Box and Gartner accounts now available

Version 2015.01.20

Library and Technology Services (LTS) recognizes that research is powered by the twin engines of collaboration and information. LTS is therefore pleased to announce the general availability of two new services: brandeis.box.com and gartner.brandeis.edu.

Box is a new, highly secure and highly mobile file storage and collaboration tool. Our subscription to Gartner provides all Brandeis faculty, staff, and students with access Gartner’s entire library of technology and entrepreneurial research material. Both services are fully integrated with the campus single sign-on solution so logging in is easy and uses your regular Brandeis login and password.

In order to use these services, please log into them only using the following URLs.

Why Box?

Box is highly secure and the preferred solution for student information and other forms of personally identifiable information. Box is endorsed and the preferred storage solution of the IRB. Every Box account has a default size of 75 GBs which can be expanded upon request.
