Watchful Software Wins Gold in 2015 IT World Awards

Flagship RightsWATCH Technology Is Recognized as Top Solution in the Security Software Category

MEDFORD, NJ--(Marketwired - Jul 1, 2015) - Watchful Software, a leading provider of data-centric information security solutions, today announced that its award-winning RightsWATCH offering has been named the Gold Winner in the Security Software category by Network Products Guide, an industry leading technology research and advisory guide, in its 10th Annual 2015 IT World Awards. The Network Products Guide's IT World Awards honor outstanding technology and recognize the IT industry's leaders.

Of special note was the applicability of RightsWATCH not only to large enterprises, but to small and medium sized organizations as well, due to the simplicity, automation, and integration with Microsoft's Azure platform inherent in its newer versions. As the winning selection in the security software category, RightsWATCH once again proves it is the leading data-centric solution for securing information and data. RightsWATCH ensures sensitive information is identified, classified, marked, and that it can only be used by authorized users. Even if data is leaked, it is rendered useless to unauthorized parties that may acquire it. RightsWATCH enforces an organization's information security policy seamlessly and dynamically, allowing use of sensitive and confidential data only by those who possess the credentials, protecting data privacy, reducing liability, and ensuring regulatory compliance.

As an annual achievement and recognition program with active participation from a broad spectrum of industry voices, the annual IT World Awards honor the world's best in organizational performance, products and services, executives and management teams, successful deployments, product management and engineering, support and customer satisfaction, and public relations in every area of information technology.

"We're pleased that RightsWATCH has been recognized with the prestigious Gold Award for security software by Network Products Guide's IT World Awards," said Charles Foley, CEO, Watchful Software. "With the escalating incidence of data breaches and the massive losses incurred each time, RightsWATCH's data centric approach to security is emerging as crucial in protecting an organization's most valuable asset -- its information. Hopefully this validation can spur even more organizations, especially SMBs, to embrace today's approach to information security."
