REDWOOD CITY, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Box, Inc. (NYSE:BOX) today announced updates to its Trust Partner Program, which brings together a select group of industry-leading security and compliance platforms to advance security in the enterprise. These updates include new and deepened integrations with Cisco, Relativity, Theta Lake, and Splunk that extend Box’s native security and compliance capabilities to an ecosystem of solutions, helping customers connect and protect their content across multiple applications. Box also announced new security enhancements to its core platform that will help admins and security teams protect the flow of content inside and outside of the organization and across multiple devices.

“The security landscape is evolving faster than ever before, with hybrid work introducing new security risks, and businesses implementing multiple solutions to combat cyber threats,” said Diego Dugatkin, Chief Product Officer at Box. “To meet the changing needs of the enterprise, we are thrilled to deliver a set of integrations that enrich our partner ecosystem while also bolstering the Box Content Cloud’s core security posture. With these advancements, Box is setting a new standard for security in the cloud and is making it easier than ever for customers to use Box alongside best-in-class security solutions to protect and secure their data.”

Originally launched in 2014, Box has built an ecosystem of over 20 security, governance, and compliance partners through its Box Trust Partner Program and serves as the single layer that protects and connects content across multiple applications. To meet the evolving threat landscape, today Box is strengthening the Box Trust Partner Program with the following new and enhanced integrations:

Box and Cisco:

This week at the RSA Conference, Box and Cisco will demonstrate a post-login authentication scenario in which a user’s security posture changes after their initial login. If a user exhibits suspicious behavior based on pre-configured security policies, Cisco Secure Access by Duo sends Box a signal that triggers a user session termination. This integration leverages the Continuous Access Evaluation Protocol (CAEP), which is part of the OpenID Shared Signals and Events framework, making it easier to share signals across the security ecosystem.

“As more organizations move to hybrid modes of working, we want to make it easy to dynamically detect and respond to risk across our environments – instead of siloing signals in specific applications or vendors,” said Jeetu Patel, Executive Vice President and General Manager of Security and Collaboration at Cisco. “Expanding our partnership with Box is critical to this experience and delivering on our promise to integrate with applications our customers use the most.”
