As Box is increasingly adopted throughout organizations, and forward-leaning CIOs use it to create a lasting competitive advantage, the C-suite and boards now more than ever are asking questions like “What’s our cloud strategy?” as well as “What kind of sensitive data do we have in the cloud, and what’s our plan to protect it?”

CIOs have a great story to tell! Their talk-track will go like this:

  1. Box has an excellent enterprise-readiness rating in the Netskope Cloud Confidence Index, the industry’s only objective yardstick adapted from the Cloud Security Alliance. Box is a good fit for our business because it more than satisfies our use cases while also supporting our compliance regimens (e.g., HIPAA compliance, SOC-3, SAS-70/SSAE-16, ISO27001 certifications, etc.) and business continuity requirements.
  2. How Box is used in our organization is a shared responsibility. We need to govern admin and user access and activities to ensure compliance with our corporate and regulatory policies, and for that we use Netskope for Box. Netskope is the leading Cloud Access Security Broker and is the only vendor in its space that can drive consumption in Box through automated user coaching, respect users’ privacy by governing corporate Box while leaving personal Box alone, and enforce policies in Box and its ecosystem of interconnected cloud apps.
  3. We have a robust data security program in which we use Netskope to identify sensitive content in Box on an ongoing basis and secure it. We follow this Cloud DLP Reference Architecture, used by some of the most thoughtful Box customers across financial, manufacturing, and healthcare industries, to find sensitive data in the cloud and leverage our on-premises DLP and incident response systems for the most accurate, efficient cloud data security program in the market.

In the meantime, using Box will make our users and their business partners more collaborative, carry out critical workflows that make our organization more competitive, and put us in the ranks of modern companies whose solution choices send a strong message that they value and want to fully enable their employees, partners, and customers.
