  1. Can we get another pop-up screen when Deleting a Shield Access policy to make sure that is the action the admin wants to take?

    The 'Delete' and the 'Edit' button are right next to each other on the Shield Access Policy page. When clicking 'Delete' the policy automatically deletes. It is easy to accidentally click instead of 'Edit'. Can we get a second window that asks if that is the action the Admin/ Co-Admin wants to take on the policy?

  2. Malicious Content False Positive Handling

    When a malicious content policy has a download restriction, it would be helpful if there is a way to identify false positives in order to allow downloads when required.

  3. 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.

    [日本語訳]
    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。

  4. Add Smart Access Security Control to cap external user permissions

    Add the ability to cap external access. Example; restrict external users to Viewer/Uploader rights or below; or Viewer and below (e.g. Read Only).

  5. 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.

  6. Remove Collaborator Access Policy Security Control in Shield

    When creating an access policy in Shield, there needs to be a security control that removes a collaborator after a specific period of time or on a specific date. It would work very similar to the "Invited Collaborators Expiration Settings" option that is available in the Admin Console under the Content and Sharing tab, but would be tied to a classification setting.

  8. Permission types to modify classifications by classification

    Provide the option to set who may modify classifications BY classification, rather than globally. Example: a Confidential classification might only allow owners to modify, whereas other classifications might allow changes by owners and co-owners.

  9. Option for Shared Link Restriction on new links only

    We would like the option to apply the shared link restriction to "new links only" so that current links are not overwritten. This would be similar to the External Collaboration Restriction option to apply to "only new external collaborations"

  10. 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.

  12. 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.

  13. "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.

  14. 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.

  16. View only ability as admin to view Detection rules, policies, and lists.

    Isolate the EDIT SHIELD CONFIGURATION co-admin permission to 2 different permissions:


    1. View-only detection rules, access policies, lists

    2. View, Edit, and Create Detection rules, access policies, and lists.

  17. 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.

  19. 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.

  20. 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.
