The following is a guest post from Jake White, VP of Marketing for FileTrek, one of Box’s newest partners for content tracking, forensics and reporting. This article is the third in a series about security, collaboration, and content in the cloud.
For years, IT departments have tried to get a handle on so-called "black holes," areas where there is limited or no visibility into how employees are handling and manipulating sensitive data. With CIOs increasingly tasked to enable collaboration, mobile access, and innovation, lack of access to this important information can cause enormous tension between the need to move business forward and the need to protect sensitive information and manage regulatory compliance.
With FileTrek, Box customers get a new and powerful approach to monitoring content as it’s created, edited, and shared throughout the enterprise. FileTrek’s tool gathers and analyzes the metadata in a file to identify the relationships between people, data and devices, giving IT deep insight into content-level activity, no matter where the document lives. This type of actionable information is unavailable within traditional security solutions like DLP and SIEM.
FileTrek’s collaboration with Box also allows users of both services to get cloud-to-endpoint file tracking and reporting of files in Box, as well as content downloaded to any device. File-handling activities are even tracked when a user is offline or off-network. With this new combination, everyone gets what they want: employees can collaborate freely, and IT professionals can maintain comprehensive audit trails of their most sensitive documents.
When you put your data in motion with Box, you can now rely on FileTrek to ensure your important documents stay secure. To receive additional information or schedule a demo, please contact the team at firstname.lastname@example.org.
