post and view encrypted files for other channel members in the channel chat. Encrypted files uploaded in the channel chat are stored in the channel's encrypted files root folder.

    All three apps are included in the app package you need for the installation and are installed as a complete package.

    Can I edit Microsoft Office (Word, Excel, etc.) documents in Boxcryptor?

    Unfortunately, no. Microsoft Teams uses Office Online to directly create, view and edit Office documents. Office Online is provided and run by Microsoft and requires Office documents to be sent to Microsoft's servers in order to work with them. For obvious reasons, Boxcryptor cannot send plaintext data to Microsoft and thus does not support Office Online for document editing.

    The recommended workflow to edit Office documents in Boxcryptor for Microsoft Teams is to download the document, edit it locally on your device and re-upload the edited document in Boxcryptor for Microsoft Teams. If a file with the same name already exists, you will be asked if you want to overwrite or skip it.

    Can I access the encrypted channel files in the Boxcryptor clients?

    Not yet. We are currently working on support for encrypted channel files in the Boxcryptor clients and doing our best to deliver this functionality as soon as possible. Until then, you can access encrypted channel files only in Boxcryptor for Microsoft Teams.
