Reading, UK – 25th November 2013 – Security and networking value added distributor (VAD) Cloud Distribution has signed a distribution agreement with WatchDox, a provider of secure file sharing, synchronising, collaboration, editing, annotating and mobile productivity solutions. The WatchDox offering is the most secure way to enable increased workflow and mobile collaboration by allowing end-users to access, share and control critical documents wherever they go on any tablet, smartphone, or PC, and even on devices beyond the IT department’s control. With immediate effect, WatchDox will enhance Cloud Distribution’s Enterprise Mobility stack and Cloud Distribution will become WatchDox’s sole distributor across the U.K. and Ireland.
Cloud Distribution’s Enterprise Mobility solution enables value added resellers (VARs) to promote an enterprise-class solution as a product sale or managed offering, including secure Wi-Fi connectivity, network access control, device management, data centric security and device APT and malware protection. WatchDox significantly enhances Cloud Distribution’s portfolio, particularly for organisations in industries such as technology, finance, legal and manufacturing, where sensitive information has to be shared externally.
“The need to deliver a secure enterprise mobility strategy is one of the most pressing issues that IT security teams are tackling today as mobile workforces are only set to grow. The addition of WatchDox means that our Enterprise Mobility stack can deliver a complete solution for resellers to offer their end users, all of whom are striving to prevent data loss, mitigate security breaches and meet compliance regulations,” said Adam Davison, director at Cloud Distribution.
“More enterprises are moving away from consumer Dropbox-type file sharing and mobile solutions due to security concerns. WatchDox provides the enterprise-level secure mobility and collaboration functionality that organisations need,” said Ryan Kalember, chief product officer at WatchDox. “Having recently established our EMEA headquarters in London, we sought a distribution partner in the U.K. With its rich IT security credentials and expertise in introducing new technologies to the U.K. market, Cloud Distribution was the obvious choice for WatchDox.”
Dave Henderson, Sales Director at, the UK’s leading mobility integrator, Bluefort Security, said, “The mobile challenges of security, collaboration and secure sync are almost universal among our customers. With WatchDox now part of Cloud Distribution’s portfolio, we can now offer a complete end to end secure mobile enterprise security solution, from MDM,MAM, zero day malware protection right through to secure file share, edit and collaboration.”
