Vera Achieves Breakthrough Growth in 2015 by Securing the Fortune 500

Mounting Security Breaches Drive Demand for New and Innovative Solutions to Secure Information Across All Industries

PALO ALTO, CA--(Marketwired - January 19, 2016) - Today, Vera (vera.com) announced the results of a breakthrough year, which began with the public launch of their first product in April 2015 and saw the company add more than a quarter million users at Fortune 500 companies in financial services, media & entertainment, manufacturing, and technology sectors. Vera also established a broad ecosystem of strategic partnerships and integrations with industry powerhouses like VMware, Dropbox, Box, Okta, and Centrify to reinforce security for enterprises both large and small.

"We're seeing a fundamental shift in the way enterprises think about security," said Robin Daniels, Chief Revenue Officer at Vera. "Enterprises across every industry have accepted that the days of solely reinforcing the corporate perimeter are over and the best way to protect themselves is to secure the data itself, allowing those protections to follow that information wherever it travels. Vera is the only solution today that achieves this goal while completely preserving the end users' experience. It's incredibly satisfying to see customers across all industries benefiting from the Vera approach and to see those benefits growing exponentially in the future."

In 2015, Vera jump-started a dynamic and new data security ecosystem, launching strategic partnerships and integrations with some of the industry's most recognized technology innovators. Since launching in April, Vera has partnered with Dropbox, Centrify, and Okta, and announced strategic integrations with Box, VMware, and Microsoft. Through this ecosystem, Vera enables enterprises to achieve consistent and dependable control over data internally and beyond traditional on-premise and cloud services, ensuring critical business information remains secure, trackable, and under the full control of the enterprise at all times.

Throughout the year, Vera received wide recognition for its innovative, scalable security solution. Recently named a 2015 Innovation Award Winner by Aragon Research, Vera was recognized as an innovator for excellence in data security. In December, CRN named Vera one of the "10 Coolest Security Startups of 2015", for the company's instantly deployable, zero-friction approach that secures files with strong encryption, global monitoring, and advanced data controls across any platform or device. And finally, Vera was recognized by Constellation Research in a recent report, Report: Software Challenging the Status Quo in the Way People Work, as a collaboration vendor influencing the future of work.

"Innovation is hard to measure, but our 2015 Innovation Award winners delivered on this front in many unique ways," said Jim Lundy, CEO and Founder of Aragon Research. Lundy continued, "What makes Vera unique is that it can complement and enhance different ecosystems in an increasingly mobile-centric world."

Vera is rapidly expanding, and currently hiring in all functions including engineering, customer success, operations, and sales worldwide. Interested in joining the Vera team? For information about current job openings, please visit https://www.vera.com/jobs/ or follow @VeraSecurity on Twitter.
