Catalyst Conference--WatchDox, a provider of secure enterprise file-sync-and-share (EFSS) solutions to protect, share and collaborate on files on any device, today 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.

“Today’s enterprise users create, share and store content across multiple platforms and repositories, but not all services meet enterprise security or productivity needs,” said Ryan Kalember, chief product officer at WatchDox. “WatchDox Cloud Content Connectors provide a single pane of glass to access and secure all enterprise content, whether a file sits in Google Drive, on a network file share or on a desktop. This not only creates productivity efficiencies, it also enhances existing content security with our data-centric protections.”

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.

WatchDox Cloud Content Connectors are part of the complete WatchDox EFSS solution, which allows users to access, view, edit, annotate, sync and share files from any device, making it the most comprehensive solution on the market. The Google Drive connector will be generally available soon. For more information, please contact us here.
