Armor Secures New Platform Protecting the Intellectual Property of the Creative Community

April 27, 2016

Armored Info has turned to Armor to secure a new platform allowing content creators and media enthusiasts to collaborate in a secure and productive environment.

RICHARDSON, TEXAS – April 27, 2016 – While rarely discussed, intellectual property is just as desirable for threat actors as more commonly stolen data, including financial or healthcare information. Armored Info has selected Armor, the leader in active cyber defense, to protect a new platform providing creative content developers the necessary tools to securely collaborate without the fear their work will be stolen or intercepted in the production process.

While the 2014 Sony Pictures Entertainment breach remains one of the most recognizable media and entertainment breaches to date, piracy occurs in all aspects of digital media. Armored Info recognizes that victims of this type of targeted theft range from some of the world’s most influential content creators to small, independent artists who, in many instances, lack the proper security to prevent the theft of their intellectual property and investment.

Selected for its reputation of delivering managed, military-grade security through proactive threat intelligence and real-time mitigation, Armor provides protection for Armored Info’s “The Vault,” where files are securely stored and collaboration between parties is handled. Additionally, Armor secures the “AI Marketplace,” designed to provide content creators a safe environment to post work for promotional use or monetary gain.

Through Armor’s proprietary closed-loop system of intelligence, defense and control, and close collaboration with its elite team of cyber-intelligence professionals, Armored Info’s platform and creative content is protected by some of the most highly regarded talent in the security industry.

Key Highlights:

  • Armored Info’s cloud platform is a single secure location for content creators to manage their entire media workflow from production to final release, including secure storage, collaboration and distribution. Leveraging Fileprint™ technology and real-time access controls, it also helps prevent pre-release piracy.
  • The platform is designed to be accessed entirely through Web browsers, as mobility is crucial for the creative community. As long as the creative content member has an Internet-enabled device, the platform can be accessed from anywhere in the world.
  • Armor blocks more than 250 million attacks against its customers each month and delivers threat actor dwell times less than two days — 100 times shorter than the industry average.

Quotes

Jeff Schilling, CSO | Armor
“The processes and products of creatives is a unique and highly lucrative industry requiring the closed-loop protection Armor offers. We have a proven track record protecting customers with HIPAA and PCI data compliance measure to meet, as well as highly prioritized and sensitive information. We are honored to be trusted by an organization that is taking on the serious endeavor of protecting content creators and media enthusiasts’ intellectual property.”

Michael Fahey, CEO | Armored Info
“Security should be the last thing on the minds of creatives aspiring to produce everything from motion pictures to music. Considering the Copyright Act of 1976 is one of the only true forms of artist protection, we recognized a major gap in an entire subset of information that needed protection. While our platform is new, it is our hope that the importance of securing intellectual property of the creative community will spread quickly, and that our users will turn to us because of our commitment to security. We trust the cybersecurity experts at Armor to help keep the data of our growing customer base safe and secured.”
