Skyhigh Networks Unveils Skyhigh Secure for Box

Skyhigh Networks, the cloud visibility and enablement company, today announced Skyhigh Secure for Box, the most scalable data loss prevention (DLP) solution on the market for organizations using Box. Skyhigh Secure for Box enables customers to extend their existing on-premise DLP capabilities to Box, protecting sensitive data such as personally identifiable information (PII), personal health information (PHI) as well as customer, financial, and proprietary data. Now, users can unlock the benefits of cloud-based content sharing and collaboration from Box, while ensuring compliance with both internal policies and external regulatory requirements, such as PCI, HIPAA, and HITECH.

“At Box, we’re redefining the standards for content security in the cloud for our customers through ongoing investments in product technology, infrastructure and strategic partnerships,” said Justin Somaini, Chief Trust Officer at Box. “Skyhigh Secure for Box is a comprehensive DLP solution for our customers because it protects data from loss and provides IT teams with unparalleled visibility into how sensitive content is shared in the cloud.”

Skyhigh Secure for Box scans documents as soon as they are uploaded to Box. If a document contains information that violates an organization’s data governance policy, then Skyhigh automatically triggers appropriate actions, such as alerting, blocking, and quarantining. Skyhigh Secure for Box can also enable content inspection by an on-premise DLP solution, including those from Symantec, EMC RSA, and McAfee. By integrating with on-premise DLP solutions, Skyhigh Secure for Box allows customers to leverage their existing investments in those technologies, while also aligning with their existing remediation processes.

“Box is one of the most enterprise-ready file sharing and collaboration services on the market today. However, companies still need to make sure that employees’ use of cloud services complies with international, federal, and state regulations,” said Rajiv Gupta, founder and CEO of Skyhigh Networks. “Skyhigh Secure enables organizations to seamlessly enforce their privacy, security, and compliance policies without requiring any change to the service provider or any friction to the end-user.”

Skyhigh Secure for Box provides the following capabilities:

  • Enforce data loss prevention policies and ensure compliance: Skyhigh CloudDLP™ is the only cloud-based data loss prevention solution that can be deployed inline or offline. A range of remediation actions are supported, including alerting, blocking, and quarantining.
  • Extend existing on-premise data loss prevention policies to Box: Skyhigh integrates with on-premise DLP solutions including those from Symantec, EMC RSA, and McAfee, enabling organizations to extend their existing DLP policies to content in Box.
  • Respond to incidents and protect data from unauthorized access: Skyhigh Application Auditing provides a comprehensive audit trail of all actions in Box, including all uploads and downloads of documents as well as view, edit, delete, and move actions, all within the unified Skyhigh dashboard.
  • Receive alerts based on anomalous activity: Skyhigh automatically develops behavioral baselines and identifies anomalous activity. Administrators can set policy thresholds and instantaneous or scheduled alerts.
  • Support BYOD and enable secure mobile-to-cloud access to Box: Skyhigh enforces access control policies without requiring a device agent or VPN connection. Skyhigh also integrates with your SAML v2 compatible single sign-on services.

Skyhigh Secure for Box is generally available to customers today.
