Watchful Software Recognized as CRN Emerging Vendor for 2013

MEDFORD, NJ and LISBON, PORTUGAL--(Marketwired - Aug 14, 2013) - Watchful Software, a leading provider of data-centric information security solutions, today announced it has been named a 2013 Emerging Technology vendor by UBM Tech Channel's CRN Magazine. The annual list highlights hot tech startups making an impact on the channel and an impression on the tech industry as a whole. These up-and-coming technology vendors have recently introduced a new product or technology that is not only innovative, but addresses a key strategic issue that solution providers require answers for in today's competitive marketplace.

Watchful Software delivers to its customers cutting-edge solutions in the realm of information protection: RightsWATCH -- a layered information protection solution to keep data safe and secure regardless of whether it is in transit or stored inside or outside a secure network perimeter -- and TypeWATCH -- an advanced persistent security solution, using state-of-the-art e-Biometrics, to continuously verify that the people using computer systems are actually the persons that their user ID and password indicate that they should be.

"These days, sensitive information is all too often lost, leaked or sent where it shouldn't be; hence a top priority for organizations has become stopping this trend. Watchful lets enterprises ensure that only those with express authorization can use that data, regardless of where it resides or how it is received," stated Charles Foley, Chairman and CEO of Watchful Software. "We're honored to be recognized by UBM Tech Channel's CRN Magazine as a leader in innovation and entrepreneurship. This most recent accolade reinforces our strategy in providing to the market leading-edge technology, leveraged on a strong partnership network."

"Any technology vendor can claim to offer innovative products and groundbreaking technology, but only a select group can truly impact the marketplace with their offerings," said Robert Faletra, CEO, UBM Tech Channel. "The companies named to the 2013 Emerging Vendor list offer solutions that deliver as promised while creating the high margins that solution providers demand. We congratulate all the vendors for their commitment to delivering technological innovations that map to the needs of the dynamic channel market."

The vendors that make up the CRN Emerging Technology Vendor list were founded in 2007 or later, and have revenue under $1 billion. To view the list and read the editorial accompaniment visit www.CRN.com. The list will also be featured in the August issue of CRN magazine.
