Object Matrix and Fortium Technologies have launched a joint solution offering secure media management for digital content archive storage. It combines security certified solutions from each provider to offer protection of media assets throughout their lifecycle.
The solution combines the MatrixStore object storage and Digital Content Governance platform from Object Matrix, which enables immediate yet secure access to content with sophisticated access controls, and Fortium Technology’s MediaSeal, which encrypts all types of media files during the editing and reviewing stages of post-production to help protect against leaks.
“The recent ransom cyber attacks only go to highlight the seriousness of the threat to all companies,” said Jonathan Morgan, CTO, Object Matrix. “Media production companies are particularly vulnerable because many of them keep all, or a significant portion, of their information assets in large media libraries which are often insufficiently protected.”
The joint solution ensures that media companies can apply detailed access control to all files within their media library to ensure no unauthorised access. Encryption means that should something accidentally be shared with, or accessed by, someone who is not authorised, the media file will be unreadable to that person.
“These cyber crime events underline the importance of reviewing what security procedures you have in place,” said Mathew Gilliat-Smith, CEO, Fortium Technologies. “This joint solution protects individual files and folders at a much higher level so that if networks are compromised your content remains protected. This joint offering will give media production companies an extra layer of security to keep valuable assets protected and with that much-needed peace of mind.”
