Cloud Storage and Collaboration Meet Security, Compliance and DLP: Box and Proofpoint Team Up
Our friends at content sharing leader Box issued a press release about ongoing efforts to improve enterprise adoption of its service by improving visibility and security for files stored in Box's cloud.
A significant part of that effort involves an integration partnership between Proofpoint and Box that extends Proofpoint's cloud-based data loss prevention (DLP) capabilities to content stored in Box. Using these new features, administrators will be able to ensure compliance with a wide variety of corporate policies, comply with data protection/privacy regulations and guard against the loss or exposure of confidential information.
As Proofpoint CEO Gary Steele explained to CIO Today, "We are delivering an advanced layer of security capabilities that enable enterprises to have a full view of what is happening with sensitive information across their organization."
Gary will be talking more about this partnership during a panel discussion at the upcoming Box customer conference, BoxWorks.
