PALO ALTO, Calif. – Tuesday, September 29, 2015 – Vera (vera.com) today announced a strategic integration with Box Inc. to help businesses extend content security and controls beyond the Box platform. For the first time, Vera and Box customers can provide additional encryption, file-level usage rights, and document classification to content leaving Box and maintain that control anywhere the file travels. Box users can seamlessly boost the security of any file that leaves their premises, including files shared via email, network file shares, or even physical USB storage.
“For the first time, Box customers can rest assured that when their data travels beyond the boundaries of Box, security follows that data wherever it goes,” said Ajay Arora, CEO of Vera. “Not only are we protecting files when they leave Box, but we can also help companies control their data no matter how it’s shared, giving every business the confidence that their shared files are secure.”
Together, Vera and Box power secure collaboration for some of the largest companies in the world, across media and entertainment, financial services, and professional services. Vera’s integration with Box adds an extra layer of security and control for the 50,000 businesses that rely on Box to share content externally with partners, customers, and third parties.
“Businesses today are challenged to protect closely-held information on a second-by-second basis, so the need to maintain control over sensitive files is a top priority,” said Michael Keithley, Chief Information Officer of Creative Artists Agency (CAA). “Box and Vera confront the new reality of the borderless enterprise with a solution built to protect data in transit, data at rest, and most importantly, data in use. For the first time, enterprises have complete control of their data and can enjoy the flexibility of securely sharing content outside of Box.”
With this integration, other major media and entertainment companies, as well as financial services and healthcare firms are turning to Vera to protect and track access to their confidential information, on premises and in the cloud. As organizations become more collaborative, IT teams need security solutions that can protect enterprise content through its full lifecycle, ensuring only people with the right credentials can access it.
“Box and Vera are perfect for us, and the thousands of businesses just like us, who need to confront today’s reality of the borderless enterprise,” said Ivan Sekeres, Managing Partner at Logica Funds. “With Box and Vera we can centrally manage and collaborate on files, and extend security and visibility once files leave the boundaries of Box. At BoxWorks, it was clear to see the excitement around Vera as a complimentary solution to Box, providing that critical last step to secure content and documents outside of Box.”
“Over nearly 7 years with Box, and having delivered almost $175 million in recurring annual revenue, I saw incredible adoption with businesses of all sizes, said Jim Herbold, former EVP of Worldwide Sales at Box, and current advisor to Vera. “I’m excited to now be working with Vera, a last mile security solution, that compliments Box extremely well to secure data anywhere it goes.”
