  1. Last Mile File Security (When moved out of Box)

    Last Mile File Security (When moved out of Box)

    Box is a reasonably safe platform for file security. However, when a file moves or downloads out to a user device it drops the security controls in box.

    Can there be control when the file of specific classification moves out, the downloaded copy of the file is encrypted and open to the recipient only after box authentication.

  2. GDPR- PII Detection

    Increase PII detection templates from just three Social Security no, Credit card and Custom text to more as offered by other DLP products in the marketplace.

    In addition to real-time detection, also allow discovery of the legacy data utilizing the same templates. Notification on detection could include an on-screen warning/ policy tip in addition to email and file quarantine options etc.

  3. Unable to administer Macro Enabled Office Documents in Box

    At present we have a Group Policy that prevents Macro Enabled Office documents from being opened in our environment. When a macro enabled document is uploaded into box, it circumvents the group policy and is able to be opened on our network. We'd love the ability to manage the types of documents able to be downloaded/opened on our network based on their file extension or type of document.

  4. Alert when Password Reset is coming due

    We have our users set to reset every 90 days. We find this consitently sneaks up on our users and they end up with expired passwords and then have to reach out to our IT department for assistance. This is mainly an issue with our Drive or Mobile app only users. Your website handles it well if they use the website they will be prompted. If they are on the Mobile app it stays logged in and breaks. (Shows folders and can be navigated but unable to see files) I would greatly appreciate it if we at least had to…

  6. Add hardware token security for 2FA

    Yubikeys and similar devices allow for hardware token security and are highly recommended. We want to implement it across devices (ipad, iphone, android, MacOS, Windows) and this must include Box

    SMS 2 factor is considered very hackable and has been hacked many times.
    How can we use Yubikeys with Box.com ? What are your plans on this?

  7. limit deletions

    My staff need the ability to upload & download various files, but I don't want them (or me!) to have the ability to delete large swathes of my database. I can't find a way to limit this, in Box

  8. Automate quarantining of infected files

    While speaking with Box Premiere Support Team, it was stated that there is no current option/means to automatically place an infected file into quarantine. The file stays available and is up to the Content Owner/Site Admin to manually address the issue.

    It would be nice to have a feature that automatically placed suspicious/infected files in a designated quarantine folder while it is being reviewed. This will eliminate the potential for someone to accidentally download the file and cause potential harm.

  9. Event Logs: Tell the full story of what happened

    The Box Event Logs are crucial to finding out what occurred while users were logged in to the application.
    However, there are many gaps in the data that if cleaned up would provide better quality data for end users.

    I work with many companies that actively use your tool and would like to be able to tell a full story as to what their users were doing while logged in.

    For example, when an Admin Login event occurs, you see the user the admin logged in as, but you do not see the admin who logged in as the user.…

  11. Enforce parent folder collaboration restrictions on moved folders

    Make sure that folder settings apply to all the subfolders. Currently, even if you restrict collaboration to within your company through folder settings, a folder that is already collaborated to external users can be moved into that folder. Right now, we don’t have the mechanism to check if a folder that is about to be moved is collaborated to external user.

  12. Remove External Password once Done

    I would love to see the ability to remove/disable the External password after it has been used. We have many users who only need it once or twice for something niche, but once it's set you can't undo it meaning they're stuck rotating that password every 90 days, forever, despite us being on SSO.

    Disabling this closes a login method that's no longer needed which is overall more secure, and removes a large inconvenience.

  13. Security Issue: File can be downloaded without permission

    Dears,

    Per the "Previewer" role definition the user can not download the file, only see the preview of the file.
    Actually it seems it is supereasy to download the file if you copy the url of content?preview=true....... initator pdf.min.js:631 type: fetch.

    I hope this helps, pls let me know if you need more deatils.

    Thanks!

  14. Support smartcard authentication for Box Sync and Box Drive.

    Please put some more effort into federal customers inquiring about SSO sign in for Box Sync on Macs. The response I got was kind of a punt to our smart cards being the problem but fed agencies have an increasing mandate to login with smartcards. My specific issue may affect many other gov agencies that use Macs and Box Sync. Long story short – smart card certificate passthrough on Windows works as expected and certificates pass through Box Sync app login to the external SSO for USDA e-Authentication but the certificates don’t appear to make it to the external authenticator…

  15. Shared Link vs Shared Folder Collaborator Options

    I would like to grant Previewer collaborator option when creating a shared link on a file.


    1. When using the Shared Link for a file, only available collaborator options are Editor and Viewer.

    2. When using the Shared Link for a folder, available collaborator options: Uploader, Previewer, Viewer, Previewer Uploader, Viewer Uploader, Editor, Co-Owner.

    When granting access at the folder level opens a security hole where later files can be viewed as well, when only one file needs to be shared.

  16. Limit which applications can be used for non-trusted pc's

    I'd like the ability to limit which applications can be used to open files for non-trusted pc's (and mac's). I'd like to limit non-domain pc's to open files using Office online applications, but not using Office clients installed on the PC directly. The goal is to remove the ability for non-domain pc's to continue editing files, but not have them stored locally in any way.

  17. Watermarked PDFs should remain searchable

    When downloading a watermarked PDF, users lose the ability to search content of the file. It appears Box is converting the file to an image on download. Text should still remain searchable

  19. need to edit files but not change folder nae

    I need the ability to give users permissions so that they can upload files, edit files, delete files but not be able to change the folder name that those files are in. I'm going to use Skysync to move files there and the process will break if someone changes the folder name. Right now i don't think i can do this.

  20. Copy only - access level so collaborator cannot move files.

    Create an access level that allows a collaborator to copy a file to a different location without having to give them the editor access level.
