FinalCode for Box
New FinalCode for Box allows users to seamlessly manage or change permissions to view or edit files outside the secure Box container by invoking FinalCode controls within the Box interface. By simply updating Box collaborator type permissions, which are dynamically linked to FinalCode’s file access and usage control, organizations gain a high level of usability without affecting their collaboration workflow. Furthermore, with FinalCode’s file tracking and remote deletion features, users can prevent data leakage from files outside the secure Box container that may be obtained through cyber-attack or unauthorized access. As a result, file security is fortified and remains persistent as an option for organizations using Box Business edition or Enterprise edition.
“In today’s collaborative work environments, content access and fluidity is critical. As enterprise employees look to collaborate internally and externally, both IT and business users want better options for using and securing data,” said Christian Christiansen, program vice president, IDC Security Products. “We believe that many organizations suffer information leaks each year. Cloud storage and collaboration solutions increase the risk of intentional and accidental disclosure of sensitive information. There are organizational benefits to approaches that augment file security controls and support corporate governance requirements while supporting workflows, collaborative services, and sanctioned cloud storage services.”
“Box file control and security management features are comprehensive. Like many file collaboration methods, once a sensitive file is obtained by an authorized recipient and is outside a secure repository or container, protection and accountability are diminished, as are data privacy breach safe harbors,” said Gord Boyce, CEO of FinalCode, Inc. “FinalCode offers a simple, flexible and cost-effective way for users to leverage their Box investment, while enabling file security controls to persist outside the secure Box container.”
FinalCode for Box is delivered as a SaaS application that integrates with a company’s Box Business or Enterprise Edition. The FinalCode for Box application, an option to the file control and management features of Box, starts at annual subscription price of $12 per user per month. The FinalCode add-on for Box allows current FinalCode users to extend interoperability with Box starting at $4 per user per month. The FinalCode client, used by Box recipients, is available at no charge for external collaborators and supports Windows, Apple and Android devices. Prospective Box Business or Enterprise Edition customers are invited to take FinalCode for Box for a test drive by registering at http://www.finalcode/en/box/.
