Watchdox by Blackberry


A relatively small player, Watchdox by Blackberry is a secure data management and virtual data room platform that allows easy document synchronization and secure sharing.  Blackberry is very passionate about security, and this shows. This secure data room platform offers multi-layer protection, complete data control and audited tracking of downloaded documents even after they have been emailed or otherwise shared. Similar to other data rooms, Watchdox data room admins may prevent certain users from certain actions such as copying, printing or emailing file. This secure file sharing solution is delivered as a Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) only which makes it useful for corporate file sharing. Watchdox has been reported to work safely on all platforms and devices but the value for money aspect remains unimpressive, as well as their customer support.
