The AlienApp for Box enables you to automate threat detection and incident response between USM Anywhere and Box environments, helping you investigate and contain Box security threats quickly. When USM Anywhere alerts you to potential threats such as credential abuse, data exfiltration, or malware infection within your Box deployments, you can launch a response action within Box directly from the alarm in USM Anywhere.

The AlienApp for Box enables Box security monitoring within the same console as the rest of your critical IT environments across the cloud and on premises.

With the AlienApp for Box, you can detect and respond to Box security threats such as:

  • Password spraying against Box Enterprise
  • Successful brute force authentication attacks
  • Ransomware and other malware infections
  • Data exfiltration or sharing with a known malicious host
  • Anomalous user activities that could indicate an attack

How it works

  1. USM Anywhere continually monitors your Box Enterprise environment, collecting and analyzing Box.com security data such as authentication events, user profile updates, user state changes, application and group assignment, and Box platform changes.
  2. With integrated threat intelligence from AT&T Alien Labs, USM Anywhere automatically detects potential threats against your Box Enterprise environment, such as password spraying or authentication from a known malicious host, and raises alarms to notify you.
  3. In response to an alarm, you can create an automated (or manual) response action that sends a command to Box based on the Box security event.
  4. Based on that command, Box creates a new task or deactivates the affected Box account.
