PALO ALTO, Calif. – Monday, August 31, 2015 – Vera (vera.com) today announced a strategic partnership with VMware Inc. (NYSE: VMW) to extend data security, control, and policy management across physical, virtual, and cloud-hosted environments. Vera was exclusively selected as the first service integrated with VMware to help thousands of businesses confidently move into the next generation of application and IT management.
To complete VMware’s vision, Vera extends powerful data security, classification, and control across any end-user computing environment, while also providing advanced visibility into user behavior. By integrating into VMware’s unified application management platform, Vera operates seamlessly within existing workflows, enabling end users to achieve the highest levels of security without impacting productivity.
“For the first time, business around the world can successfully manage devices, users, applications, and security across physical and virtual environments at the click of a button,” said Ajay Arora, CEO of Vera. “Never before has there been a solution that enables 360-degree security for data at rest, data in motion, and data in use, until now. Together with VMware, we’re thrilled to seamlessly deliver real-time data security for every user and device, in any organization.”
Streamlining security for IT and end users
For IT, complexity is the enemy of security. When corporate data and applications can be delivered locally, from the network, or through the cloud, security teams face the monumental challenge of securing information while it’s in use. Through this integration, any of VMware’s customers can simplify the deployment and management of advanced security solutions across any device without impacting the end user experience. By streamlining deployment, configuration, and compliance monitoring, businesses of any size can improve their overall security posture.
Securing end user computing, from the desktop to the data
With the Vera integration, VMware customers can enhance their data security with strong encryption, tracking capabilities, and easy security audits for information in all forms–rest, in-motion, and in-use. Vera does this without storing customer data, giving users complete control at all times. Vera also ensures access to confidential information can be revoked or changed instantly, through user or company-managed policies.
Centralized insight into usage, events, and access
Vera also simplifies the monitoring and management of data security across the enterprise. The platform is storage and content-agnostic, and provides detailed logging, alerts, and usage data across devices in real-time. This allows security teams to measure data use, end user access, and policy compliance, and enables them to detect potential data breaches proactively. When data loss is suspected, teams can act swiftly to identify, isolate, and lockdown confidential information quickly and globally.
