Box, formerly usually referred to as Box.net, has landed a big customer: consumer goods juggernaut Procter & Gamble.

The latter will bring Box’s cloud content management solution to 18,000 globally distributed employees following some test runs with a select number of P&G divisions.

Procter & Gamble has 127,000 employees across more than 180 countries, so it’s important to note the deal leaves room for increased adoption within the company over the next three years.

Box says the deployment represents its largest enterprise deal to date.

Previously, Box was already powering internal and external content sharing and collaboration for a couple of P&G divisions. Its services are designed to empower P&G employees to share and access information across devices (with mobile applications for iPhone, iPad, and BlackBerry), without any P&G maintenance or upgrades.

Box also says roughly 60,000 businesses and 6 million users are using its services today.

The startup recently raised $48 million in Series D funding from Andreessen Horowitz, Meritech Capital Partners, and Emergence Capital Partners, bringing its total capital raised to roughly $78 million. For your further reading pleasure:
