The Confidela www.WatchDox.com site will send a sample secure document.

Confidela, developer of document control, tracking and protection solutions, is allowing email of a sample document via WatchDox, a Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) solution, for confidential sharing of important or sensitive documents in an easy and secure way. WatchDox allows the sender to control, restrict and track viewing, printing and forwarding of documents sent to global partners, colleagues and customers.

Users can also send documents directly from Microsoft Outlook by downloading and installing the WatchDox Outlook plug-in. Confidela's partnership and integration with Box.net, announced in June, made WatchDox available to millions of Box.net users. Box.net is a web-based content storage and collaboration solution.

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.

"WatchDox is a natural extension to Box.net functionality because it provides added protection for users sharing sensitive documents," said Karen Appleton, VP of business development for Box.net. "Our partnership with Confidela gives our customers the ability to add additional security to Box.net's sharing capabilities, while also retaining full visibility into who has viewed and accessed a specific document."

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.

Moti Rafalin, CEO of Confidela, said the WatchDox service "fills a timely business need. The world has become flat and companies work across many geographies and cultures, sharing information with partners, colleagues and customers. WatchDox facilitates these business interactions and enhances productivity while protecting the valuable information in an easy and affordable way."

Annual Salary Survey

Before the calendar turned, 2016 already had the makings of a pivotal year for manufacturing, and for the world.

There were the big events for the year, including the United States as Partner Country at Hannover Messe in April and the 2016 International Manufacturing Technology Show in Chicago in September. There's also the matter of the U.S. presidential elections in November, which promise to shape policy in manufacturing for years to come.

But the year started with global economic turmoil, as a slowdown in Chinese manufacturing triggered a worldwide stock hiccup that sent values plummeting. The continued plunge in world oil prices has resulted in a slowdown in exploration and, by extension, the manufacture of exploration equipment.
