Work today happens faster than ever, and that makes the challenge of protecting your most sensitive data even more complex. As your valuable information flows in and out of the organization — across teams, partners, vendors, and customers — the old-school approach to information security doesn't get the job done. That's why we built Box Shield, which lets you reduce risk and protect the flow of information without slowing down your business.
Classify your critical content
From PII to patient healthcare data to confidential finance documents, Box Shield lets you classify files and folders your way: manually or automatically. These labels, which are visible within Box, educate teams about your company's security policies. Plus, classifying your content helps you enforce the appropriate security controls.
Prevent data leaks and drive productivity
Human error and malicious behavior cause 90% of all cyber claims. But your business doesn't have to be part of that statistic. Box Shield allows you to place security controls close to your content, which prevent leaks in real time while powering a simple, frictionless end-user experience. Our classification-based controls can be configured in minutes, so you protect your most valuable data while letting people do their mission-critical work.

Empower your security team with intelligent detection
Bandwidth is a top concern for security teams — you simply don't have the time to monitor everyone for suspicious behavior. Box Shield uses machine learning and a deep understanding of how people collaborate on Box to bring you timely, accurate alerts on insider threats and account compromise. You can quickly evaluate alerts in Box Shield, or send them out to your existing tools for further analysis.
"At IU, sensitive information changes hands with over 100,000 users and thousands of collaborators around the world. Box Shield enables us to protect content with precision so we reduce risk without compromising speed and collaboration."
