Box security for your best collaborators

Netskope helps you govern usage and data in Box

Netskope for Box

Box is a global leader in enterprise file synchronization and sharing, and has developed a highly secure cloud collaboration platform. However, cloud security is a shared responsibility between cloud providers like Box and their customers. Even the most secure platform is at risk if your users are not using it properly. Netskope, a certified member of the Box Trust Program and recipient of the prestigious Box Customer Transformation Partner of the Year award, enhances Box security by helping you understand and control risky activities in Box, protect sensitive data, and stop cloud threats.

Netskope for Box provides you real-time, granular visibility and control of Box and its associated ecosystem services. Netskope offers a full array of deployment modes to provide rich, contextual details around Box usage including user, service, device, location, activity, and content. Automated workflows include options for changing access permissions, quarantining sensitive or threatening files, and alerting users with customized coaching messages. We can help you standardize on Box by coaching users to the platform from unsanctioned alternatives, and also allow you to differentiate between your sanctioned and personal instances of Box and apply the right policy in each case. With Netskope, your organization can get the most out of Box while keeping it safe and compliant.

Key Features

All-mode architecture

The unique Netskope all-mode architecture offers you a full array of deployment options to gain visibility and control of Box as well as its ecosystem of connected services, whether your users are on premises or remote, using a web browser, mobile app, or sync client. Options include out-of-band API introspection into Box as well as forward and reverse proxy modes for real-time policy controls for Box and its ecosystem.

  • API introspection provides direct, out-of-band connection into Box
  • Reverse proxy covers Box access from outside your network
  • Forward proxy covers any cloud service, including Box and its ecosystem
  • Different modes can be combined to expand your coverage
Context and control

Netskope gives you granular visibility and control of Box and its ecosystem of connected services. Rather than take a coarse-grained approach by blocking services entirely, Netskope gives you a deep understanding of your Box usage and allows you to define targeted security policies based on identity, service, activity, and data.

  • Policy actions include block, alert, encrypt, quarantine, and coach
  • Distinguish between different Box instances
  • Mitigate risk of inappropriate sharing and public links
  • Mix and match policy elements to carve out risk without blocking services
Comprehensive DLP

Netskope DLP protects sensitive data in the cloud with accuracy and precision, with the ability to inspect all sanctioned and unsanctioned cloud services as well as traffic to websites. Sensitive content is detected across 1,000+ file types and across structured and unstructured data, using 3,000+ data identifiers, metadata extraction, proximity analysis, fingerprinting, exact match, and more.

  • Control sensitive data in Box and en route to and from all cloud services
  • Get the highest degree of accuracy with fingerprinting and exact match
  • Further increase accuracy with keyword dictionaries, global data identifiers, and more
  • Target DLP policies using context like user, group, device, service, and activity

Netskope can quickly detect, prevent, and remediate the effects of cloud threats, which too often evade existing security solutions.

Top Use Cases

Secure data

Detect sensitive content at rest in Box or en route to or from any cloud service or website with DLP. Define granular policies – based on identity, service, activity and data – to automatically protect your data by blocking activities, restricting access, encrypting data, and more.

Control access

Detect all access to Box, regardless of where your users are located or what device they are using. Apply the appropriate access control policy based on the situation. For example, allow users on unmanaged devices to view content in Box but restrict other activities such as downloads and shares to protect sensitive data.

Stop threats

Box makes it easy to share, but this same capability makes cloud services like Box an attractive target for malicious actors. Protect your organization from cloud threats such as malware and ransomware and also detect unusual data movement or user activity that could indicate the presence of an active threat in your environment.

Prevent data loss

Netskope provides a unique vantage point across all of your cloud services to help you detect data movement that could signal a data exfiltration attempt by an insider. Netskope anomaly detection combined with our DLP capabilities can correlate the download of sensitive data from Box with the upload of the same data to a personal cloud service.

Coach users

Make your users part of your Box security solution. Netskope provides your users with automated, customized coaching messages to address undesirable cloud activities. For example, you can coach them to use Box when they try to use a personal cloud storage service, or warn them about sensitive data handling policies when they try to upload sensitive data to a risky cloud service.
