WatchDox Upgrades User Interface on Industry’s Most Secure Enterprise File-Sync-and-Sharing Solution

WatchDox, a provider of secure enterprise file-sync-and-share (EFSS) solutions to protect, share and collaborate on files on any device, today announced that it is rolling out a more intuitive and streamlined user interface, which makes protecting and sharing files with WatchDox even easier via any PC, laptop, tablet or smartphone. The interface upgrade comes after a year in which the market clearly looked to WatchDox as the most secure and comprehensive mobile enterprise file-sync-and-share solution. With new customers and partners from across industries and around the globe signing on in 2013, WatchDox moves into 2014 ready to deliver mobile collaboration and security to an even wider base.

In 2013, WatchDox added more than double the number of enterprise customers it signed in the previous year. This growth reflects a market eager for secure mobile file sharing and collaboration solutions, thanks to the more widespread mobile device use in the enterprise. WatchDox now delivers its optimized viewer, annotation ability, mobile editing, virtualized application and security controls in an all-in-one application to six of the top 12 private equity firms, four of the six top Hollywood studios and three out of the 10 top insurance firms. With both collaboration and mobility an increasing concern in the public sector, WatchDox customers now also include multiple government agencies in the U.S., Canada, Australia and the U.K.

“Companies now understand the realities of the mobile enterprise and the need for collaborative workflows, file syncing and sharing,” said Moti Rafalin, CEO and founder of WatchDox. “Businesses want secure, comprehensive tools that also boost productivity, and they’re coming to WatchDox to get them.”

In addition to its domestic growth in 2013, WatchDox’s presence in Europe and beyond also expanded. Two of the company’s five biggest customers are now European-based. WatchDox also joined the MobileIron AppConnect partner program in 2013 and signed partnerships with several U.K. channel firms, as well as with NTT Software, a Japanese reseller. All of these relationships have helped to grow the WatchDox customer base and revenue, which now reaches into the eight figures, putting the company within reach of profitability.

In addition to its newly enhanced user interface, the company also has built out its unique architecture, which empowers customers to choose from a cloud, on-premise or hybrid deployment and connect to existing content repositories such as SharePoint without replicating the files. WatchDox also became the first EFSS provider to combine mobile viewing, editing, annotation of any document type, and streaming of Microsoft Office, all in one seamless, secure app. WatchDox is the only solution to offer both the capabilities end users want and all the deployment options enterprises need, making it superior to alternative solutions, including Box, Dropbox, EMC Syncplicity and Citrix ShareFile.
