Global Convergence to Offer Data-Centric Security Solution
Expanded Portfolio Helps Channel Partners Address Growing Data Security Market
Oldsmar, Fla. (May 20, 2015) – Global Convergence, Inc. (GCI), a U.S.-based value-added distributor with a full, channel-driven global IT services portfolio, today announced they are offering Watchful Software’s flagship solution, RightsWATCH™, to provide their partner community with access to a unique and powerful data-centric security software solution.
Global Convergence is offering RightsWATCH to help channel partners address the swelling market need to automatically classify and protect sensitive data. As massive amounts of resources are invested in securing the network perimeter, one thing has become painfully clear; protecting the perimeter alone has proven ineffective. In the advent of BYOD, information flows freely inside and outside the perimeter, making it necessary for enterprises to secure the information itself. RightsWATCH keeps sensitive data safe and secure regardless of whether it’s in transit or stored inside or outside the network perimeter.
GCI’s Solution Providers can offer RightsWATCH to improve compliance and data protection for their clients, while reducing internal security breaches, leaks and unauthorized disclosure of data. Through GCI, channel partners will have access to certified training, marketing programs and an in-house demo environment to help bring RightsWATCH to market with their customers.
“We view our partnership with Watchful Software as highly strategic, and provides our partners the ability to bring a unique security solution to their clients,” said Rick Lewis, Sr. Vice President, Channel Sales at Global Convergence.
“We are excited about working together with Global Convergence to provide world-class data security solutions to their network of partners,” stated Charles Foley, CEO at Watchful Software. “RightsWATCH is a compelling solution that every organization needs, and represents a large opportunity for partners to confront the security challenges their clients are facing and provide a high level of value.”
