Any business taking advantage of video to provide a compelling experience for their customers, clients, or employees is already ahead of the game. However, leveraging this innovative approach requires paying close attention to issues related to security and compliance. After all, keeping your videos secure and safe from hackers while still meeting regulatory compliance is of paramount importance.
In a modern technological world where AI innovations help both the bad actors and those fighting them, securing corporate video assets is a complex process. Companies can use their own technical assets, like firewalls and active directory, but that is only a partial solution. A mix of approaches is necessary to ensure enterprise video content remains secure and compliant.
Let’s take a closer look at this critical issue for today’s enterprise.
Using Existing Enterprise Assets for Video Security and Compliance?
A typical enterprise boasts a host of assets to secure its technical infrastructure and any stored content. Firewalls, SAML, Active Directory, LDAP, and other technologies make it possible to gate access to content. This ensures only those with the right security credentials are able to view the organization’s videos.
Still, security holes and vulnerabilities exist within this scenario. What if an employee leaves their mobile device in a coffee shop, with passwords conveniently stored within a web browser? Additionally, the modern hacker is able to use AI and other tech innovations to get past firewalls and other traditional cybersecurity protections.
On the other hand, managing legal compliance when it comes to video requires a different approach. But filtering content based on audience or even moderating it to ensure it complies with current regulations demands a significant manual effort.
Thankfully, advancements in the world of enterprise video make content security and compliance an easier process. Leveraging a platform to control video delivery, while using in-asset metadata to ensure compliance streamlines a resource-intensive effort. The benefits of any enterprise are numerous.
Taking a Managed Approach to Securing Enterprise Video Content
When considering enterprise video asset security, companies often worry about securing access to the video itself, while others are focused on the content within the video. Whatever the scenario, leveraging a managed approach allows the organization to easily handle both situations. In this case, use a centralized enterprise video platform with intelligent security features that seamlessly integrate with the enterprise’s existing cybersecurity assets. This strategy ensures the video content remains secure in an efficient manner.
One part of this approach involves using multi-factor authentication to protect video assets, mitigating the risk of nefarious online actors compromising security. However, it’s important not to adversely impact the user experience after implementation. Companies must walk a fine line in this area, so getting feedback from the end-user on the authentication process becomes critical.
Additionally, state of the art encryption techniques ensure video assets remain protected if they are ever found “in the wild.” When combined with superior authentication and support for industry-leading access protocols, the company’s valuable video content remains secure.
A Better Way to Ensure the Legal Compliance of Security Assets
The same enterprise video platform making content access more secure should also offer a myriad of benefits when it comes to corporate security and compliance, including:
- Dynamic filtering and aggregation of video content without having to manually enter a massive amount of automated metadata tagging with dynamic filtering and aggregation of video content.
- Automated watermarking to ensure the security and authenticity of videos.
- Automated transcription of videos allows any banned keywords and to allow any banned content to be filtered without human intervention.
- Domain restriction management to prevent videos from being viewed in regions where they aren’t relevant or compliant.
- Real-time moderation and analytics that provide significant cost savings by reporting and managing system access, usage, and video performance.
Additionally, aggregating and storing all of a company’s video assets in a centralized location makes it easier to keep content secure. The enterprise video platform also offers seamless scalability, which is essential for the continued growth of any organization. Additionally, deep analytics and an easy-to-use reporting dashboard facilitate the tracking of any video assets’ performance.
Ultimately, a managed enterprise video platform allows organizations to truly get a significant return from their investment in corporate videos.
