Box

What is the Box Platform?

Box Platform provides data security, file sharing, collaborating, and content management tools. Box Platform provides access to Box APIs.

Why Should You Use the Box Connector?

The Box connector provides visibility into the assets managed by Box. You can use this visibility to:

  • ensure assets are managed per your security policies

  • monitor each file and application and its status 

How Does This Connector Work?

Lucidum executes read-only requests to the Box REST API and ingests only meta-data about Box devices. Lucidum does not retrieve any data stored on your assets.
