ObserveID to Partner With GPL Technologies, Brining Identity Security to the Entertainment Industry

ObserveID, an innovator in real-time identity security and governance for hybrid and multi-cloud architectures, is excited to announce that it has partnered with GPL Technologies, a leading provider of technology integration services for Media & Entertainment (M&E) companies, to provide identity security and Cloud Infrastructure Entitlement Management (CIEM) to M&E customers worldwide. The companies are pleased to announce that together they will implement ObserveID’s flagship identity security platform for one of the major motion picture studios in the world, located in Burbank, California.

“We are excited to partner with GPL to provide Identity Security to the Media and Entertainment industry.” Says ObserveID Co-Founder, Axay Desai. “Just like any other vertical, the M&E industry is constantly under attack by cybercriminals. The risk of data leakage and reputational damage can be an existential issue for studios where intellectual property is the final product, and that risk grows as systems and services expand across public and private clouds with multiple identity providers. ObserveID provides a comprehensive system for managing and monitoring these systems, which helps users, administrators, and InfoSec teams control risk.”

Todd Cogan, President of GPL Technologies, is also bullish about the partnership and eager to bring the solution to the greater M&E community.

“GPL is pleased to partner with ObserveID to serve our customers in the Media and Entertainment industry,” says Cogan. “Technology services are increasingly interconnected and reliant upon an ever-growing number of identity providers both on- and off-premises. Coordinating information security across the enterprise is one of the biggest challenges information security teams face today, and ObserveID’s modern approach to unifying identity management is an elegant solution to this issue. It’s an easy-to-navigate, flexible, and cost-effective platform made selecting ObserveID an easy choice for us.”

The entertainment industry has been focusing more intently on information security efforts over the past few years. MovieLabs, a nonprofit organization dedicated to advancing research in motion picture distribution and protection, released a document addressing security architecture in content creation. ObserveID is proud to be at the forefront of addressing principles in MovieLab’s security requirements.

Some of these solutions include:

  • Identity Management for Hybrid and Multi-Cloud Environments
  • Privileged Access Management
  • Threat Analysis and Intelligence

ObserveID remains committed to pioneering solutions that safeguard identity security. The partnership with GPL Technologies is a testament to their dedication to staying ahead in an ever-evolving digital landscape and addressing the unique challenges faced by media and entertainment companies.

“Identity Security in the M&E industry poses a significant challenge as each production may work as an independent company,” says Desai. “Identity can be part of multiple productions at once and personnel can move frequently between them, making identity management highly complex. ObserveID directly addresses this issue, and we are extremely happy and proud to work with the M&E industry to help secure and manage their identity posture.”
