Can you see risky user behavior in Box?

A user creating a shared link to a file in Box may not be concerning on its own. But a watchlist user sharing Box links from a new geolocation after accessing sensitive customer data for the first time is.

Varonis gives you the ability to quickly correlate alerts in your cloud and on-prem environments to user behavior in Box.

Shared links created by disabled or stale AD users

Box file downloads by users who triggered brute-force or geohopping alerts
