  1. 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 -…

  2. Only allow specific people to have access to the option to override Box Shield Classifications, rather than "everybody or nobody."

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  6. Automatically re-route content flagged by Box Shield Malware scan to a specific folder owned by IT/InfoSec/Admin

    Automatically re-route content flagged by Box Shield Malware scan to a specific folder owned by IT/InfoSec/Admin. After the IT/InfoSec/Admin team approved the folder/file as safe, then release it back to its original location.

  7. Smart Access: Allow move/copy even with download restriction

    Download restriction restricts external users (editor permission) from moving content within folders they have access to. There should be an option to restrict download but also allow for moving and copying within folders that have the classification policy because to an end user, this is not a download function.

  9. 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

  10. 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。

  11. 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.

  13. 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.

  14. 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.

  15. 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

  16. 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…

  17. 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.

  18. 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.

  19. Restrict Collaboration for Individual External User

    Customer would like to have the ability to block individual external users from collaborating on their enterprise content. The external domain allow list is too broad if only one or two external users need to be blocked from collaborating on content.

  20. We are unable to respond when Geodetection alerts are triggered. Would greatly appreciate ability to prevent access.

    We have had a # of Geodetection alerts from users with unexpected IP addresses accessing shared links. Currently, we are unable to block these users, so we can only remove files after the fact. Our security team is requesting an ability to prevent this access (potentially with an ability for admins to override and allow the access).
