As a benefit of using the SaaS model, Confidela says, senders and recipients do not need to install software, making WatchDox an ideal, cost-effective solution for sharing data across companies and organizations. By enabling tracking and control of sent documents, professionals and businesses can protect sensitive documents and confidential intellectual property.

Key features, according to Confidela, include:
- Document control allows the sender to have full control over the sent files, limiting recipient's ability to view, forward, copy-paste or print documents; setting expiration dates for each document; placing watermarks identifying the document's source and recipient; and modifying recipients' permissions or altogether revoke documents at any time, even after they are sent.
- Document tracking provides detailed tracking capabilities so viewing, forwarding or printing a protected document is logged and traced.
- Document protection ensures encryption of uploaded and stored documents using industry-standard methods, streaming them into a secure Flash-based viewer that leaves no traces on the recipient's computer.

Manufacturers concerned with intellectual property, such as semiconductor companies, can ensure security across their supply chains when they must email confidential specs and designs daily to partners and contractors across the world, Confidela says. The functionality also helps business development professionals who send presentations or legal contracts to potential partners and customers and do not want these documents to end up in the wrong hands, and marketing and sales departments sharing information and price lists with channels and the sales force.
