Box is perhaps the best known pureplay enterprise file sharing and synchronization vendor; while its on-again, off-again and finally across the line IPO wasn’t a stellar showing, the company, and its effervescent CEO Aaron Levie, has long been one of the more important players in the space. One vendor that has suffered a little for being in the shadow of Box is Huddle. Founded in the UK, and now firmly ensconced on both sides of the Atlantic, Huddle had some early success with government customers, picking up a whole-of-government deal in the UK that really put the young company on the map.
