IT Security: keeping productions safe

Cybersecurity has become an increasing concern for businesses globally. The threats are covering new malware, ransomware, phishing, and attacks due to accidental insiders. And the numbers behind those attacks have risen dramatically. 7 out of 10 organizations say their security risk increased significantly in 2017[1]. Attackers continuously evolving their techniques, making protection difficult. Countermeasures are inevitable, especially for broadcasters.

the industry's only video server with a security package including antivirus as standard feature

Given a strong convergence in international TV productions and the increasing number of cyber threats over the past few years, ORF and STRYME adopted a proactive stance to tackle these challenges. They stepped up IT security, implemented patch managements on quarterly basis as well as a country-wide escalation matrix, and adapted both structures and the organization to the rapidly changing environment and industry standards. To further boost server protection, STRYME’s IT experts developed a brand-new future-proof solution: a security package with an integrated antivirus software made by STRYME.

What includes GENESIX Security Package

To boost resilience of a system run on a GENESIX VideoServer, STRYME uses a hardened Windows system, regular update cycles and its in-house antivirus software. This specially developed antivirus software is both a standard and unique feature of the security package. It provides the best possible protection without interfaces and without impacting the performance of the GENESIX VideoServer or the systems run on it. To ensure this high security standard, STRYME recommends its Elite Care Pack, complete with level 3 support.

It is an extremely resistant and future-proof solution that keeps threats at bay. To maintain this high security level, we keep track of the latest developments and constantly improve and update our systems and the antivirus software.
