Skyhigh CASB for Box Collaboration Policies

Skyhigh CASB for Box helps prevent data loss by enabling you to restrict all kinds of collaboration on content stored in Box. Skyhigh CASB 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, Sanctioned 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.

The Modify Permissions response action has been broken up into three different response actions:

  1. Set View Only Permissions for
  2. Set Edit Permissions for
  3. Revoke Sharing for

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