PALO ALTO, Calif. March 26, 2019 – VERA, the leader in data-centric security, today announced the appointment of cybersecurity industry veteran Ramon Peypoch as Senior Vice President of Product. Peypoch will concentrate on the strategy and technology propelling VERA’s rapidly-growing security platform helping diverse customers like General Dynamics, Pokémon, National Geographic and KIND Snacks securely share sensitive data across collaborative cloud systems and partners.
Peypoch joins VERA after serving in senior leadership roles at top security companies including ProtectWise, Inc. (acquired by Verizon), McAfee, Proofpoint and Symantec, where he successfully lead product and business efforts for Endpoint, Network and Cloud security solutions and drove key technology integrations and partnerships. He brings extensive industry insights and relationships with enterprises adapting security to the post-perimeter, cloud-first era.
“I’ve been drawn to VERA’s technology from the moment I first saw the platform, because data protection fundamentally is no longer about locking down users and content based on what’s ‘inside’ versus ‘outside’ a company,” Peypoch explained. “Today security and risk management hinges on the ability to encrypt, track and control access to files in ways that do not break collaboration and the cloud. VERA nails this sweet spot with its proven technology, partners and overall usability – making it an exciting place to help our customers tackle their dual security and sharing priorities.”
“Ramon is a fantastic addition to our team, given his product leadership experience at some of the most disruptive and well-known security software vendors in the industry,” added VERA CEO, Carlos Delatorre. “Our customers face timeless demands for the confidentiality, integrity and availability of crown jewel data – a challenge compounded by the reality these assets must often exist in the cloud or across partners and supply chains, out of necessity. Ramon’s career focus on this evolving landscape makes him an ideal leader for our platform’s growth and direction.”

Data is the currency of modern business – a fundamental resource necessary for organizations to grow and innovate. From enabling operational efficiency to enhancing communication and collaboration across the enterprise, the seamless and secure flow of data has become an integral proponent to business success. VERA enables this customer experience by powering and orchestrating automated data security operations with flexible access control policies, ultimately empowering organizations to take control of their data regardless of its location and circumstance.
Unlike traditional, layered encryption defenses that only render exposed files worthless in four percent of data breaches, VERA’s file-centric platform lets dynamic encryption and variable access controls accompany files everywhere they travel, affording a crucial “kill-switch” capability making data worthless if malicious or accidental actions threatened to share sensitive information with unauthorized viewers.
VERA is the leading next-generation data security company enabling businesses of all sizes to secure, track and share any kind of data, no matter where it’s stored or located. With robust policy enforcement, strong encryption and strict access controls, VERA’s data-centric security solution enables employees to collaborate freely while ensuring a high level of security, visibility and control.
