Box Extends Security Across the Content Lifecycle

New Partnerships and Product Innovations Advance Mobile Device Security, Data Loss Prevention and Real-Time Reporting

LOS ALTOS, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 02/25/13 -- Box today unveiled new enterprise-grade security features and product integrations that protect the entire content lifecycle, enabling organizations to manage users, devices and apps, while providing critical business intelligence and instant access to data analytics. New product integrations with Samsung, Code Green Networks, CipherCloud and GoodData will ensure that every interaction with a file is secure and will give businesses complete visibility into those activities.

"By moving content and collaboration to the cloud, organizations are unlocking massive productivity gains -- but these gains cannot come at the cost of security and manageability," said Aaron Levie, co-founder and CEO of Box. "We've built a deep expertise in securing information across the entire content lifecycle, and we're investing aggressively in new product innovations and integrations that enable all new controls and intelligence. Enterprises are putting tens of thousands of employees on Box, and providing the security and scalability they require while preserving an amazing end user experience is a challenge that our entire company is focused on."

Box is deeply committed to providing the security and visibility that enterprises require. On February 12, 2013, Box received the highest possible rating, "Strong Positive," in Gartner's "MarketScope for Enterprise File Synchronization and Sharing (EFSS)." According to the report, "Security, compliance and management are top priorities for IT organizations in EFSS, as well as in mobile device management (MDM)." Gartner also added, "organizations planning BYOD initiatives should include file synchronization and sharing requirements in conjunction with MDM."

Some of the world's largest businesses including, Electronic Arts, McCann Worldgroup, NBC Sports, Netflix and Sunbelt Rentals trust Box to power secure content collaboration. Mobility and the cloud have transformed how IT admins protect business critical information while enabling today's knowledge workers to be more productive and effective in their roles. Box is delivering security controls across the entire content lifecycle, addressing users, devices, content intelligence, analytics and reporting.

User Security

  • Admin Controls for External Collaborators: Box is introducing a new control that allows admins to restrict individual users in their enterprise from creating externally shared folders. This enhancement gives IT and admins powerful, granular control over what content is shared externally or kept within the company for added security.

Device Security

  • Device Pinning: Available in the next two weeks across Box's leading mobile apps, including iOS, Android, Windows Phone, Windows 8 and on its popular desktop application, device pinning allows IT admins the ability to limit from which devices users can access Box, ensuring trusted access to Box content on IT-approved devices.

  • Samsung KNOX: Box is one of the first business applications available on and integrated with Samsung KNOX, an end-to-end secure solution that provides security hardening from the hardware through to the application layer. The integration provides enhanced security at all levels of the Android platform with simple and flexible device management that allows users to easily separate their work and personal lives on their mobile device.

  • Login Security: Box is introducing an enhanced security detection algorithm, which will automatically detect and prevent unexpected user logins.

Content Security
Box is announcing new partnerships with Code Green Networks and CipherCloud to protect against the loss of confidential and restricted data. These new security integrations enable admins to easily scan and identify restricted content and secure that information in Box's shared folders. Additionally, using the Box API, CipherCloud and Code Green Networks can identify when a new file is uploaded to Box, at which point the services will download and scan the content. Both services can identify dangerous content and alert an admin to place the file in quarantine for added data protection.

  • CipherCloud provides data loss prevention solutions to scan, detect and take action to protect sensitive organizational information, providing an additional level of security and control for business collaboration and content sharing on Box while retaining functionality. CipherCloud also provides cloud information protection, malware detection, and cloud user activity auditing through an open platform that enables organizations to securely adopt cloud applications by eliminating concerns about data privacy, residency, security, and regulatory compliance while preserving cloud application usability and functionality.

  • Code Green Networks delivers data loss prevention solutions that protect private employee and customer information. The Code Green solution safeguards intellectual property across all electronic communications channels. The company's content inspection appliances rapidly detect and prevent potential data leaks, helping organizations automate compliance and mitigate risks from internal breaches.

Content Intelligence and Reporting
Box is helping businesses consolidate reporting across all applications through a new integration with GoodData. The integration provides an out-of-the-box analytics experience delivering best practices, KPIs and dashboards for content management, helping Box customers measure critical content metrics, including top performing content, security risks, adoption and engagement.

The Internet of Things (IoT), in all its myriad manifestations, has great potential. Much of that potential comes from the evolving data management and analytic (DMA) technologies and processes that allow us to gain insight from all of the IoT data that can be generated and gathered. This potential may never be met as those data sets are tied to specific industry verticals and single markets, with no clear way to use IoT data and sensor analytics to fulfill the hype being given the IoT today.
More and more brands have jumped on the IoT bandwagon. We have an excess of wearables – activity trackers, smartwatches, smart glasses and sneakers, and more that track seemingly endless datapoints. However, most consumers have no idea what “IoT” means. Creating more wearables that track data shouldn't be the aim of brands; delivering meaningful, tangible relevance to their users should be. We're in a period in which the IoT pendulum is still swinging. Initially, it swung toward "smart for smar...

A critical component of any IoT project is what to do with all the data being generated. This data needs to be captured, processed, structured, and stored in a way to facilitate different kinds of queries. Traditional data warehouse and analytical systems are mature technologies that can be used to handle certain kinds of queries, but they are not always well suited to many problems, particularly when there is a need for real-time insights.
DevOps is being widely accepted (if not fully adopted) as essential in enterprise IT. But as Enterprise DevOps gains maturity, expands scope, and increases velocity, the need for data-driven decisions across teams becomes more acute. DevOps teams in any modern business must wrangle the ‘digital exhaust’ from the delivery toolchain, "pervasive" and "cognitive" computing, APIs and services, mobile devices and applications, the Internet of Things, and now even blockchain. In this power panel at @...
