Limit the amount of data a user can download to prevent data theft by employees.
Limit accidental or intentional bulk downloads.
An ex-employee intentionally or accidentally connected his Network Attached Storage device to his Box account, and it downloaded big chunks of our Box data. We want to prevent very large amounts of data (client work and IP) from being downloaded by users, for example, within a logged-in session, within a set timeframe or by the size of the folder (ie. large folders over a specific size containing folders).
This could be set per user with an enterprise-level default eg. 5GB. If someone tries to bulk download, the admin is altered. Users can request that the lock be taken off if they have a good reason for needing to move large amounts of data to their local machine.
Currently, a 'Storage quota' can be set per user. I understand this to mean the amount they can 'upload' to Box. So, it makes sense to have a similar limit on what a user can 'bulk download'.
