WatchDox, Inc. Key Developments

WatchDox and Symantec DLP Deliver First Integrated Solution to Find Sensitive Files Everywhere on Every Device

WatchDox announced the solution to both detect and protect sensitive files everywhere, on every device. Via a comprehensive integration with Symantec DLP, WatchDox can now automatically and proactively protect sensitive files detected in motion on networks or emails, at rest in file shares and other repositories, and created on both mobile and PC endpoints. With this joint solution, IT and security teams can now apply data-centric controls to sensitive files on the fly, including encryption, digital rights management, tracking and revocation, which continue to apply wherever the files travel. When traditional DLP identifies potentially sensitive data on the move, it is flagged for action. IT then has two choices: ignore it or block it. Blocking the data impedes workflows, but letting it go isn't without risk. With WatchDox DLP integration, IT now has a third option: protect the data on its way out. This solves the issue both internally and externally, protects workflows and supports secure external collaboration. For example, an organization could use the solution to protect an email attachment detected to be potentially sensitive. The file would still be delivered to the recipient, but would be controlled, tracked and even be revocable were IT to find that it should not have been shared. As businesses continue to create, share and store data, the issue of managing and protecting sensitive information is compounded. The rise of EFSS and cloud repositories has only added to this challenge. As a result, DLP solutions capture the high and fast growing share of information security budgets, according to Gartner. This new integration complements an earlier integration that enabled Symantec DLP to scan files shared, sent or synced via WatchDox. This functionality, first deployed at a global financial institution, is available for all customers of WatchDox Enterprise.

Gamma Medica Selects WatchDox for Secure Collaboration with External Partners, Contractors

WatchDox announced that Gamma Medica is using WatchDox to securely share and collaborate on its intellectual property (IP), financial information and clinical data with external parties. With WatchDox, Gamma Medica can safely provide investors, vendors and partners with real-time access to mission-critical information through desktop and mobile devices, while maintaining control over the files wherever they end up. This not only helps Gamma Medica meet strict Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) compliance regulations, but it also protects against legal fines and other complications associated with IP and clinical data loss. Gamma Medica uses WatchDox for several purposes, including as a virtual data room to share files with investors. This information includes clinical information, 510k medical device forms and a variety of other confidential files. Additionally, Gamma Medica relies on WatchDox to collaborate on design documents with external contractors. Users appreciate the simple, intuitive interface and the ability to collaborate and share files on mobile devices using the WatchDox mobile app.

WatchDox Introduces Content Connectors for Cloud Storage Services

WatchDox announced the availability of Cloud Content Connectors, which extend its data-centric protections to files created or stored in cloud storage repositories. WatchDox Cloud Content Connectors enable users to access and share all their files from a single interface across all platforms. WatchDox will soon offer its Cloud Content Connector for Google Drive with additional services forthcoming. WatchDox Cloud Content Connector for Google Drive allows users to send a file to any recipients using WatchDox data-centric protections, including access controls, watermarking and tracking. Similarly, WatchDox users can see Google Drive as one of their repositories alongside their own WatchDox workspaces, sync folders, SharePoint, file shares and anything else that's connected. To ensure security, WatchDox only allows one-way traffic from Google Drive into WatchDox. WatchDox Cloud Content Connector provides several additional productivity and security benefits, including: Secure external sharing -- provides any level of control, including full digital rights management, watermarking, and revocation from any device, for files shared outside the organization. Mobile productivity -- enables comprehensive mobile productivity with the ability to annotate, edit and stream files from every repository. Syncing -- Content Connectors are built to do sophisticated syncing of metadata, enabling WatchDox to preserve access and permissions without copying files to the WatchDox server. Unlike other connectors built with older technologies, WatchDox Content Connectors work offline and keep files in sync even when they move or are renamed.
