Extending the Security of Box EFSS with Rights Management
Box, and other Enterprise File Synch and Share (EFSS) solutions, make it easy to share information and engage in external collaboration with third parties such as vendors, sub-contractors, advisors, prospects, and suppliers. However, this ability, and need, to readily share information also opens the door to data loss.
While Box enables you to control who can access and download files from a folder, this ‘access’ control is only applicable while files are within the EFSS environment. What’s really required to fully ensure secure collaboration is attaching granular usage controls to the file. The persistent, file-centric usage controls will protect files wherever they go, whether they are stored in the Cloud, on a recipient’s device, or on other servers.
Documents get automatically protected with persistent, granular usage controls as they travel from the owner’s desktop, through Box, to the recipient.
Policy Federation ensures that permissions on files are fetched in real-time from Box and synchronized with Seclore Rights Management each time the protected file is opened. A change in Box’s file permissions will automatically apply on all protected files immediately.
Recipients can readily authenticate using SSO or Google Authentication and can access a protected file via a browser or light-weight agent to ensure wide-spread adoption.
Regulatory compliance is simplified with end-to-end file-usage auditing – even for information residing outside the enterprise perimeter.
The Value of Connectors
By connecting rights management directly with existing systems, you will dramatically accelerate the on-going protection of sensitive information and rapidly close your security gaps. Imagine turning on your rights management system and on day one, protecting hundreds of documents without employee intervention. That is the power of seamless connectivity.
