Keeping your information secure is more critical, yet more complex than ever. Today, over 92,000 customers choose Box to power collaborative business processes, while securing valuable intellectual property as it flows across the extended enterprise. For years, we've worked closely with Microsoft to deliver a great user experience for our joint customers – across not only Microsoft Office 365 and Microsoft Azure, but with Microsoft's security products as well.
We are excited to announce that Box is joining the Microsoft Intelligent Security Association (MISA), furthering our commitment to help mutual customers protect their valuable content. MISA is a collaborative program focused on helping organizations worldwide defend against increasingly sophisticated, fast-moving threats with the help of a strong partner ecosystem.
"We are thrilled to join this group of industry-leading companies such as Symantec, Palo Alto Networks, and Adobe in the effort to help organizations reduce risk in the digital age," says Niall Wall, Senior Vice President, Partners at Box. “We are honored to be working with Microsoft to continuously improve our integrations, and deliver the joint solutions our customers demand."
Ryan McGee, Director, Microsoft Security Marketing at Microsoft adds: “Microsoft is pleased to further our relationship with Box to extend our capabilities and improve the cloud security of our mutual customers, complementing Box's native security and privacy capabilities with integrations such as Microsoft Azure Active Directory and Intune."
Today, thousands of customers already leverage our Microsoft integrations to manage and protect users, devices, and activity in Box. For example:
- Azure Active Directory: Customers can use Azure Active Directory to control users' access to Box, enable users to SSO (single sign-on) into Box with their Azure Active Directory accounts, and manage Box accounts in one location with the Azure portal.
- Microsoft Intune: Securely manage the Box for EMM mobile app across iOS and Android devices. Customers can restrict Box usage to company-approved devices, ensure devices comply with Intune policies, and use Intune to deploy, manage, or remote-wipe the Box app.
- Microsoft Cloud App Security: Connect Box to Microsoft's CASB to apply additional controls and enable visibility across Box and other applications. You can monitor user activities, identify overexposed files, apply DLP policies to pre-existing and newly uploaded data and block downloads to unmanaged devices in real-time.
"I'm excited that Box and Microsoft are working together on content security," says Youssef Oujdi, Global Senior Manager, Cyber Security at Alvarez & Marsal. "We have a strong relationship with both companies, and look forward to further innovations that address business requirements.”
At Box, our mission is to power how the world works together, and we look forward to working with Microsoft to deliver a secure, powerful combination for digital transformation. Stay tuned for more updates over the coming months!
