London –   Fortium,
innovative provider of digital content security solutions to the media and entertainment
industry, will demonstrate MediaSeal LiveFolders™, its new encryption
on-the-fly technology, with Signiant at IBC 2017. LiveFolders functionality will
be shown as an enhanced security feature interoperating with Signiant’s Media
Shuttle, the industry-standard software-as-a-service solution for sending and
sharing large media files. The demo can be seen at the Signiant stand, 14.L08.
LiveFolders enhances cybersecurity by making encryption
happen automatically and transparently to the user. Files are encrypted
instantly when saved to a Live Folder and decrypted automatically when accessed
by an authenticated user. As a new feature of Media Shuttle, LiveFolders
ensures that files are encrypted whenever they are created, saved or
transferred. Sensitive content is kept safe from hackers and accidental sharing
with unauthorized parties.
“LiveFolders is an essential component to total workflow
security,” said Fortium CEO Mathew Gilliat-Smith. “It makes encryption fast, simple
and routine. It avoids common human errors, such as sending a file to the wrong
party, that can lead to costly security breaches.”
Signiant is the
leading provider of SaaS solutions for fast, reliable global access to media
files, and is offering LiveFolders as an enhanced security option for Media
Shuttle. LiveFolders will allow Media Shuttle users to seamlessly protect
content while using the product normally. Files copied to or created in Live
Folder are encrypted at rest and in transfer.

“We’re working
closely with customers to accommodate their desire for the Media Shuttle
framework to support a broad range of workflows, and we are excited to be
demonstrating Fortium’s security in Media Shuttle for situations where extreme
content security is paramount,” said Margaret Craig, CEO at Signiant.
Media Shuttle is used by hundreds of thousands of media
professionals around the world. Delivered as a SaaS solution, Shuttle’s simple
Web interface provides authenticated users with access to files stored within
the enterprise or in the cloud.
“The continuing high profile
cyber breaches of unreleased TV and movie content means that applying security
across the whole workflow, not just in transfer, is no longer just an option –
it’s a necessity,” said Gilliat- Smith. “Customers naturally want our software to work well
with their other mission- critical applications, so alignment with Media
Shuttle is in high demand.”
