MEDFORD, NJ and LISBON, PORTUGAL--(Marketwire - Feb 13, 2013) - Watchful Software, a leading provider of data-centric information security solutions, and AnubisNetworks, a leading provider of email/network security solutions and data protection, announced today a global technological alliance to increase the security of corporate information networks. The companies have announced the integrated roadmap of their flagship products -- RightsWATCH and MPS - Mail Protection Service -- to offer a more comprehensive solution to address the issue of protecting sensitive information being exchanged electronically around the globe.
RightsWATCH allows enterprises to dynamically classify and encrypt information such as documents, PDFs and email messages to ensure that only valid recipients can use that information. In addition, the technology can automatically add watermarking and fingerprinting elements, based on characteristics such as content, attachments and headers. Once this is done, MPS is then able to apply rules to both inbound and outbound emails in order to more effectively and securely manage message delivery based on specific words in the subject, body, or message headers. The result of combining a state-of-the-art data-centric security product with a powerful downstream email gateway engine is a dramatic increase in the effectiveness and security of exchanging sensitive information around the world.
"AnubisNetworks develops and provides state-of-art technologies for both cloud-based and datacenter managed security solutions and products. We believe that simple solutions to complex problems can be found through constant innovation both internally and with our partners. Hence, we are thrilled with this technology alliance, in which our own email security gateway appliance can seamlessly integrate with RightsWATCH. As a leading email security provider serving mobile operators, major banks, television and media companies, universities, oil and gas companies, and multiple ISPs, we will leverage this alliance to further optimize and secure the messaging solutions that we deliver to our customers," says Francisco Fonseca, CEO of AnubisNetworks.
"Security is all about adding layers of defense to the entire information ecosystem, with the endgame being to mitigate threats. The combination of RightsWATCH and MPS is addressing the information security problem from multiple angles, by securing both the information itself and the delivery method. RightsWATCH automatically classifies and protects the email at the moment the user creates it, and MPS applies policy rules to it downstream. In a nutshell, it delivers the best of both the ERM and DLP worlds to enterprise email communications," states Charles Foley, Chairman and CEO of Watchful Software.
