Skyhigh for Dropbox

Unlock the benefits of cloud-based file sharing and collaboration while meeting data security, compliance, and governance requirements

Enforce data loss prevention policies in Dropbox

Skyhigh enforces DLP polices across data stored in Dropbox to ensure compliance with regulations and internal policies. Skyhigh supports DLP rules based on keywords, data identifiers, user groups, and regular expressions. Enforcement actions include coach users, notify administrator, quarantine, tombstone, and delete. Leverage pre-built industry templates, create custom policies in Skyhigh, or leverage policies in an existing on-premises DLP solution.

Unified DLP reporting and remediation

Skyhigh reports on DLP violations in Dropbox and other cloud services in a unified interface with highlighted excerpts revealing the exact content that triggered the DLP policy. During review, if a file does not violate a policy, the reviewer can rollback the remediation action to restore the file and/or its sharing permissions. Quarantined files are stored in a secure account within Dropbox, not in Skyhigh’s platform, for added security.

Deep integration with on-premises DLP solutions

With Skyhigh you have the option to leverage our best-in-class DLP engine or the policies in your existing on-premises solution such as Symantec DLP, Intel McAfee DLP, Forcepoint DLP, and more. Skyhigh optionally performs a first-pass content inspection, brokers inspection by the on-premises solution, acts as an enforcement point to apply policies to data in the cloud, and registers enforcement in the on-premises solution that maintains the policy.

Detect internal and external threats

Skyhigh captures a complete record of all user activity in Dropbox and leverages machine learning to analyze activity across multiple heuristics and accurately detect threats. As a comprehensive cloud security platform, Skyhigh can detect cross-cloud threats that involve usage in Dropbox and other cloud services. As threats are resolved, Skyhigh automatically incorporates this data into its behavioral models to improve detection accuracy.

Insider and privileged user threats

Skyhigh automatically constructs a behavior model with dynamic and continuously updated thresholds for each user and team to identify activity indicative of insider threat, whether the threat is accidental or malicious. Privileged User Analytics identifies risk from dormant administrator accounts, excessive permissions, and unnecessary escalation of privileges and user provisioning.

Compromised accounts

Skyhigh detects compromised account activity in Dropbox based on brute force login attempts, logins from new and untrusted locations for a user, and consecutive login attempts from two locations in a time period that implies impossible travel, even if the two logins occur across two cloud services. Darknet Intelligence reveals user accounts for sale online that are at risk of compromise.


Analyze sharing and enforce collaboration policies

Skyhigh audits collaboration activity and visually summarizes all sharing events within the organization, with partners, with personal emails, and via untraceable shared links. Secure Collaboration enforces collaboration policies based on sharing activity and document content and can take action by modifying permissions and revoking links.

“Skyhigh allows us to extend DLP outside the perimeter and into the cloud and the user experience is seamless.”

Mike Benson, Chief Information Officer

“In an environment with millions of unique events each day, Skyhigh does a nice job of cutting through the noise and directing us to the areas of greatest security concern.”

Ralph Loura, Chief Information Officer

“When IT can bring the audit committee and executive members together and they are comfortable using the cloud, it is huge. Skyhigh is mitigating and lowering risk. It's a fact.”

Jeff Haskill, Chief Information Security Officer

“We’re seeing both costs and risk go down as a result of our work with Skyhigh.”

Mike Bartholomy, Senior Manager of Information Security

Make Dropbox your corporate standard

Skyhigh identifies all file sharing and collaboration solutions that employees use in place of the corporate standard, Dropbox, and provides a risk rating for each service. Using Skyhigh, you can enforce risk-based governance controls and coach users to Dropbox to improve collaboration while also reducing cost and risk.

Key Features

Shadow IT Discovery

Identifies any shadow IT cloud services employees are using in place of the corporate standard, Dropbox.

Coaching and Enforcement

Displays just-in-time coaching messages guiding users from unapproved services to Dropbox and enforces granular policies such as read-only access.

On-Demand Data Scan

Identifies sensitive data stored at rest in Dropbox with the ability to schedule periodic scans based on date range, user, sharing status, and file size.

Usage Analytics

Identifies all users and groups accessing Dropbox and reveals which users are accessing sensitive data.

Collaboration Analytics

Visually summarizes sharing with third-party business partners, personal emails, and internal users and reports on policy exceptions.

User Groups

Discovers and groups users from directory services and Dropbox. User groups can be leveraged for analytics and policy enforcement.

Dropbox SOC

Delivers a threat protection dashboard and incident-response workflow for potential insider threats, privileged user threats, and compromised accounts.

Threat Modelling

Correlates multiple anomalous events within Dropbox or across Dropbox and other cloud services to accurately separate true threats from simple anomalies.

User Behavior Analytics

Automatically builds a self-learning model based on multiple heuristics and identifies patterns of activity indicative of a malicious or negligent insider threat.

Account Access Analytics

Analyzes login attempts to identify impossible cross-region access, brute- force attacks, and untrusted locations indicative of compromised accounts.

Privileged User Analytics

Identifies excessive user permissions, zombie administrator accounts, inappropriate access to data, and unwarranted escalation of privileges and user provisioning.

Configurable Sensitivity

Provides an adjustable sensitivity scale for each anomaly type with real-time preview showing the impact of a change on anomalies detected by the system.

Cloud Activity Monitoring

Provides a comprehensive audit trail of all user and administrator activities to support post-incident investigations and forensics.

Darknet Intelligence

Identifies stolen credentials acquired in phishing attacks and leaked from breached cloud services to reveal users and services at risk.

Cloud Data Loss Prevention

Enforces DLP policies based on data identifiers, keywords, user groups, and regular expressions with multiple remediation options.

Secure Collaboration

Enforces external sharing policies based on domain whitelist/blacklist and content and educates users on acceptable collaboration policies.

Multimode DLP

Enforces data loss prevention policies for data stored at rest in Dropbox and data uploaded or shared in real time.

Next Generation DLP Engine

Provides a native cloud DLP engine designed for DLP, resulting in greater accuracy and fewer false positives/negatives than third-party engines built for search.

Multi-Tier Remediation
