Startup touts safe sharing of Office 365 documents

Startup Vera promises to secure Microsoft Office 365 documents no matter where they go using policies set by the businesses that create them.

The company lets users restrict access to individual documents or parts of documents in order to keep the content secure even if devices that contain them are stolen.

Vera already supported Office documents, but now it can protect them within Microsoft’s Office 365 software-as-a-service environment.
