Vera to Power Canon Solutions America's New Security Solutions and Services Strategy
Tuesday, February 13, 2018

-- Vera's data-centric security technology is designed to encrypt customer data in transit, at rest, and in use , helping to protect sensitive information from data loss and damaging breaches

MELVILLE, N.Y. and PALO ALTO, Calif., Feb. 13, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Today at the One Canon press and analyst event in Hollywood, FL Canon Solutions America, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Canon U.S.A., Inc., with over 78,000 customers, announced it has selected Vera to provide technology designed to help protect Canon customers' intellectual property and critical business information. By embracing a data-centric approach to security, we've entered into a new and exciting era where the old paradigm of perimeter-based approaches are no longer the unquestioned norm. Together with Vera's encryption and data protection technology, Canon Solutions America can now provide its customers with the technology to help protect their data anywhere, any time and give them the ability to control access to that data at the file level.

Canon Solutions America President, Peter Kowalczuk, recalls a recent conversation with a large Fortune 1000 financial customer: "We asked them how they were securing their environment and they were confident their current security posture met all requirements. We asked that same customer how they control access to sensitive email and the attachments, once they've left the corporate domain, and the silence was deafening. At that moment, we knew we had an offering that would help our customers collaborate and share content without compromising security. Through our new relationship with Vera, we can help our customers with protecting their information throughout their organization, including documents scanned on Canon imageRUNNER ADVANCE MFPs, and help secure workflows across a complex organization."

Vera's innovative data-centric security platform gives customers the ability to encrypt, track, and help control how content is accessed, or how it's shared. Combining Vera's strong security and dynamic control with Canon Solutions America's innovative digital and business services platform, customers will now have access to powerful new security capabilities, designed to give users dynamic access control over their files. As part of this new relationship, Canon Solutions America's sales force will offer Vera products and services as a core offering of their Security Solutions and Services portfolio. Additionally, Canon Solutions America plans to integrate Vera's data security solution across its solutions portfolio to provide its customers with the tools to help protect sensitive files as they flow in an out of customer systems.

Canon Solutions America has chosen Vera to:

    --  Enable secure content and file sharing: From local storage to cloud
        content management, Vera helps to ensure only authorized parties can
        access sensitive files. The platform has the ability to seamlessly boost
        the security of any file that leaves an organization with additional
        encryption, file-level usage rights, and document classification, and
        can maintain that control where the file travels.
    --  Provide dynamic authentication for critical information: Vera's
        policy-driven multi-factor authentication protects highly-classified
        information, helping to ensure only authorized recipients can access it.
        Based on the sensitivity of a document, where it's been stored, and who
        has access, Vera has the capability to require additional authentication
        factors to confirm they are the right party to access sensitive data.
    --  Help customers comply with EU regulations and protect customer data:
        Vera helps to accelerate enterprises' ability to comply with a complex
        web of state, federal, and international regulations, including the EU's
        impending General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). Vera seeks to
        provide a 360-degree audit trail and chain of custody which is necessary
        for global risk and compliance officers to help control what users can
        and cannot do with enterprise data while simultaneously using technology
        which helps preserve their security, across all applications, devices,
        and platforms.

"Our mission is to protect our customer's most sensitive data, anywhere and always," said Ajay Arora, CEO and co-founder of Vera. "Canon's products are at the center of how businesses around the world work, and we're inspired by their philosophy of working together for the common good. Through our new relationship, we are going to advance the way organizations collaborate, create, and share their visions, more securely."

As companies seek frictionless security solutions to protect personal and corporate data, this relationship brings together Vera's industry-leading data security platform with Canon's suite of innovative products that shape our experience every day. This dynamic platform helps organizations take strides toward adhering with the information security CIA standard of Confidentiality, Integrity and Availability. Businesses can now have the ability to get 360-degree insight into how confidential data is being accessed, the ability to instantly revoke file access, and the tools they need to continually set and adapt security policies, even after information has left their network.
