  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. 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…

  3. 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.

  5. Box shield :Access Policy Restrictions

    We would like to see the addition of the ability to grant permissions only to the owner for access policies as well.

    We have learned that Box Shield will allow us to grant permission to change classifications only to the owner.
    https://support.box.com/hc/en-us/articles/1500000108061

    In addition to the classification change permissions, the customer would like to make the access policy "Restrict Downloading and Printing" also owner-only for managed users.
    Therefore, We would like to see the addition of the ability to grant permissions only to the owner for access policies as well.

    アクセスポリシーも所有者のみに権限付与する機能を追加してほしいです。

    私たちはBox Shieldで、分類の変更権限を所有者のみ権限付与することができるようになることを知りました。
    https://support.box.com/hc/en-us/articles/1500000108061

    お客様は分類変更の権限に加え、アクセスポリシーの「ダウンロードと印刷の制限」も管理対象ユーザーも所有者のみにしたいと考えています。
    そのため、アクセスポリシーにもアクセスポリシーも所有者のみに権限付与する機能を追加してほしいです。

  6. 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.

  8. Box Sheild can use some help

    It would be great if there was a way to be able to enter notes on an incident. Also to flag an incident as complete and have it removed from the list.

  9. 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.

  12. "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.

  13. Add ability to allowlist unpublished apps in a Shield list or Access Policy

    Currently, the only apps that can be exempt from an Access Policy are published apps or custom JWT apps that have been approved in the Admin Console. There is a gap for unpublished OAuth apps that may need to be allowlisted from a policy.

  15. Auto classification of files/folders based on metadata and comments

    It would be helpful if Box's auto classification feature were able to trigger file classification (and thus, security controls) if metadata on a file/folder is sensitive in nature or if a file has comments/tasks/annotations that contain sensitive information.

  16. Limit the rights of users who can change classification labels.

    ■Background
    We are currently using Box Shield to control the public scope of shared links.
    Currently, co-owners would still be able to use the classification labels even if they are set to "Owners/co owners" in the below settings.

    We want to make sure that only the owner can set classification labels.

    ■Details
    Classification labels can be configured with "Admin console>Classification".
    When the Box administrator clicks on Settings, the following settings are available:


    Classification settings
    Only allow selected permission types to modify classifications on content.
    See collaboration permission chart.

  17. Inherit classifications when copying file from one folder to another

    In Box Shield Smart Access, if moved from Folder A, which is assigned the [In-House] classification, to Folder B, which is assigned the [Public] classification, Folder A's classification will be inherited.

    However, the classification of [In-house] in folder A is not inherited when the copy operation is performed, the [Public] classification assigned to folder B is assigned.
    Since the classification is not inherited by the copy operation, this function can be useful to prevent information leakage by implementing this function.

  18. Make available list of countries available for a Shield List

    The input fields are not the easiest way to find a value to add to a Shield List. Naming convention is different across systems, so it would be helpful to know the values that are available to be added.

  19. 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.

  20. Threat detection at the classification level

    Threat detection at the classification level. Specifically, we would like the ability to monitor suspicious location and/or suspicious download for a particular dataset rather than the entire content population of our account.
