MVISION Cloud for Box Collaboration Policies

MVISION Cloud for Box helps prevent data loss by enabling you to restrict all kinds of collaboration on content stored in Box. MVISION Cloud DLP Collaboration Policies for Box gives you control to apply restrictions on all files/folders or only files/folders with sensitive information. There are two policy categories from this perspective:

  • Pure Collaboration. Restricts collaboration on any file/folder irrespective of the content.
  • Content-Aware Collaboration. Restricts collaboration on files/folders with sensitive content.

Use Policies to Remove Shared Links or Modify Permissions

Public Shared links or Organization level shared links on any file or folder, including folders that contain sensitive content, can be removed in near real time by configuring an On-Demand Scan with a DLP Collaboration policy. You can use this method to remove any existing or old shared links.

Also, DLP Collaboration policies allow you to remove permissions. Editing, viewing, or all permissions for collaborators on any file or folder, or any file or folder with sensitive content, can be removed in near real time by configuring an On-Demand Scan. You can use this method to remove any existing or old collaborator permissions without the need to go back and check.

* Only some trigger actions are supported

 

Content aware collaboration and trigger actions identify the actions that should be allowed, depending on the type of content in a file or folder.

Create a Shared Link Collaboration Policy

When a shared link is generated on a file with sensitive content, or when a file with an existing shared link is edited by adding sensitive content, Shared Link policies allow you to remove a shared link, which stops the file from being shared.
