In May, we will be releasing new malware detection and controls in Box Shield, to help our customers reduce risk and combat rising attacks.
- When Box Shield detects that a file uploaded contains malware, it will automatically label the file as malicious, and restrict downloads and local editing to prevent the spread to more users and devices. Users can safely preview and even edit the file online, while seeing a malware notification in the Box UI.
- Shield will also generate a detailed security alert, so security and IT teams can quickly evaluate and act on the issue. The alert will show you who uploaded the file, threat intelligence about the malware, and file-related activities to date, helping your team decide what response is needed. These alerts are viewable in the Shield dashboard, including summary modules.
