BlackBerry aims to enhance its mobile security portfolio with the acquisition of WatchDox.
BlackBerry today announced that it has entered into a definitive agreement to acquire WatchDox to enhance its mobile security portfolio.
WatchDox’s technology will be offered as a value-added service that complements BlackBerry’s Enterprise Mobility Management (EMM) portfolio, and will be available with BES12. Terms of the transaction were not disclosed.
WatchDox is a data security company offering secure enterprise file-sync-and-share (EFSS) solutions that allow users to protect, share and work with their files on any device. WatchDox security travels with shared files on both mobile and desktop devices to give organisations full visibility and control over how files are edited, copied, printed or forwarded.
The solution also allows end users to revoke access or delete files remotely, enables secure mobile productivity for repositories both in the cloud and on premises, and gives administrators the ability to lock or remove access to files compromised in a data breach.
