  1. Show Auto-Classification Criteria Matches on Classification Label On File

    Auto-classification matches are currently stored within metadata on a file. If auto-classification classifies a piece of content, we'd like for the classification label indicator on a file (or hovering over the label) to show what criteria was met which requires a specific label. The purpose of this is to have a visual indicator to reinforce the sensitivity of content within a file.

  2. Classified contents report

    We would like to list the contents based on the classification, to find classified contents stored in unexpected folder.
    Some of sensitive contents need to be strictly controlled and stored in the proper folder.

  3. Make Shield Lists Accessible via API

    Shield lists are not currently editable using an API endpoint. In order to make it possible to automate adding and removing entries to lists, I suggest making it possible to create/view/edit/delete shield lists using the Box API.

  4. I would like to be able to change from a classification with a strict policy to a classification with a loose policy. The reverse should be

    For the purpose of strictly protecting confidential information, we want to make it impossible to change from strict to loose permissions, even for users who have the authority to change classification labels. However, with the current Shield function, it is not possible to set the priority of changeability.
    One possible way to achieve this is to allow users to set rankings for classifications or policies, and to limit the direction of the rankings.

  6. Whitelisting Access Using Managed User Groups

    Companies frequently hire contractors and provide them with company email addresses to access internal networks and applications. This creates an issue with contractors having visibility into an entire folders and not just the projects/folders that apply to them. Shield's whitelisting capabilities allow us to limit external email domains, but because contractors are given a company email domain the whitelisting capabilities do not apply.

    We would like to be able to create a "Consultants" Managed User Group and whitelist access to break waterfall permission for internal Managed User Groups.

  7. Malicious Content False Positive Handling

    When a malicious content policy has a download restriction, it would be helpful if there is a way to identify false positives in order to allow downloads when required.

  8. filter the activity report with specific classification

    We want to get the activity reports for specific classification(just like specifying the folder).

    We need to audit user activities for confidential files every quarter. Current activity reports can only specify the user, date, folder and action, not classification.

  9. We are unable to respond when Geodetection alerts are triggered. Would greatly appreciate ability to prevent access.

    We have had a # of Geodetection alerts from users with unexpected IP addresses accessing shared links. Currently, we are unable to block these users, so we can only remove files after the fact. Our security team is requesting an ability to prevent this access (potentially with an ability for admins to override and allow the access).

  10. Priority of classification policies in combination with shield detection rules

    Hi,
    I can currently prioritize classification policies. Unfortunately, the classifications used in this way categorically overwrite those created with box shield's access policies.
    For example: I have a classification only with shield access policies.. high confidential. This includes external collaboration restriction, download and print restriction.
    It will be set manually on the desired folders. All files in this folder are now protected
    Now i also have a classification with classification policies like credit card number or IBAN code. This should inform user automatically that there's a file with (maybe) protectable content.
    This overwrites the classification which is manually set on…

  11. Shield enhancement against EID-to-EID content move / copy

    Need the ability to generate a Shield alert when someone copies or moves content from one EID repository to another EID; to include any movement of content via the api.box.com utilizing cURL or other CLI.

  13. Remove Collaborator Access Policy Security Control in Shield

    When creating an access policy in Shield, there needs to be a security control that removes a collaborator after a specific period of time or on a specific date. It would work very similar to the "Invited Collaborators Expiration Settings" option that is available in the Admin Console under the Content and Sharing tab, but would be tied to a classification setting.

  14. Can we get another pop-up screen when Deleting a Shield Access policy to make sure that is the action the admin wants to take?

    The 'Delete' and the 'Edit' button are right next to each other on the Shield Access Policy page. When clicking 'Delete' the policy automatically deletes. It is easy to accidentally click instead of 'Edit'. Can we get a second window that asks if that is the action the Admin/ Co-Admin wants to take on the policy?

  15. Shield Shared Links: Password Requirement

    Passwords for public links are wonderful, however, the capability to enforce all links (even those with internal or collaborator scope) would be beneficial for users and content security. If this password requirement could be tied to classifications as an access policy, that would make it increasingly difficult for negligent or malicious actions on Box content. Currently, we can only decrease the scope available for shared links, but by requiring a password, there will be additional adoption for Box and Shield, especially within highly regulated industries that require external or public distribution of content.

  16. Add Smart Access Security Control to cap external user permissions

    Add the ability to cap external access. Example; restrict external users to Viewer/Uploader rights or below; or Viewer and below (e.g. Read Only).

  18. Permission types to modify classifications by classification

    Provide the option to set who may modify classifications BY classification, rather than globally. Example: a Confidential classification might only allow owners to modify, whereas other classifications might allow changes by owners and co-owners.

  19. Option for Shared Link Restriction on new links only

    We would like the option to apply the shared link restriction to "new links only" so that current links are not overwritten. This would be similar to the External Collaboration Restriction option to apply to "only new external collaborations"

  20. Notify or provide options on password protected files in Automated Classification

    When running automated classification, files containing passwords will not be checked for PII information. This means they are potentially at risk of getting shared externally. There should be options to classify them if they are password protected or it should have the option of alerting.
