Video is really becoming almost like a document type, which means we have a set of expectations—whether it is an on-demand file or live video—that we have the same levels of content protection in terms of workflows and security. It’s time to take a serious look at enterprise video security.
For example, say you are a public company and you have a pre-earnings announcement. Only a certain set of people may be intended to view that announcement before it becomes public, or it may contain information that is only intended for a certain audience even after the earnings are released. That content needs to be securely available and protected as it travels across the network and anywhere it gets stored, even temporarily, on the network.
So, how does Multicast+ address enterprise video security?
The first layer of protection is encryption. All content is encrypted both while in transit and at rest. Only the receiver is going to be able to decrypt it.
The second layer of enterprise video security is the ability to multicast over HTTP and HTTPS.
And there is also a third layer of enterprise video security, some organizations choose to use single source multicast (SSM), which allows them to specify the specific source or sources from which the content may be retrieved.
So Multicast+ gives CIOs several mechanisms to ensure enterprise video security and confidentiality of the organization’s intellectual property.
More detail about Multicast+ can be found in our technical white paper Multicast+: Next-Generation Multicast in the Age of HTML5.
