There are over a thousand third-party applications that have been written for Box. Institutional data is subject to certain safeguards, restrictions, regulatory and statutory rules; and most third-party Box apps are not in compliance with these standards. These Third-party apps that work with Box may make copies of files or take data completely out of our protected Box environment and onto that company’s application servers. Some third-party apps may leave data unencrypted while in transit. UCLA's contract does not extend to those companies or applications, so their use for Internal/Controlled or Restricted institutional data is not allowed. The apps listed in the section above are official Box applications and fall under the provisions and safeguards of our Box contract; in addition Assured Apps also fall under the contract provisions.
