WatchDox Announces First Virtual Appliance For Secure Document Sharing

Private cloud, virtual appliance options complement the WatchDox SaaS offering, meeting document protection, control and tracking needs for all organizations

MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- WatchDox, a provider of document control, tracking and protection solutions, today announced the availability of its on-premise offering. Delivering the same rich feature set and ease-of-use as its proven software-as-a-service (SaaS) solution, WatchDox's virtual appliance addresses the needs of organizations that are required to meet specialized, strict security and privacy requirements. With private cloud and virtual appliance options, WatchDox secure document sharing and virtual data room solutions fill a previously unmet need in the government, public sector and financial industries.

"WatchDox's cloud-based security for sensitive documents has been in high demand due to the heightened awareness of document leaks worldwide. However, large customers in government organizations and international financial institutions have voiced a need for private cloud and on-premise choices, as well," said Adi Ruppin, vice president of business development and marketing of WatchDox. "The channel has been waiting for a secure document exchange solution that can be deployed both as a cloud and as an on-premise solution, addressing wide customer needs. Today, we're happy to deliver it."
