Secure Streaming Explained
The following are the types of security we currently offer.
Prevent Recording - by building a secure token into your media file viewers
are prevented from ripping your content
IP Management - by creating a specific module viewers' access can be restricted by location (e.g. country, offices)
Domain Restrictions - by restricting access to the streaming server by URL, content cannot be plagiarised
