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 cyberattacks only go to highlight the seriousness of the threat to all companies,” commented 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 unauthorized access. Encryption means that should something accidentally be shared with, or accessed by, someone who is not authorized, the media file will be unreadable to that person.
“These Cybercrime events underline the importance of reviewing what security procedures you have in place. This joint solution protects individual files and folders at a much higher level so that if networks are compromised your content remains protected,” commented Mathew Gilliat-Smith, CEO, Fortium Technologies. “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.”
Object Matrix provides digital content governance & object storage platforms. The company was built on the philosophy that archive systems should be scalable and interoperable, as well as ensuring instant access to data and metadata. Its flagship product, MatrixStore, is an integrated object storage software solution providing protection and governance for the lifetime of any digital content. It’s used by global organisations that create, curate, and distribute video content, including NBC Universal, TV Globo, the BBC & BT.
