  1. 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.

  2. Support for Regular Expression (REGEX) for Auto-Classification in Shield

    We would like the ability to support Regular Expressions (REGEX) for creating auto-classifications rules in Shield. This would greatly enhance how much we can leverage the capability

  3. Increase the maximum number of Shield Classifications beyond 25 so that we can classify each clients content to prevent mis-sharing

    I would like to see the ability to add Shield Classifications per client - with the appropriate access policy (restricting to client email domain) we could avoid any possibility to overshare when inviting the wrong clients into a folder or sharing a shared link - There is a maximum number of classifications of 25 so could this be extended to facilitate this use case/control.

  4. Require approval when sharing content with a business justification

    Current access policy allows for external collaboration with a valid business justification, but we would also like to have the admin or folder owner approve the request to share externally, before the collaboration is sent. The current design doesn't allow for any validation and could potentially lead to content being shared with a restricted audience. Once the exception is approved, the collaboration could be set.

  5. Set default classification for all uploads with Box Classification

    When every file is uploaded, set a default Classification value that can be updated manually or via a partner (Netskope, SkyHigh, Titus, etc.).

    Default classification label is not planned because it could be misleading to end users. However, to address the concern of content being leaked before it is classified, you can create an access policy applying to “All content without a classification label” in Box Shield.

  6. Shield Suspicious Location User-Level Exclusion

    Allow for user level exclusion for suspicious location alerts. This is helpful in the event that users are traveling across locations and various IP addresses.

  7. Create reports for Shield actions/tracking

    Create reporting for Shield activities, including the following:
    1) Classifications applied by their name (i.e. 'externalpublic used on 157 folders/files'). This would help determine popular and unpopular classifications.
    2) User who applied the classification label and each time they applied one (i.e. Person A applied shield classification labels on 10/1, 10/2, 10/3, etc). Helps see who is using the labels and how frequently.
    3) User and which label they applied (i.e. Person B applied the external
    public label on 10/1, 10/2, 10/3, etc.). Helps see a combo of the above two bullets.
    4) Number of times a shield classification…

  8. Display Shield classification labels by default beside the name of each item in a folder

    When viewing the contents of a folder, it would be beneficial to the user experience to see which items are classified and how without needing to select the item or attempt to preview it.

  9. 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.

  10. Block file extensions lists in Shield malware detection

    As part of Governance it is possible to move certain file types to a Quarantine folder. This is useful for a lot of ransomwares, as they change the extension of files.

    Currently this "old" functionality has not yet been moved to Shield. Shield does have a malware detection, which uses threat detection technology. We would like to have the ability to extend this with a list of known extensions.

  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.

  12. Block single user

    Our security has deemed a single email as suspicious. We would like to block this single email from connecting to our Box, or being collaborated into our Box.

    With Shield we can block the whole domain, but that approach is too broad and would limit too many valid email addresses.

  13. Shield reports suspicious IP location when opening files through O365. Adds lots of unnecesary noise

    In Shield, when a user previews/opens a file to Office Online it tracks as a suspicious IP location. It would be great if it could be separated and designated a lower priority than a genuine account compromise. Just a suggestion to clean up the Shield alert queue

  14. Ability to exclude domains from autoclassification trigger

    As a user, I want to be able to exclude my company domains from the Shield email address autoclassification trigger, so that policies are not being applied to internal emails, just external PII

  15. Take action on user based on Threat Detection Shield Rule

    Extending threat detection ALERTS to take action on a user's access would be very valuable. I've heard lots of customers request having a user's account deactivated if they access Box from a suspicious location. Right now, there is not a way to do this through the core Box application, it has to be done through custom scripting or with another tool.

  16. 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.

  17. "Smart Access: Download restriction" for G-Suite

    We want "Smart Access: Download restriction" to control the download/printing capability of G-Suite apps. We want the integration just like office online which restrict download/print on office online apps.

    For security perspective, we want to minimize the risk of data breach, so we are planning to store the confidential files on box and restrict the content to be downloaded to the devices. However currently if user opened the files on G-Suite, the files can be downloaded or printed.

  18. 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.

  20. Shield classification user permissions

    Request to make classification application settings specific to the classification. Currently, the setting for who can apply/remove a classification is for all classifications, but there are cases where it would be helpful that a classification to be only applied by owners and other where co-owner, or even editor would be allowed to apply certain classifications.

    Examples:
    1. A classification tied to a Shield access control rule that only owners can apply or remove
    2. A classification tied to a Shield access control rule that owner/co-owners can apply or remove
    3. A classification identifying a type of content that owners/co-owner/editors can…
