Box.net acquires Increo Solutions

Web-based storage service buys the company behind Backboard and Embedit.in, two services slated to eventually be integrated into Box's own feature set.

Collaborative-storage provider Box.net on Tuesday announced that it had acquired Mountain View, Calif.,-based Increo Solutions, a company with two Web products: Embedit.in and Backboard.

Financial terms of the deal have not been disclosed.

Embedit.in, which was launched in June , lets users post and share their documents in the cloud using an Adobe Flash-based viewer. And Backboard, which is the company's only paid product, lets users get feedback and collaborate on projects using that same document viewer.

In a company blog post on the acquisition, Box's community manager, Sean Lindo, said these products will continue to run independently but that both would later be integrated into Box.net as added features.
