Verizon Digital Media Services, Inc. Key Developments

Verizon Digital Media Services and thePlatform Form Strategic Alliance to Provide End-To-End Online Video Solution

Verizon Digital Media Services and thePlatform announced a new strategic alliance to accelerate major media and pay-TV operators' plans for multiscreen video delivery. The companies have integrated the Verizon Digital Media Services suite of video services and thePlatform's mpx video-management system to form a complete solution, which the companies will jointly sell. The alliance brings to market a streamlined workflow for online video streaming, from content management through delivery to consumers on multiple screens. The combined solution will allow customers to manage a complete IP-video solution from a single Web-based console. The leading cloud-based video publishing and management platform of thePlatform and Verizon's video workflow solution - which includes single-format media processing for the high quality playback across devices and content delivery network -unite the video ecosystem in one integrated offering. The integration provides scale and quality of experience while simplifying complex features like dynamic ad insertion, closed captioning and analytics. Customers will be able to manage files and metadata; set business and monetization policies; enforce content viewing rights; provision video players; and distribute videos to their own websites, third-party sites, smartphones, tablets, game consoles and more. The new alliance has found early success in the marketplace, having launched two key customers in recent months. The end-to-end Verizon Digital Media Services solution powers the authenticated TV Everywhere experience for REVOLT TV. Bellator, a mixed martial arts league co-owned by Viacom, recently launched a completely new version of bellator.com, built from the ground up using the integrated Verizon Digital Media Services and mpx solution.

Verizon Digital Media Services Announces the Beta Launch of Cloud-Based Web Application Firewall

Verizon Digital Media Services announced the beta launch of cloud-based Web application firewall. The Verizon WAF sets a new standard for reaction time to attacks: Once a new exploit has been identified, WAF rule sets - procedures that control access to websites - can be selected and deployed worldwide within minutes. The Verizon WAF has more rule sets deployed to the cloud than other cloud alternatives. And a tightly integrated content delivery network and WAF command-and-control plane give customers more controls and tools to block and fend off attackers. WAFs, an increasingly important security service needed to protect websites and Web applications, have traditionally been deployed on customers' premises and have involved complex customizations to support the applications they protect. By contrast, a WAF deployed in the cloud offers customers cost savings, on-demand scalability, always-on capabilities and swift time-to-market benefits. The Verizon Digital Media Services cloud deployed WAF service offers an affordable, CDN-integrated, always up-to-date solution for protecting websites and increasing their performance. It delivers a broad set of rules to combat a wide range of possible attacks. This is accomplished by supporting a combination of WAF rule sets that work in tandem: the generalized ModSecurity Core Rule Set from the Open Web Application Security Project, known as OWASP, and the advanced, commercial rule set from Trustwave, a leader in Web security. Both rule sets, as well as the ModSecurity WAF the Verizon WAF is built on, are backed by Trustwave threat intelligence and research. The level of control offered to the customer also is a significant step forward in cloud-based security. Updates can be pushed out in less than five minutes to all Verizon EdgeCast servers on a worldwide basis - up to 900% faster than competitive offerings. The WAF is part of the Verizon Digital Media Services Defend product suite, which includes built-in protection against network-layer distributed denial of service attacks and origin-cloaking capabilities via Origin Shield.
