ST. LOUIS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--As the broadcast industry modernizes to benefit from the increased connectivity through IP technology, the need for integrated security continues to increase. Digital assets such as video files, graphics, and data now move freely across IP networks, making them more vulnerable to individuals outside the previously closed, proprietary broadcast workflow chain. To address this need, Grass Valley and Tripwire, both Belden Brands, offer broadcast technology with integrated security features.
“Our company is in a unique position to support the modernization of the broadcast industry. Having both leading broadcast and cybersecurity companies under the same roof, we can integrate solutions that meet the needs of broadcasters today and in the future,” said John Stroup, President, CEO, and Chairman of Belden. “We can help broadcasters realize the benefits of IP, while embedding cybersecurity best practices to protect our customers’ valuable digital assets.”
The integration strategy follows a simple three-step principle: secure the network; secure the servers; secure the dedicated broadcast equipment. Grass Valley has applied this to its iTX Integrated Playout platform and plans to extend this to the rest of the Grass Valley portfolio.
The integrated secure broadcast solutions leverage Tripwire® IP360™, a vulnerability and risk management solution, providing complete visibility into the enterprise network, including all networked devices and their associated operating systems, applications and vulnerabilities. This provides a key foundational control for effective security risk management.
The integrated solutions maintain security across the network, offering advanced threat detection to ensure broadcast systems are protected against new threats. The iTX Playout platform was the first in the broadcast industry verified to integrate with Tripwire security solutions.
Tripwire is a leading provider of security, compliance and IT operations solutions for enterprises, industrial organizations, service providers and government agencies. Tripwire solutions are based on high-fidelity asset visibility and deep endpoint intelligence combined with business context; together these solutions integrate and automate security and IT operations.
