We discovered an unexpected behavior in the Move, Copy, and Share actions from the edit menu in the Files app that is allowing content from Managed Apps to be passed to Unmanaged Apps.

 

We will introduce the ability to limit this unexpected behavior in the Admin Console under the Mobile tab. By enabling this feature, we will automatically disable Files functionality for unprotected versions of iOS and automatically reenable the Files functionality when a protected version of iOS comes online. Enabling this feature means that some workflows might be affected because of turning off the Files functionality.

 

Workflow Example
Checkbox off
Checkbox on
Work-around
Being able to see Box Files on the iOS Files app
End-user is able to see managed files on iOS Files App
End-user is unable to see managed files on iOS Files App
None at this time
Attaching a Box File to an email through the iOS Mail email client 
User is able to attach a file through the iOS Sharesheet 
User is unable to attach a file through the iOS Sharesheet in Mail
  • Use a shared-link instead of attaching a file 
  • Invite the user to a file as a collaborator (permission determined by you)
Opening an iWork file from Box into an iWork iOS app (Presentation, etc.) User is able to open an iWork file in an iWork iOS App (Presentation, etc.) User is not able to open an iWork file in an iWork iOS App (Presentation, etc.) None at this time

 

We will also be creating a Security Log through the Events API. Within Admin Insights, users will be able to run a report to see the audit log. This feature will launch a month later after the feature launch itself. We will expose the ability to run the report after the Files functionality launch.
