IT security for media companies: Qvest Media expands service scope of QM Security with cloud solution
Cologne, 04 October 2018: Qvest Media, a world-leading systems architect and ICT integrator, is working with SecurView to expand its cybersecurity portfolio for media companies to protect applications, data and media assets in the cloud. Due to the recent majority stake of Qvest Media shareholder RAG Stiftung Beteiligungsgesellschaft mbH in SecurView, both companies are now part of the same group of companies and able to leverage synergies: following the successful launch of the cloud management platform Qvest.Cloud, SecurView’s cloud security components will be integrated into it. QM Security offers a comprehensive security package consisting of 24/7 monitoring & support, analytics, penetration testing, consulting for social engineering and the development of appropriate prevention measures.
With the growing proliferation of IP technologies, cybersecurity is increasingly a critical issue for media companies. In order to advise its customers comprehensively in this area and offer tailor-made security solutions, Qvest Media is strengthening its cooperation with SecurView, an internationally well positioned provider of IT security solutions and services. In addition, QM Security integrates security solutions from the portfolio of the network specialist Cisco, who is also a shareholder in SecurView.
The IT security services developed jointly by Qvest Media and SecurView cover all areas that media companies need to protect from internal and external attacks on their IT infrastructure: from the company network to the complete media supply chain to the protection of intellectual property after publication of content. “Digital technologies in the media and entertainment industry no longer cover just specific broadcast technology, but they already include many of the standard IT components,” said Thomas Müller, Director of Qvest Media. “We also see a shift from locally installed hardware to cloud services and a strong increase in the use of the Internet for research, media production and distribution,” he added.
To protect applications, media content and other data in the cloud, Qvest Media combines its media technology know-how with SecurView’s cloud security framework. In addition, QM Security utilises SecurityHQ, oneApp and IDA, the ISE Deployment Assistant (Cisco Identity Service Engine). Based on the IT security standards EBU R 143 and ISO 27001, QM Security offers security concepts and solutions that secure applications of third parties, such as cloud providers, for example, protect production workflows and infrastructure, block viruses, Trojans, ransomware and other malware, and provide endpoint security and protection for commercial processes.
Qvest Media offers the option to arrange a free cloud security assessment.
