YellowDog Secures ISE Accreditation for its Multi-Cloud Platform
Cybersecurity and data security evaluations will spur technology platforms to tighten their data protection capabilities and enhance their services.
FREMONT, CA: Several high profile leaks have shaken the media industry over the last year. It has spurred organizations to focus on the protection of digital IP to secure their data. Recently, YellowDog, a provider of multi-cloud rendering for visual effects and animation, received accreditation from the Independent Security Evaluators (ISE), making it the first European cloud rendering company to get the certification.
Based in the UK, YellowDog is one of the premier technology scale-up businesses in Europe. It specializes in delivering robust optimization solutions to multiple industrial sectors, including CGI, financial services, and aerospace, among others. Since its inception in the year 2015, YellowDog has helped globally leading companies in over 40 countries to scale, control, and optimize their operations. It has enabled them to accelerate and enhance sophisticated data processes leveraging its intelligent, predictive scheduling and orchestration platform for hybrid and multi-cloud management.
Media piracy is predicted to cost the entertainment industry approximately £41 billion in lost revenue by the year 2022. The intelligent software solution by YellowDog is designed to mitigate the risk of piracy and data breaches when leveraging public and private clouds for visual effects, animation, and visualization studios, and streamline the production process.
During the testing stage, the cloud render platform by YellowDog was subjected to advanced automated tools and manual tests to identify the vulnerabilities of the technology which could potentially lead to the compromise of assets or user information, hinder the services, or lead to other attacks.
The ISE accreditation will likely raise the bar among tech vendors eager to collaborate with global media giants such as Disney. The Financial and Aerospace industries served by YellowDog will also greatly benefit from the accreditation of its data security capabilities.
With the advancements in technology, the security landscape is becoming more demanding. Data security plays a vital role across various sectors, including media and entertainment, financial service, and so on. The ISE accreditation of YellowDog’s platform will pave the way for technology solution providers to evaluate their data protection capabilities, thus ensuring robust cybersecurity. It will also encourage international enterprises to access the pool of technology platforms across Europe.
