San Jose, CA (PressExposure) July 28, 2008 -- Watch360 Systems (http://www.watch360.com) today announced a version of its Website Alerts service that now enables marketing professionals in computer security companies to keep informed about their competitors.
The new version monitors the websites of over 600 computer security companies for new press releases, white papers, upcoming events, media coverage, management team changes, and other updates. Users automatically receive a daily consolidated email alert about all the new information on the websites of companies they specify.
Watch360 fills a void in the competitive intelligence arena. While Google News and other such services monitor the media for news articles, no similar tools have been available to monitor company websites for updates and changes.
Watch360's proprietary software scans web pages every night and compares the contents to a copy saved in a database from the previous night. All the new text is filtered and consolidated into a single email. In addition, Watch360 highlights the changes on the original web page for easy access.
"A competitor's website is a vital source of information about its actions and plans," said Watch360's CEO, Srikanth Chari. "By monitoring this, Watch360 provides insights that can help a company respond effectively to competitive threats as they arise."
Availability and Pricing Watch360's Website Alerts Service is available now for only $495 per year to monitor up to 30 companies. Users can easily customize their account to add or remove companies, monitor other web pages, or define filters to screen out unwanted alerts.
