Box Shield has enabled Monitoring Mode for Shared Link restriction in access policies, expanding the range of security controls that Box Admins are able to test without enforcing.
Monitoring Mode for security controls in access policies enables admins to monitor their employees’ access to sensitive content before enforcing those security controls. By providing visibility into potential security violations, Monitoring Mode allows admins to fully assess business impact, get alignment with business owners, and fine tune the access policies, as needed, before rolling them out, accelerating the implementation of policies for frictionless security and compliance.
By enabling Monitoring Mode for Shared Link restriction, admins are empowered to understand how Shared Links are distributed and used without actually restricting usage. Instead, when a Shared Link is used in a way that would trigger the restriction, the action is logged and is available via Event API for ingestion. Admins can then assess over time whether the restriction would be overly prohibitive (or not restrictive enough) for the organization’s business needs.
