Extending the Security of Box
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, the ability to readily share information, often sensitive information, also further opens the door to security breaches.
And while Box enables you to control who can access and download files from a folder, this ‘access’ control is only applicable as long as files are within the EFSS environment.
What’s really required to fully ensure secure collaboration? Granular control over the ‘usage’ of a file that stays with the file wherever it travels or is stored. This persistent, file-centric control will protect files wherever they go, whether they are stored in the Cloud, on a recipient’s device, or on other servers.
