While advances in cloud computing, mobile workforce management and document collaboration have made working virtually, virtually easier, issues of document security still exist. Today, Confidela released Watchdox 2.2, a document control and tracking service, aiming to simplify what can be a complicated process. 

Go Ahead, Watch Your Documents

By providing users end-to-end protection of documents, companies can maintain a full audit trail, including all views, edits, forwards and printing of confidential documents. With this increased document security, Watchdox also provides companies with an easy-to-implement solution that allows them to meet compliance and security regulatory standards.

If you’re unfamiliar with the document sharing solution, Watchdox doesn’t require installation and can integrate with Microsoft Outlook.

In three manageable steps, users can upload a document, set the security controls including what recipients can do with the document, when it expires, how you can track document activity and send.
