  1. Shield access policy customization - inclusion/exclusion list for downloading files

    Interested in an inclusion/exclusion list FOR downloading files, as part of a Shield access policy.

    Ex: If Owners/Co-Owners/Editors are OK to download they want control the file types they can download. I know you can control this by just creating a separate classification and policy but that could cause too many of them. Better to create an filetype inclusion list

  3. Access Control Restrictions by user

    As a administrator, I would like the ability to turn off certain Access Control Restrictions across all collaborators vs. limiting it to specific collaborator roles.

    Example:
    Download / Print Restrictions.

    we would still like users to leverage the app but, not allow them to download/print to their mobile device. Yes, the app function can be disable enterprise-wide but, we want to limit it to a specific function within the mobile app regardless of their collaborator role.

  4. Uploading restrictions for folders to which Box Shield's "External Collaborator Restrictions" are applied

    We would like to be able to restrict users from uploading files and folders to folders to which BoxShield's "External Collaborator Restrictions" have been applied by dragging and dropping them into the browser.
    By granting users the authority to edit and prohibiting uploads, it will be possible to more clearly distinguish between file management and access authority management, and allow editing while maintaining a level of security.

    (In Japanese)
    BoxShieldの「外部コラボレータ制限」を適用しているフォルダに、ブラウザへのドラッグ&ドロップでファイル・フォルダをアップロードすることを制限できるようにしてほしいです。
    ユーザーに編集する権限を付与し、アップロードを禁止する事でファイル管理及びアクセス権限の管理をより明確に区別し、セキュリティレベルを保ちつつ編集を可能とする事が可能になると考えられます。

  5. I would like the access policy to have preview only functionality

    I would like the access policy to have preview only functionality.
    If only some files in a folder with editor privileges can be set to preview, there is no need to create a separate folder.

  6. If the access policy restricts download and printing, Excel files cannot be co-edited with MS Excel Online

    Excel files cannot be co-edited in MS Excel Online if the access policy restricts downloading and printing.
    One of the purposes of using Excel Online is co-editing.
    I would like to be able to co-edit in a situation where downloads are restricted.

  7. 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.

  8. BOX SHIELD - Block all applications from downloading content

    The following feature is redundant:

    Block all applications from downloading content - No integrated applications (except Microsoft Office for the web, Google Workspace, Apple iWork, and Adobe Acrobat Online) or published custom applications will be able to download content protected by the access policy.

    I thought the purpose of Box Shield was to protect organizations from data breaches????

    We have configured everything within our box account to prevent certain data from being download or printed. However, Box gives our users the option to open these confidential files in Adobe Acrobat which then allows them to download, print, and anything else…

  10. Access policies for individual folders

    Would it be possible to set up access policies that can be applied per-folder instead of by Classification label?

    We have Ethical Walls and security concerns where we need to prevent sharing of files of Client A with Client B and also with preventing individual users from being shared folders.

    One way to do this would be classification policies - but I have far more clients than the twenty five label limit.

    The way around this would be to allow access policies by folder, regardless of classification, as well as the Box-wide access policy for unclassified content.

    Client A -…

  12. 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.

  14. 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.

  16. 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…

  17. 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.

  18. Allow Shield List of Countries Usable for Access Policies

    There may be certain countries a Box customer may be prohibited from sharing with under any circumstance. I suggest making it possible to whitelist or blacklist entire countries by allowing Shield Lists of countries to be included in Access Policies.
