IBC 2019: Signiant expands its SDCX platform to simplify content exchange
At IBC2019, intelligent file exchange specialist Signiant will introduce new capabilities to its SDCX (Software-Defined Content Exchange) SaaS platform to simplify secure content exchange between companies. These capabilities will first appear in the company’s newest product, Signiant Jet, which makes it easy to automate and accelerate the transfer of large files between geographically dispersed locations.
Targeted at ‘lights-out’ use cases, Jet meets the growing need to replace scripted FTP and legacy transfer tools with a faster, more reliable and more secure alternative. Jet was first introduced at the 2019 NAB Show. It is built on Signiant’s SDCX SaaS platform, which also underpins the company’s Media Shuttle solution that is now used by more than 500,000 professionals to send and share large files around the world. With its global footprint across media companies of all sizes, the platform is already connected to thousands of on-premises and cloud storage endpoints.
At IBC2019, Jet will include the new content exchange capabilities, offering a secure cloud handshake mechanism that simplifies intercompany transfers. The new functionality enables Jet customers to make storage endpoints private, discoverable or discoverable only to select partners in their supply chain.
Via a simple, secure web interface, companies can request a connection with a partner. Once both sides accept, specific jobs can be configured and mutually approved to allow for secure, automated transfers between the companies.
