We are Preava

We prevent your users from emailing unwanted recipients.


At Preava, our mission is to empower your most valuable asset, your employees, to make informed security decisions when handling sensitive data. Through our innovative outbound email security tool, we strive to prevent emails and attachments from being sent to the wrong people, ensuring your confidential information remains secure.

Our story

It all started with VeraSafe — one of the largest boutique privacy-compliance consultancies in the U.S. VeraSafe routinely helps its client react to security incidents resulting from their users emailing the wrong recipients.

Recognizing that company policies, security awareness training, and legacy email security solutions offered inadequate protection, VeraSafe sought more effective options.
Underwhelmed by the software products on the market, VeraSafe believed a simpler, more automated approach to help prevent misdirected emails must be possible.

To answer this need, VeraSafe launched
Preava, a technical safeguard that prevents users from leaking email data and emailing the wrong recipients.
