  1. Access policy prohibiting copying and moving to external folders(gray folders)

    Current Status and Issues:
    Currently, when a file or folder with a classification label is copied or moved to a gray folder, the classification is lost and the associated access policy stops working.
    The only way to prevent this is to prohibit the move or copy itself by attaching a DL inhibit label.

    Desired improvement:
    Please add "Prohibit copying to gray folders" to the access policy so that it can be set for each classification label.

    Why it is needed:
    Because some customers are not attracted to Shield due to the above problem.
    Also, setting a "no download" label would…

  2. Auto Classification policy does not work when folders are copied or moved

    We would like to improve the behavior so that the auto-classification policy works correctly for files within the folder, even if the folder is copied or moved.

    【Details】
    Currently, the Auto Classification policy works correctly when files are copied or moved, but not when folders are copied or moved.
    For example, if a ".dwg" file is stored in the "Technical Information" folder, there is an automatic classification policy that assigns the label "Technical Information" (not for external collaboration).
    In this case, when a file with a .dwg extension is moved from the "Outside Shared" folder, it is automatically assigned the…

  3. Exclude file movement in Box Drive from Box shield's anomalous download detection

    When I move a folder with multiple files stored in Box Drive, Box Shield's anomalous download detection works.
    Since the purpose of the detection of anomalous download is to detect downloads that are taken out of the system, this specification is not the behavior we are looking for.
    Therefore, I would like to see Box Shield exclude moving files in Box Drive from the detection of anomalous download.

    In Japanese:
    Box Driveで複数ファイルが格納されているフォルダを移動すると、Box Shieldの「異常なダウンロード」検知が動作してしまいます。
    異常なダウンロード検知の目的は、ダウンロードによる持ち出しの検知なので、この仕様は求めている動作ではないです。
    そのため、Box Driveの移動はBox Shieldの異常なダウンロード検知の対象外にしてほしいです。

  4. The "Application Restriction" should be configurable with the same granularity as the "Download and Print Restriction".

    (Japanese follows English)

    In the "Download and Print Restriction" section of Box Shield's Access Policy, it is possible to apply download, print, move and copy restrictions to Browser/Mobile/BoxDrive by specifying Managed/Outside Users and Owner/Co-Owner/Editor.
    On the other hand, third-party applications are not included in this restriction, and only downloads can be restricted under "Application Restrictions".
    We would like to be able to set "Application Restriction" to the same granularity as "Download and Print Restriction, as it provides a more consistent user experience if the same controls are applied regardless of which device or application is accessing the site.

  5. Request to improve the behavior of files with "Download and Print Restrictions" set on Box Drive

    In Shield > Access Policy, we are creating a classification label for the policy that has "Restrict downloading and printing" set as the security control.
    Depending on when you set this label classification, Box Drive may not have the limitations you expect.
    I would like to see an improvement so that files with "Download and Print Restrictions" set cannot be opened or copied in Box Drive from the moment the settings are set.

    The specific steps and events are as follows.
    1. Open the file before setting the classification label in Box Drive.
    2. Edit, save and close the file.…

  6. Shield Requests

    Currently Box sheild has the capability to Scan only newly updated/created files or only if the existing file is modified. In simple terms the scan happens only for the newly created version of the files and not any existing files before Box shield is being implemented.

    Feature request:

    1. We need to have the option of Scanning all the files at rest & transit in Box irrespective of when it was created/ modified, etc so that it can detect any malware on already available files as well.

    2. Currently Box only encrypts the file with a red banner on top if malware…

  7. Update Shield Access Policy Restriction for Box Sign

    For the Box Sign Request Restriction, add the option allow a signature request, but require additional security controls (e.g., signer authentication, password) for the signature request.

    We need the ability to send sensitive content for signature but don't want it sent using a public link.

  8. Improvement of anomalous download

    At the present, Anomalous download can't detect the external user's behavior.
    I think it is the risk of data leakage.
    I want to detect anomalous download of external users who is invited my tenant.
    thanks

  9. Filter Marked as safe

    Shield needs a filter and a display setting for the dashboard for an alert that have been checked and marked as safe, currently it is hard to identify alerts that have been checked by other admins and marked as safe causing duplicate effort.

  10. Enhanced Auto Classification and File Criteria for All File Types in Box

    We would like to have the ability to specify all file types in the file criteria for auto classification. Since there is currently no way to cascade classifications to all files excluding folders (categorizing confidential info on a file-by-file basis), I would like a feature where all files can be classified.

    With the current individual extension specifications, it is not possible to use wildcard characters, so we would like to reduce the potential for information leakage due to intentional extension changes.

  11. Be able to Block specific filetypes from being uploaded to Box

    Allow for an organization-wide policy to block specific filetypes from being uploaded to Box, or at least prevent them from being uploaded/moved to specific folders with specific classifications.

  12. block an upload by external user using Box Drive with smart access

    The current Shield feature only controls downloading, cannot blocks uploading/syncing and is not ransom-proof. The biggest problem is that when external users use BoxDrive and BoxSync, ransomware-infected files are uploaded/synchronized on Box.

  13. Shield Malware Threat Detection False Positives on Excel Documents with Macros

    Multiplan (160k ARR) turned on Malware Deep Scan and was getting 3-5 false positives per day because users across multiple departments often work on Excel Documents with Macros. Due to their process, users need to upload new versions of these Excel documents daily (they cannot use Version Control to handle this). So the IT team is being pinged every time a new version is added. This has been so overwhelming that the IT team has turned off Malware Detection. They will enable again if Macros are not accidentally flagged as potentially malicious.

  14. Allow Shield Location Rule Restriction By Folder

    Currently Shield's Location Restriction rule is applied to the entire EID by user/groups. It would be helpful to be able to set this up by specific folder(s) or folder structure.

    Ex. Team A is not allowed to view specific content while in Location X, however Team B is able to. Currently the restriction would be set on the EID level and both teams would be under this restriction.

    We could exclude group B or other groups from the rule however Group A would still be restricted from accessing other content within the EID.

  15. Provide an exportable report for Shield Admin for each Anomalous Download alert

    Every time an anomalous download alert is received, IT would ideally want to share a readily available report (XLSX / CSV) with the affected user's manager as they would know far more about the content and whether this is abnormal behavior. As it stands today, if the alert is not big then a manual list of folders / files is provided, or we have to run a User Activity Report (which can take some time) and then filter and cut down accordingly.

  16. Make MPIP and Shield Classification Labels Bidirectional

    This make require partnership with Microsoft, but it would be ideal if the MPIP integration was bidirectional. For example, if a file in Box doesn't have an MPIP label, but a Shield classification label is applied, the document would have an MPIP label applied based on the mapping table

  18. Ability to map Box Groups to Information Barrier Segments

    The current requirement for uniqueness in Information Barrier segments only allows Box Admins to add individual users to segments, not user groups. This process can increase the long-term maintenance.

    Ideally, customers should be able to use attributes from Active Directory that are then synced to Box Groups. Ultimately, the Box Groups would be used to update Information Barrier segment membership automatically. If the group update breaks the requirement that a user can only belong to one segment, Box could produce an error message.

  19. Applying folder exceptions/exclusions to Classification policies

    Would like to apply folder exceptions/exclusions to Classification Policies. Currently, we can apply to a selected group of folders, but we have an organizational need to be able to apply a classification policy to all content and add a small selection of folders to exclude from that classification policy.

  20. Additional info in Anomalous Download Shield e-mail notifications

    It would be very helpful to see "Previous weekly download amount", "anomalous download amount" and the "delta" on Anomalous download e-mail notifications. We use these to identify notifications that require further investigation, but these are only available by clicking into the reports which make this kind of detection difficult to scale and manage.
