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.
