Data security startup Vera and Centrify, an identity management software and cloud-based Identity-as-a-Service provider, have teamed up to help businesses protect sensitive files and data as it is shared in the cloud and across devices. The result of the partnership is a new offering combining Vera’s file access control and military-grade encryption with Centrify’s one-click authentication and user management platform, providing IT teams granular control and visibility over business-critical data, even after files have left the corporate domain. The integration offers flexible, user-centric, access management and advanced data protection for customers in every industry, from financial services and manufacturing, to healthcare and life sciences.

"The single most important factor in a company's security strategy is having strong, but non-intrusive and automated protection,” says Prakash Linga, chief technology officer and co-founder of Vera. “Our partnership with Centrify accelerates the rollout and consistent application of data-in-use security, allowing Centrify and Vera customers to centrally manage access to both business-critical apps and data in a hybrid world."

“When almost half of the breaches in 2015 started with compromised credentials, it’s essential for enterprises to shift their focus away from perimeter- and device-based solutions,” says Shreyas Sadalgi, senior vice president of business development at Centrify. “This partnership gives our customers strong encryption and data control abilities that seamlessly integrate with Centrify’s secure identity platform. In order for businesses to operate more efficiently, IT and security teams must shift their focus away from the company perimeter, with the confidence that their data is safe.”
