BlackBerry makes Watchdox and email protection available for Salesforce

BlackBerry has announced WatchDox by BlackBerry Email Protector, a new offering that provides businesses with the means of automatically controlling and securing files sent through email by embedding file-level DRM protection, even after they leave the organisation´s firewall. In addition, WatchDox File Sync and Share integration will be available for Salesforce.com and Microsoft Office Online.

“The emergence of cloud services as core components of business infrastructure is changing the way organizations need to approach security. 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,” said Billy Ho, Executive Vice President, Enterprise Product and Value Added Solutions, BlackBerry. “The risk of data loss is significantly minimized 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.”

Email Protector leverages the WatchDox platform to automatically apply DRM protection to email attachments sent through an organisation’s email gateway based on controllable policies such as recipient or file type. Administrators can protect or exempt specific file types, users or entire domains. In addition, Email Protector places attached files into an IT-controlled WatchDox repository and replaces the file with a download link in the original email. Email Protector also integrates with email Data Loss Prevention (DLP) solutions to enforce file-level security based on DLP security policies. If the DLP system identifies an email with sensitive business information, WatchDox will embed DRM security into the attachment before it leaves the firewall, informs the company in a statement.

BlackBerry adds that companies working with Salesforce can take advantage of WatchDox storage, sharing, collaboration and customizable document security features, directly from within Salesforce.com.
In an upgrade to WatchDox for Microsoft Outlook, WatchDox provides users with a consolidated and convenient place to view all of their sent and received files at a glance and with tools to easily create, version, protect and share files up to 10 GB in size. All this is done within the Microsoft Outlook interface.
