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.

In addition to all the benefits, IoT is also bringing new kind of customer experience challenges - cars that unlock themselves, thermostats turning houses into saunas and baby video monitors broadcasting over the internet. This list can only increase because while IoT services should be intuitive and simple to use, the delivery ecosystem is a myriad of potential problems as IoT explodes complexity. So finding a performance issue is like finding the proverbial needle in the haystack.
The idea of comparing data in motion (at the sensor level) to data at rest (in a Big Data server warehouse) with predictive analytics in the cloud is very appealing to the industrial IoT sector. The problem Big Data vendors have, however, is access to that data in motion at the sensor location. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Scott Allen, CMO of FreeWave, discussed how as IoT is increasingly adopted by industrial markets, there is going to be an increased demand for sensor data from the outermos...
Between 2005 and 2020, data volumes will grow by a factor of 300 – enough data to stack CDs from the earth to the moon 162 times. This has come to be known as the ‘big data’ phenomenon. Unfortunately, traditional approaches to handling, storing and analyzing data aren’t adequate at this scale: they’re too costly, slow and physically cumbersome to keep up. Fortunately, in response a new breed of technology has emerged that is cheaper, faster and more scalable. Yet, in meeting these new needs they...
"Qosmos has launched L7Viewer, a network traffic analysis tool, so it analyzes all the traffic between the virtual machine and the data center and the virtual machine and the external world," stated Sebastien Synold, Product Line Manager at Qosmos, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at 19th Cloud Expo, held November 1-3, 2016, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
When it comes to cloud computing, the ability to turn massive amounts of compute cores on and off on demand sounds attractive to IT staff, who need to manage peaks and valleys in user activity. With cloud bursting, the majority of the data can stay on premises while tapping into compute from public cloud providers, reducing risk and minimizing need to move large files. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Scott Jeschonek, Director of Product Management at Avere Systems, discussed the IT and busin...
Data is the fuel that drives the machine learning algorithmic engines and ultimately provides the business value. In his session at 20th Cloud Expo, Ed Featherston, director/senior enterprise architect at Collaborative Consulting, will discuss the key considerations around quality, volume, timeliness, and pedigree that must be dealt with in order to properly fuel that engine.
More and more companies are looking to microservices as an architectural pattern for breaking apart applications into more manageable pieces so that agile teams can deliver new features quicker and more effectively. What this pattern has done more than anything to date is spark organizational transformations, setting the foundation for future application development. In practice, however, there are a number of considerations to make that go beyond simply “build, ship, and run,” which changes how...
In his general session at 19th Cloud Expo, Manish Dixit, VP of Product and Engineering at Dice, discussed how Dice leverages data insights and tools to help both tech professionals and recruiters better understand how skills relate to each other and which skills are in high demand using interactive visualizations and salary indicator tools to maximize earning potential.

"More importantly, it leverages the power of devices and the Internet to enable us all to im...
Whether your IoT service is connecting cars, homes, appliances, wearable, cameras or other devices, one question hangs in the balance – how do you actually make money from this service? The ability to turn your IoT service into profit requires the ability to create a monetization strategy that is flexible, scalable and working for you in real-time. It must be a transparent, smoothly implemented strategy that all stakeholders – from customers to the board – will be able to understand and comprehe...
"We are the public cloud providers. We are currently providing 50% of the resources they need for doing e-commerce business in China and we are hosting about 60% of mobile gaming in China," explained Yi Zheng, CPO and VP of Engineering at CDS Global Cloud, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at 19th Cloud Expo, held November 1-3, 2016, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
"Once customers get a year into their IoT deployments, they start to realize that they may have been shortsighted in the ways they built out their deployment and the key thing I see a lot of people looking at is - how can I take equipment data, pull it back in an IoT solution and show it in a dashboard," stated Dave McCarthy, Director of Products at Bsquare Corporation, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @ThingsExpo, held November 1-3, 2016, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
In IT, we sometimes coin terms for things before we know exactly what they are and how they’ll be used. The resulting terms may capture a common set of aspirations and goals – as “cloud” did broadly for on-demand, self-service, and flexible computing. But such a term can also lump together diverse and even competing practices, technologies, and priorities to the point where important distinctions are glossed over and lost.
What happens when the different parts of a vehicle become smarter than the vehicle itself? As we move toward the era of smart everything, hundreds of entities in a vehicle that communicate with each other, the vehicle and external systems create a need for identity orchestration so that all entities work as a conglomerate. Much like an orchestra without a conductor, without the ability to secure, control, and connect the link between a vehicle’s head unit, devices, and systems and to manage the ...
All clouds are not equal. To succeed in a DevOps context, organizations should plan to develop/deploy apps across a choice of on-premise and public clouds simultaneously depending on the business needs. This is where the concept of the Lean Cloud comes in - resting on the idea that you often need to relocate your app modules over their life cycles for both innovation and operational efficiency in the cloud. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at19th Cloud Expo, Valentin (Val) Bercovici, CTO of Soli...
