Recognized by Industry Leading Research Firm for Excellence and Innovation in Mobile Content and Information Rights Management

PALO ALTO, CA--(Marketwired - June 13, 2016) - Vera (vera.com), today announced that the company has been named a 2016 Hot Vendor in Mobile Content Management (MCM) by Aragon Research. In order to gain control over sensitive information stored on company-owned or BYOD devices, content management and data security is a top priority for IT and security leaders. Through its Information Rights Management platform, Vera allows IT and security teams to secure, track, and audit any type of digital information, enabling enterprises to maintain visibility and control over sensitive information, even when it travels outside of the network.

According to the Aragon Research report, "Hot Vendors in Mobile Content Management, 2016," the demand for content continues to grow and so does the need to manage content in multiple clouds and a variety of devices. Recognized as a Hot Vendor in MCM, Vera is changing the way businesses around the world protect enterprise data, through its ability to track and control access to critical content anywhere in the world.

"Mobile security has become a top priority and the type of content stored on these devices is a critical exposure," says Jim Lundy, Founder, CEO and Lead Analyst of Aragon Research. "The market is undergoing a significant shift and protecting the intellectual property of businesses today demands a content management strategy. Vera was recently recognized as a 2015 Technology Innovator for their outstanding innovation in this category and being selected as a Hot Vendor, further validates that Vera is changing the way enterprises think about data security."

"This recognition comes at a time when critical business information accessed by mobile devices is actually surpassing information accessed on traditional, old-school desktops and laptops -- and as IoT continues to invade the enterprise, the pace is only going to accelerate," said Ajay Arora, CEO and Co-founder of Vera. "Protecting information in this age where perimeters and digital borders are crumbling is one of the biggest security challenges of our time. We're in the middle of a tectonic shift where it's no longer sufficient to try and secure information by reinforcing nonexistent walls. We're honored to be selected as a Aragon Research Hot Vendor and lead a new breed of innovation changing everything we once held true about cybersecurity."

Vera has also been named a winner of the 2016 Red Herring Top 100 North America award, a prestigious list honoring the year's top private technology ventures based in North America.
