This Essential Guide discusses the new security challenges presented by IP & cloud infrastructure and the need to move from traditional perimeter based approaches to using encryption, OAUTH 2.0 and Zero Trust methodologies. 

The conversation around security seems to have come out of nowhere and is gathering momentum. And as more broadcasters take advantage of IP, then the issues regarding security are gaining much more scrutiny. 

Security isn’t new to broadcasters as we’ve been protecting high-value media assets and transmissions since the dawn of television. However, the barrier to entry in terms of cost and understanding has been huge meaning that the average criminal needed specialist knowledge, expertise, and experience to be able to acquire broadcast media.

The adoption of IP by broadcasters requires a new approach to security. We can no longer rely on the technical expertise needed to decode video and audio and must learn from other industries such as finance and medical imaging to understand how broadcasters can build highly secure datacenters and networks.

Download this Essential Guide now. It has been written for technologists, broadcast engineers, their managers, and anybody looking to understand the security challenges in their broadcast IP infrastructures.
