WatchDox by BlackBerry Email Protector automatically applies DRM to files attached to outgoing emails.
Attachments can be protected according to their file types, or according on the recipient (an individual or a domain).
Email Protector can be integrated with a data loss prevention product to apply DRM according to the information an attachment contains.
The integration of WatchDox file synchronisation and sharing with Salesforce.com means WatchDox storage, sharing, collaboration and customisable document security features are directly available within Salesforce.com. Using WatchDox to store and share files related to Salesforce records provides customisable access controls that can be automatically expired or manually revoked when required.
WatchDox for Web is now integrated with Office Online, so users can securely view, edit and version their documents without ever having to leave the web browser, download a file, or install any software. When changes are saved, they are automatically synced back to WatchDox and stored as a new version.
A forthcoming update to WatchDox for Microsoft Outlook provides a consolidated view (within the Outlook interface) of sent and received files, with tools to create, version, protect and share files up to 10GB in size.
Other changes to WatchDox by BlackBerry include custom application workspaces (allowing developers to create software that uses WatchDox storage without exposing the files through WatchDox's own user interface), an HTML5 viewer in WatchDox for Web (no longer dependent on Flash), Role Builder (allowing administrators to create customised permission profiles for workflows, customised timeout periods (eg, external users may be required to re-authenticate daily, while employees only have to do so once a week), and Easy Upload (a new feature in WatchDox for Microsoft Windows that automatically resumes interrupted uploads).
Details of this set of announcements are available here.
"The emergence of cloud services as core components of business infrastructure is changing the way organisations need to approach security," said BlackBerry executive vice-president of enterprise product and value added solutions, Billy Ho.
"WatchDox protects the new borderless enterprise by delivering not only the most secure EFSS File Sync and Share solutions but enhanced integration with Salesforce.com and the new BlackBerry Email Protector.
"The risk of data loss is significantly minimised by encrypting and enforcing DRM protection at the file-level when users are viewing, editing and annotating synced documents, no matter on which side of the firewall those documents travel."
