Introducing Email Protector: Automated DRM Security for Email Attachments

WatchDox® by BlackBerry Email Protector provides businesses with a means of automatically controlling and securing files sent by email, even after they leave the firewall. Email Protector automatically embeds advanced DRM protection into email attachments sent through your organization’s email gateway based on controllable policies such as recipient or file type.

Email Protector also integrates with email Data Loss Prevention (DLP) solutions and enforces file-level security based on existing DLP security policies. If the DLP system identifies an email with sensitive business information, Email Protector will automatically embed DRM security into the attachment, according to the DLP risk profile, before it leaves the firewall.

Email Protector does not require WatchDox File Sync and Share licenses and starts at only $3.00/user/month (USD).
