Fortium Partners with Avid to Make MediaSeal File Encryption Available for All in the Post-Production Community

Fortium Technologies announced that it has signed a license agreement with Avid ® to make MediaSeal file encryption at-rest accessible to all of the Avid post-production community. MediaSeal is compatible with the Avid Everywhere applications and is designed to encrypt all types of media files during the editing and review stages of post-production in order to help protect against leaks caused by hacking, piracy or accidental distribution. By integrating encryption at-rest with an advanced access control system it ensures that files remain protected after they have been distributed and throughout the post production process so that only authorized project members may view or work on them.
