Leading Distributor Adds RightsWATCH to Portfolio to Boost Its Information Security Technology Offering in France

MEDFORD, NJ and LISBON, PORTUGAL--(Marketwired - Nov 26, 2013) - Watchful Software, a leading provider of data-centric information security solutions, and Miel, a value-added distributor and training center in France, today announced that they have signed a distribution agreement entitling Miel to offer Watchful Software's advanced persistent security products to the French market. Miel will provide sales and support capabilities for Watchful Software's line of security products, including RightsWATCH, to its value-added-reseller (VAR) channel in the security marketplace.

"Watchful Software provides a disruptive technology solution that addresses the critical business need to maintain the security of corporate information. We are delighted to be adding RightsWATCH to our world-class products lineup," said Jean-Baptiste Pommé, Managing Director at Miel. "We pride ourselves in finding our reseller channels the best in breed technologies to address their customers' needs and problems. We know by adding Watchful Software's leading software security solutions, our partners will instantly have a competitive advantage in the security marketplace in France."

"This agreement underscores the increased demand customers are placing on VARs for advanced persistent security technologies in response to today's constant information threats. The market continues to be strong for RightsWATCH as it robustly addresses these demands," said João Beato Esteves, Watchful Software's Regional Sales Manager. "In addition, Miel brings to the VAR channel a true value added service. Excellent sales, pre-sales and post-sales support helps all of its partners succeed in bringing a new technology to the market."

Focused on Information Protection and Control (IPC) via data-centric security, RightsWATCH keeps sensitive data safe from security breaches, leaks, or unauthorized disclosure, resulting from either malicious wrongdoing or inadvertent misusage. RightsWATCH leverages data classification, Information Rights Management and Data Loss Prevention in a single software package, to keep sensitive data safe and secure regardless of whether it is at rest, in motion, or in use -- even if it's totally outside network perimeter defenses. RightsWATCH also aids in achieving regulatory compliance, by enforcing a multi-level security model, which provides access to data based on the user's "need-to-know," and delivering powerful forensic analytics.
