With Vera for Mail, Palo Alto-based data security specialist Vera gives businesses the ability to protect and audit corporate communications, restrict sharing, and revoke access to sent emails. “With Vera for Mail,” said Vera co-founder and CEO Ajay Arora, “the days of email leaks are finally over.”
Vera for Mail enables enterprise customers to take advantage of the convenience of email while enjoying the seamless protection of Vera’s data-centric security platform. From a single console, administrators have complete control and “360 degree visibility” over the contents and attachments in enterprise email communications even after emails have been downloaded, forwarded, or accessed offline. And both email senders and recipients can use the technology without having to rely on key exchanges or proprietary plug-ins.

Ajay Arora, Vera co-founder and CEO referred to Vera for Mail as “the next stage in our long-term quest to protect enterprise data through the last mile, secure every collaboration channel, and ensure the confidentiality and integrity of our customers’ most valuable data.” Calling data encryption, access, and auditing “an absolute necessity” in an increasingly collaborative corporate environment, Arora pointed out that other solutions often fail due to being too complicated or not “foolproof enough” to be relied on for everyday use in the enterprise. In its press release, the company noted a 2017 Cybersecurity Report from Cisco that said that while email continues to be “the primary tool” for transmitting and sharing sensitive data, only 12% of cybersecurity professionals queried said they trusted their firm’s current email security strategy.
Founded in 2014 and headquartered in Palo Alto, California, Vera demonstrated its technology at FinovateSpring 2016. The company’s solutions – including Vera for Files and Vera Platform – are used by more than 300,000 professionals across the Fortune 100, and Vera notes that it actively secures more than 10 million files for its corporate clients.
A finalist in the 2016 RSA Innovation Sandbox Competition in the “Most Innovative Startup” category, and recognized as a SINET 16 winner by Security Innovation Network, Vera was honored as a 2017 SC Magazine Trust Award Finalist for Cloud Computing Security in January. The company has raised $35 million in funding, with its most recent investment a $21 million Series B completed in the spring of 2016.
