DRM Controls

WatchDox empowers users with easy-to-use digital rights management (DRM) controls, so they can always be in control of their content, even after external collaborators have downloaded it.

Intuitive permission menus are presented to the user when sharing files. This allows them to quickly establish permissions by user or user group, such as the ability to view, edit, print, and share. Each file can be controlled, tracked, expired or revoked even after it’s been downloaded.

Advanced DRM capabilities allow users to:

  • Control capabilities such as access, view, edit, copy, print, download and forward.
  • Track, revoke, wipe, or expire file access at any time – even after the document has been downloaded or shared.
  • Set up customized watermarks to deter screenshots and include details such as the user’s email or IP address
  • Further deter against screen capturing with Spotlight viewer, which blurs the screen except where the mouse pointer is hovering

Secure Enterprise file Sharing and mobile content management

Universal Access to Your
Digital Workspace

Synced Workspaces on Desktop

Workspaces are the heart of WatchDox collaboration. They enable teams to collaborate on files in real-time, knowing they always have the latest version of the file. And with robust sync utilities for Windows® and Mac OS® X, users can select workspaces to be synced to their computer for fast and easy access.

Share & Sync Files on any Mobile Device
Mobile Device

WatchDox native apps for Android, iPhone, iPad, and BlackBerry 10 keep files in sync and enable users to access and manage their files from anywhere. View, create, search, edit, annotate, and enforce DRM permissions on Microsoft® Office, Adobe® PDF and image files. Files can also be saved for offline access.

Quick Send

Users can instantly transfer files from their computer or mobile device, without having to store the file on a workspace. File-level DRM protection can easily be applied at the same time.

Microsoft® Outlook® Plug-in

Apply DRM protection and send large files directly from Outlook. Every sensitive attachment you send by email can be DRM protected – with no need to sign in to another program. Simply click “Send Protected” from within Outlook.

WatchDox by BlackBerry Mobile Applications

Integrate WatchDox mobility and security into your enterprise applications

Flexible Deployment Options

All deployment solutions enable a single and secure view of all enterprise content from any device.


For customers that prefer a managed offering, combined with a quick deployment.


For organizations that need complete control, end-to-end, or for those who wish to extend and mobilize existing storage repositories with WatchDox advanced DRM security.


For the utmost flexibility. Enterprises extend existing repositories and still take advantage of the WatchDox Cloud for net-new storage.

Integrate With Key Enterprise Solutions

Protect in-place

WatchDox Connectors extend existing file repositories, making them available through the WatchDox interface, outside the company firewall and protected by DRM. This enables employees to easily collaborate with external contacts on their existing asset libraries and avoids having to duplicate files in the cloud.

WatchDox can mobilize and protect the following storage repositories: Windows File Share, SharePoint, SharePoint Online, Documentum, OpenText, Alfresco, IBM FileNet, HP Trim, and many more supported by CMIS connectors.

Authentication systems

Integrate with existing security solutions, including Firewalls, Intrusion Protection Systems, Identity and Access Management (IAM), Data Loss Prevention (DLP), and Event Management. Users within your organization can access their files conveniently with secure single sign-on (SSO). WatchDox supports Active Directory® (ADFS), SAML, oAuth, and BlackBerry Enterprise Identity.

Advanced eDiscovery and DLP integration

When WatchDox is configured to work alongside existing SMTP-based eDiscovery solutions, DRM-protected files and WatchDox repository links are injected into the eDiscovery solution for indexing in accordance with eDiscovery requirements.

WatchDox can also integrate with ICAP- based DLP solutions, providing a powerful combination of DRM file protection, mobile security, discovery, remediation and alerts. This allows organizations to protect or prevent distribution and to discover and encrypt sensitive content.

WatchDox by BlackBerry encrypts files while they’re in use, at rest or in transit using FIPS 140-2 validated cryptographic library and 256-bit AES encryption.


WatchDox’s unique and easy-to-use DRM features mean that you can restrict what recipients can do with their files – even after the file has been delivered. In order to make policy enforcement easy, permissions can be set at an individual user or group level. Moreover, the sender can remotely change and revoke access permissions at any time, manually or via pre-set expiration.

File tracking and auditing

WatchDox keeps a complete activity history of protected documents to meet your security forensics and compliance requirements. You’ll know who did what to a file, when they did it and what device and application was used, including geo-location based on the user’s IP address.
