Skyhigh Networks, a provider of cloud access security applications, has released a data loss prevention (DLP) solution for organisations using Box software.
Skyhigh Secure for Box allows users to share files and collaborate on Box while it protects data including personally identifiable information (PII) as well as health, financial and proprietary data, claims the firm.
It added that the solution also ensures that an organisation's internal policies comply with regulatory requirements.
The solution, which integrates with SAML v2 compatible single sign-on services, scans documents as soon as they are uploaded to Box.
If a document contains information that violates internal policies, then Skyhigh automatically alerts users, said the company.
Rajiv Gupta, founder and CEO of Skyhigh Networks, said: "Box is the most enterprise-ready file sharing and collaboration service on the market today. However, companies still need to make sure that employees' use of cloud services complies with international, federal, and state regulations.
"Skyhigh Secure enables organisations to seamlessly enforce their privacy, security, and compliance policies without requiring any change to the service provider or any friction to the end-user."
His firm also released a cloud data protection system back in August that aimed to introduce a level of consistency for data protection policies in virtualised environments.
Justin Somaini, CTO at Box, added: "At Box, we're redefining the standards for content security in the cloud for our customers through ongoing investments in product technology, infrastructure and strategic partnerships.
"Skyhigh Secure for Box serves the needs of the most complex organisations and their users by protecting data from loss and providing IT teams with unparalleled visibility into how sensitive content is shared in the cloud."
