The latest MPA Security Best Practices guidelines greenlight Remote Browser Isolation (RBI) for controlling data sharing functions and protecting valuable content and intellectual property on internet-connected devices.
This enables production companies and VFX studios to give their team access to email and web browsing – in a simple and secure way – on their production workstations, while still protecting pre-release content from leaking.
Background – what is MPA and TPN?
MPA:s Data Security guidelines are designed to protect content and intellectual property for film and TV productions from leaking before release.
In 2018, the Trusted Partner Network was launched – an industry-wide film and television content security initiative designed to help prevent leaks, breaches, and hacks in the production pipeline prior to a film or TV show’s intended release.
A studio that wants to participate in the TPN undergoes an assessment to ensure that they meet MPA’s guidelines for content protection. Participation gives the studio an important security stamp in the industry, which may be what is required to work on larger film and TV productions.
To be able to comply with the guidelines, artists would previously not be able to connect their production devices to the internet. That limitation has caused a frustration for artists and a very inefficient workflow.
Remote Browser Isolation is now recommended
Life just got much simpler for VFX production houses that need to be TPN compliant or are subject to studio-mandated security audits.
