Following a spate of cyber attacks on media companies, Qvest Media has launched a dedicated IT security division and is using IBC to discuss how it can help protect media data in the digital age.
The systems architect and ICT integration firm is focusing on strategies and solutions for assessing, detecting, monitoring, addressing, preventing and managing cyber risks.
This work is being channelled through a newly inaugurated business unit, called QM Cyber Security, that is providing consultancy, integration and managed services to broadcasters and other media companies.
Working with SecurView, QM Cyber Security will handle data centre and cloud security, malware analysis and protection, mobile device management and access policy management as well as content security.
A Security Operation Centre has been established in Germany for the new unit, which will offer 24/7 monitoring services as well as incident recovery services.
Also at IBC, Qvest Media has announced the acquisition of German company HMS, a developer of hardware and software for broadcast automation.
