Clutch Solutions and Ericom Partner to Offer ZTEdge Zero Trust Solutions to Protect Content for Visual Effects, Animation, Gaming Companies

Isolation-Based Cloud Services Simplify Compliance with Trusted Partner Network (TPN) Requirements

New York, NY and Mesa, AZ (May 16, 2023) – Ericom Software, a leading provider of Zero Trust cloud cybersecurity solutions, and Clutch Solutions announce a new partnership to offer ZTEdge Isolation Solutions to their visual effects, animation, and gaming customers. With these offerings, Clutch Solutions, and its subsidiary Clutch Media, provide their entertainment and media customers with technologies that simplify compliance with Trusted Partner Network (TPN) requirements as outlined by the Motion Picture Association (MPA) Content Security Best Practices guidelines.

Cloud technology for video and visual effects production, and game development has exposed intellectual property (IP) and data to the risk of cyberattacks as studios, industry professionals, and third parties need remote access to data, content, and information. Unfortunately, cybercriminals have taken notice, causing the exposure of vulnerabilities at every stage of the supply chain, costing businesses money and exposing them to legal issues. The MPA Content Security Best Practices, maintained by the TPN, outlines best practices for keeping content secure.

Ericom Software delivers the solutions the industry needs to comply with the guidelines in a cloud security platform that is easy to implement and seamless for users.  This partnership between Ericom Software and Clutch Solutions provides the following solutions:

  • ZTEdge Web Isolation, Ericom’s Remote Browser Isolation (RBI) solution, enables creative artists and other users to safely access internet tools like email, collaboration tools, and web browsing from production devices, while fully protecting valuable intellectual property (IP) and pre-release content. RBI creates a virtual “air gap” between the internet and internal systems.
  • ZTEdge Clientless Zero Trust Network Access (ZTNA), which enables users to securely access private and public cloud apps from unmanaged third-party and BYOD devices, controlling each user’s permissions in accordance with Zero Trust principles of “always verify, never trust” and “least privilege access.”
  • ZTEdge Virtual Meeting Isolation (VMI), an innovative patent-pending isolation solution that protects sensitive content and data being shared in collaboration applications like Microsoft Teams and Zoom. When using VMI, IT teams can control what information is shared by virtual meeting participants on screens, audio, cameras, and more.

“Our entertainment and media industry clients wear many hats, but many of them look to technology experts like us to counsel them on the business IT solutions that meet their needs,” says Garrette Backie, Founder & CEO of Clutch Solutions. “This collaboration with Ericom to deliver Zero Trust security solutions allows us to deliver the secure access solutions they need for TPN compliance so they can focus on what they do best.”

“The team at Clutch Solutions brings a customer-first mindset to their relationships and a depth of knowledge about the entertainment and media industry that serves their customers well,” explained David Canellos, Ericom Software President and CEO. “We are excited to partner with them to bring innovative solutions to the compliance and security challenges their customers face.”
