Watchful Software to Demonstrate Award-Winning Security Technology at TechED Europe 2013

Newly Released RightsWATCH 4.8 Enhances BYOD and Collaboration Security

MEDFORD, NJ and LISBON, PORTUGAL--(Marketwired - Jun 25, 2013) - Watchful Software, a leading provider of data-centric information security solutions, will be showcasing RightsWATCH, its powerful tool for classifying and protecting data, by means of mediating and controlling access to data based on its classification at TechED Europe 2013, taking place this week in Madrid, Spain.

"If the recent events surrounding the disclosure of classified US Government information teaches us anything, it's that simply trying to secure the network perimeter to keep attackers out is not, by itself, sufficient to protect sensitive data. Just as important is having a data-centric approach to security that provides the means to control how data is used and distributed even beyond access control. The question CIOs and CISOs have today is how to control usage of sensitive data by anyone, realizing that the greatest threat may not be 'outsiders' breaking into the network, but the 'insiders' letting the information out in ways and to places they shouldn't," said Charles Foley, Chairman & CEO of Watchful Software.

"Enterprises leverage RightWATCH to ensure that data is protected and tamper-resistant. RightsWATCH is designed to enforce multi-level security and mandatory access control, providing access to data on a 'need to know' basis, in order to protect data privacy and achieve regulatory compliance," stated Rui Melo Biscaia, Director of Product Management at Watchful Software.

At TechED, Watchful will show how RightsWATCH 4.8 can deliver persistent encryption protection to sensitive data on mobile devices and smartphones, and also how RightsWATCH is designed to apply next generation data tagging and labeling to make unstructured data secure in a world where sensitive information is handled in an unstructured way.

To get a comprehensive demo on how RightsWATCH provides an easy-to-use and flexible data classification solution that leverages on AD RMS to enforce access controls by comparing a data classification label with a user's security clearance -- see us at Booth 11 @ TechED.
