MELVILLE, N.Y. and PALO ALTO, Calif. February 13, 2018 – Today at the One Canon press and analyst event in Hollywood, FL Canon Solutions America, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Canon U.S.A., Inc., with over 78,000 customers, announced it has selected Vera to provide technology designed to help protect Canon customers’ intellectual property and critical business information. By embracing a data-centric approach to security, we’ve entered into a new and exciting era where the old paradigm of perimeter-based approaches are no longer the unquestioned norm. Together with Vera’s encryption and data protection technology, Canon Solutions America can now provide its customers with the technology to help protect their data anywhere, any time and give them the ability to control access to that data at the file level.
Canon Solutions America President, Peter Kowalczuk, recalls a recent conversation with a large Fortune 1000 financial customer: “We asked them how they were securing their environment and they were confident their current security posture met all requirements. We asked that same customer how they control access to sensitive email and the attachments, once they’ve left the corporate domain, and the silence was deafening. At that moment, we knew we had an offering that would help our customers collaborate and share content without compromising security. Through our new relationship with Vera, we can help our customers with protecting their information throughout their organization, including documents scanned on Canon imageRUNNER ADVANCE MFPs, and help secure workflows across a complex organization.”
Vera’s innovative data-centric security platform gives customers the ability to encrypt, track, and help control how content is accessed, or how it’s shared. Combining Vera’s strong security and dynamic control with Canon Solutions America’s innovative digital and business services platform, customers will now have access to powerful new security capabilities, designed to give users dynamic access control over their files. As part of this new relationship, Canon Solutions America’s sales force will offer Vera products and services as a core offering of their Security Solutions and Services portfolio. Additionally, Canon Solutions America plans to integrate Vera’s data security solution across its solutions portfolio to provide its customers with the tools to help protect sensitive files as they flow in an out of customer systems.
Canon Solutions America has chosen Vera to:
“Our mission is to protect our customer’s most sensitive data, anywhere and always,” said Ajay Arora, CEO and co-founder of Vera. “Canon’s products are at the center of how businesses around the world work, and we’re inspired by their philosophy of working together for the common good. Through our new relationship, we are going to advance the way organizations collaborate, create, and share their visions, more securely.”
