WatchDox Achieves Federal and Cloud Certifications; Amps Up Security, Compliance

PALO ALTO, Calif. --(Business Wire)--

WatchDox, a provider of secure enterprise file-sync-and-share (EFSS) solutions to protect, share and collaborate on files on any device, announced today that it has been awarded the Skyhigh CloudTrust™ rating of Enterprise-Ready for the cloud-focused enterprise market. Additionally, WatchDox achieved the Federal Information Processing Standards (FIPS) 140-2 Level 1 certification from the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), which allows federal, state and local agencies to implement certified document security services. The achievement of these strict certifications validates WatchDox's high security standards and confirms it meets the file-sharing and data compliance needs of Fortune 500 companies and government agencies.

Skyhigh Enterprise-Ready cloud services are the select cloud services that fully satisfy the most stringent requirements for data protection, identity verification, service security, business practices and legal protection. The FIPS 140-2 accreditation, a standard set by the U.S. government regarding the cryptology of information across technology platforms, etermines which solutions are certified for use by government and regulated industries that need to disseminate sensitive information.

Ryan Kalember, chief product officer at WatchDox, said, "Enterprises and federal agencies want to take advantage of easy file sharing and mobile productivity, but they need solutions that address all their use cases, including those that involve sensitive data. Adding the Skyhigh CloudTrust and federal FIPs certifications to our list of achievements underscores our commitment to ensuring companies and agencies can work and share their files however they need to, without losing control of their critical information."

WatchDox's complete EFSS solution allows users to access, view, edit, annotate, sync, share and control files from any device, making it the most comprehensive solution on the market. For large enterprises and federal agencies, WatchDox provides a safe method for sharing files that contain sensitive data. WatchDox is the only EFSS solution that keeps files protected with FIPS-certified encryption 100 percent of the time, whether the files are in transit, in use or stored at rest, even when the files are shared with an external party or accessed from an unmanaged device.
