Watchful Software Expands Global Footprint With Distribution Agreements in Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA)

Leading Distributors Boost Information Security Technology Offering for VARs by Adding Watchful Software Products to Portfolio

MEDFORD, NJ and LISBON, PORTUGAL--(Marketwired - Aug 27, 2013) - Watchful Software, a leading provider of data-centric information security solutions, today announced it has signed distribution agreements with several innovative, leading technology distributors from across the globe including UK-based Cloud Distribution, Italy-based Dotforce, Middle East-based FVC, Norway-based Heath Comm and South African-based Tellumat. This esteemed list of companies is able to offer Watchful Software's information security technology products to the their respective geographical markets, providing sales and support capabilities for Watchful Software's line of security products, including RightsWATCH and TypeWATCH, to their value-added-resellers (VARs).

"These agreements signal the increased demand that customers are placing on VARs for information security technology offerings in light of today's constant information threats, and the strong market response to RightsWATCH to address these demands," said João Beato Esteves, EMEA Sales Manager for Watchful Software. "In addition, the value-add that Cloud Distribution, Dotforce, Heath Comm, FVC, and Tellumat bring to the VAR and reseller channel means faster delivery, deeper technical support, and streamlined operations through online ordering, configuration tools, and customer financing resources for a total business and technical solution."

Adam Davison, Director of Cloud Distribution said: "According to the '2013 Cost of Data Breach Study', the average cost of a data breach among UK firms has risen for the sixth consecutive year, with more than a third of breaches involving negligent employees or contractors. Securing the network perimeter is no longer enough to keep enterprises safe from compromise. Now, more than ever, organizations need a solution that shields the information itself. A perfect complement to our other Enterprise Mobility & BYOD offerings, RightsWATCH offers a cost-effective solution to protect a company's greatest asset -- its data."

"The addition of Watchful Software's world-class products to our lineup will provide our resellers with a comprehensive advanced persistent security solution," said Fabrizio Bressani, General Manager at DotForce. "We're committed to offer products to our resellers that will provide them with the best opportunities for success in a competitive marketplace, and we believe Watchful Software's leading software security solutions will immediately differentiate our offering."

"We are pleased to be taking the lead in delivering powerful and innovative security solutions to the Middle East market," said K.S. Parag, Managing Director of FVC. "Our partners and their customers look to us to provide access to the industry's best technology and to marry that with support and services that lead to highly successful projects with a rapid ROI, and we feel that the Watchful portfolio will deliver just that." FVC covers the Middle East and Africa regions.

"Heath Comm is renowned in Norway for introducing new and innovative technologies to their partner network. To add Watchful Software to our portfolio could not be more timely," said Bjarte Guterud, Director, Heath Comm. "Their outstanding RightsWATCH technology addresses the rapidly growing issue of data loss and leakage facing every organization. We are delighted to have secured our distribution partnership with Watchful for the Norwegian market."

"We are very happy to have secured our distribution partnership with Watchful Software. Tellumat strives to bring world class technology to the South African Market and with Watchful's RightsWATCH Data-Centric Security Solution we certainly have met that expectation," Bennie Langenhoven, Managing Executive at Tellumat. "The RightsWATCH solution will allow our channel partners to lead the way in helping organizations protect themselves from data leakage and loss."

Watchful Software's product portfolio features RightsWATCH, an award-winning information protection solution to keep data safe and secure regardless of whether it is at rest, in motion, or in use even when it's totally outside the network perimeter. In addition, the portfolio includes TypeWATCH, which leverages state-of-the-art e-Biometrics technology to constantly ensure that the people using a company's systems are who they claimed to be when signing in.
