The integration, offered through Box Governance, is the result of partnerships between Box and Palo Alto Networks, as well as other cybersecurity industry leaders. Palo Alto Networks Aperture™ SaaS security service delivers complete visibility and granular enforcement across all user and data activity within enterprise SaaS applications like Box, providing detailed analysis and analytics on usage without requiring any additional hardware or software.

Today’s organizations understand the high cost of a data breach and the importance of securing personally identifiable information. According to a study published in Dark Reading, 45 percent of businesses believe their greatest security risk comes from their own employees.

Organizations require a secure way to bring together the distributed ecosystems of on-site and remote employees, customers, suppliers, information and applications to enable collaboration and productivity. To minimize the risk of data loss and protect sensitive information, such as employee records and new product specifications, cybersecurity must remain at the forefront of content strategies meant to enable collaboration. Proactive file sharing restrictions and visual file sensitivity indicators can help prevent or eliminate accidental data leaks when enforced properly.

“As companies embark on their digital transformation, IT administrators are building content strategies to enable the secure flow and governance of business information throughout the extended enterprise,” said Naill Wall, SVP, Business Development, Box. “Cloud Content Management is the most secure way to bring the distributed ecosystems together, and our integration with Palo Alto Networks is another proof point of our commitment to providing industry-leading data protection to our customers.”

“Tight integration with the Palo Alto Networks Aperture SaaS security service will allow organizations to securely enable the use of Box by their internal teams,” said Chad Kinzelberg, SVP, Business & Corporate Development, Palo Alto Networks. “Our joint customers can now easily control data sharing, prevent data exfiltration, and deliver real-time enforcement for policy violations, without slowing the pace of business."
