Both dock10 and Piksel have been awarded the Committed to Security Mark from the Digital Production Partnership (DPP).
The certification is based on adherence to a checklist of security technologies, testing and best practices, and is designed to prevent content from falling into the hands of illegal distributors.
Both are among the first companies to take part in the programme.
Paul Clennell, CTO at dock10, said: “At dock10, we have always pursued the highest security integrity, but this is the first time that all of the really key criteria for cybersecurity have been distilled into a single checklist. The Committed to Security Mark confirms that all our systems, practices and procedures are secure, and that all of the content and assets our clients entrust to us are as safe as possible. We are grateful for the DPP’s efforts to lead the way in formalising customer expectations and highlighting what broadcasters, media companies and their suppliers should be looking for when it comes to cybersecurity.”
“Effective content security is paramount in an industry where piracy is predicted to cost $52 billion by 2022,” added Kristan Bullett, head of solutions at Piksel. “Our microservices architecture is built from the ground up to offer security, flexibility and scalability for customers seeking to deploy and manage content. This certification shows that content security is at the top of our agenda and that customer content is safe in our hands.”
