WatchDox, a document control, tracking and protection solution, has been named a 2011 SC Magazine Awards finalist for stellar leadership and achievement in information security. WatchDox is recognized in the Excellence Award Rookie Security Company of the Year category, which acknowledges companies with superior security products that help customers tackle today’s pressing security challenges.
“The contenders in this category have already won a significant honor, the respect of their peers and a body of experts that represents those most interested in following threats and advancements in information security,” said SC Magazine Editor-in-Chief Illena Armstrong. “To make it this far amongst hundreds of submissions is quite an achievement.”
In its 14th year, the information security industry’s most prominent accolade, the annual SC Awards showcase the best solutions, services and professionals while recognizing achievement and technical excellence. SC Magazine distinguishes the achievements of the security professionals in the trenches, the innovations happening in the vendor and service provider communities and the passionate work of government, commercial and nonprofits - all working to help improve global security.
IT security companies nominate their solutions for consideration in the SC Magazine Awards and entries are judged by a panel of leading security officers from large, medium and small enterprises from all major vertical markets - representing the wide distribution of SC Magazine readers.
“Companies are looking for ways to control, track and protect sensitive documents and intellectual property across organizational and geographic boundaries,” said Adi Ruppin, vice president of marketing of WatchDox. “Existing data loss prevention (DLP) and digital rights management (DRM) solutions are cumbersome and not built to facilitate external collaboration. WatchDox provides an easy and secure way to prevent possible leakage of a document. We’re honored to be recognized by SC Magazine for this advancement in the industry.”
Winners of this year’s SC Magazine Awards will be announced at a gala dinner and award ceremony to be held in San Francisco on Tuesday, February 15, 2011.
