To create a Collaboration policy for files and folders:

  1. Go to Policy > DLP Policies
  2. Click Actions > Sanctioned Policy > Create New Policy
  3. On the Description page, enter a name, description, deployment type, services, and users. 
  4. On the Rules page, select Collaboration
  5. Select Sharing From Anyone
  6. Select Sharing To > Anyone or Specific Users / Domains and add your domain. 
  7. Select a Sharing Permission from the list.  
  8. Click THEN to select a Severity
  9. On the Response page, select a modify permissions response, or quarantine/delete:
    • Select a modify permissions response to enact the policy when a sensitive file is shared with domains that match a policy, or when a shared file is updated with sensitive information:  
      • Set View Only Permissions for
      • Set Edit Permissions for
      • Revoke Sharing for

        IMPORTANT: Policies with a modify permissions response action do not recursively modify permissions on all parent folders that contain a sensitive file.

    • Or select Quarantine or Delete to enact the policy when a sensitive file is shared with domains that match a policy, or when a previously shared file is updated with sensitive content. They are also enacted when a sensitive file is uploaded in a folder that has already been shared with domains that match a policy.
