Major Challenges

The US Senate was using Box as their primary cloud storage and collaboration tool. The organization, however, opted to use Office 365 and needed to transfer a lot of data, users, and sharing permissions. It was this time the organization realized that they would need a secure tool to automate the migration.

  • Migrate 2000+ Box user accounts
  • Transfer 50+ TB of data
  • Migrate file sharing permissions
  • Migrate metadata, shared links, version history, and Box Notes
  • Implement strict data security, residency, and privacy rules during the migration

Data Security Was Top Priority

The US Senate evaluated several tools and was not satisfied with them mainly from a security standpoint.

Senate discovered CloudFuze as a part of their solution discovery and reached out to us requesting more details about the product. CloudFuze quickly understood Senate’s migration needs and arranged a demo session.

The Senate reviewed all the Box to OneDrive migration solutions on the market and decided to go with CloudFuze. The organization chose CloudFuze mostly because of the highest level of data security the product offered. In fact, CloudFuze was the only product that met all their data security and privacy needs.
