Vera Unveils Industry's First IRM-as-a-Service Platform to Add Advanced Data Security and Military-Grade Encryption to Any App

New SaaS Platform Enables Application Developers to Add Strong Information Rights Management, Advanced Data Security and Encryption to Any App, Protecting Sensitive Data Anywhere It Travels

PALO ALTO, CA --(Marketwired - March 29, 2016) - Today, Vera (vera.com) announced the launch of its new IRM-as-a-Service (IRMaaS) platform, allowing developers to use Vera's industry-leading data software development kit (SDK) to build encryption, tracking, policy enforcement, and access control into third party and custom business applications. By using Vera's SDK and RESTful APIs, enterprises can directly protect and manage access to any data generated by applications. Once encrypted, security teams can use Vera to gain full visibility into how that data is used, anywhere it travels.

"In today's world, we can no longer afford to treat data security as an add-on or afterthought. Instead, we must establish a model that weaves security directly into the entire application stack," said Ajay Arora, CEO and co-founder of Vera. "We're building a future where businesses don't have to worry about where their data travels or who has access. Our team is establishing Vera as the trusted standard for securing and sharing any type of business information. The next step in this journey is to make our IRM platform available as a service to anyone since in today's world impenetrable and invisible security is key to the success and viability of every business application."

For the first time, developers can add impenetrable, invisible IRM and data security to new applications from the outset or retrofit legacy applications. Developers can use the Vera client SDK, granting any application the ability to secure data, set IRM policy and permissions, and even revoke access to sensitive files. Alternatively, development teams can leverage Vera's cloud platform directly to secure data through a set of RESTful APIs. Vera's SDK and APIs are designed to support applications across multiple platforms, including Mac, Linux, and Windows.

"One of the criteria to be part of the Skyhigh Cloud Security Technology Partner (CSTP) program is the ability for customers to quickly and easily integrate security into their existing tools," said Chris Cesio, vice president of business development and channel for Skyhigh Networks. "Vera's powerful SDK and APIs make it simple and straightforward for developers to add secure encryption and Information Rights Management (IRM) as a service into their applications. Businesses everywhere can be sure that their data is protected anywhere it goes, inside the firewall and beyond, while maximizing the value of their existing technology and workflows."

Through its innovative security solution, Vera secures and tracks any type of digital information wherever it travels -- across all users, devices, applications, and platforms in real-time. With more than a quarter million users at Fortune 500 companies in the financial services, media and entertainment, manufacturing, and technology sectors, Vera is positioned to become the trusted standard for businesses to share and secure all confidential information. IRM-as-a-Service is now available through Vera's SDK to customers and developers through the Vera Dashboard.
