Storing files safely in the cloud is one of the foundations of remote work. File sharing platforms like Box were popular before the pandemic for their ease of use and collaboration between users anywhere in the world. Now that we’re living and working in a world where remote work is the norm, they’ve become essential pieces of digital infrastructure. This means it’s even more important than ever to validate that the services we use for file sharing and cloud storage follow strict security and compliance policies. 

Files stored in Box will often include personal information like personally identifiable information (PII), credentials, email addresses, and other sensitive data. Healthcare providers using Box likely see protected health information (PHI) such as patient names, health insurance claim numbers, or phone numbers contained in their files.

Storing files in Box without proper security measures in place can increase the risk of data loss and exposure, as well as compliance risks with HIPAA, PCI, SOC 2, and other regimes. Protecting sensitive customer and corporate data in Box is an important part of your cloud security strategy. Do you know how to find what sensitive data is stored in files in your Box instances? Nightfall makes it easy to find the data you must protect with the Box DLP Scanner.

The Box DLP Scanner is built on the Nightfall Developer Platform to help organizations scan and audit their messages for existing sensitive information. The scanner classifies data throughout your entire Box instance, using a broad set of pre-built detectors spanning PII, PHI, and PCI, plus custom detectors, exclusion/context rules, and other detectors you can define to accurately find violations with machine learning. You can customize detection using a free Nightfall Developer Platform account — current Nightfall customers can apply their existing detection rules from existing integrations to scan data in Box as well.

The Box DLP scanner is a free tool built on the Nightfall Developer Platform. Start scanning your Box instances to get a report on the sensitive information and potential violations that may already exist.
