MARZ shows commitment to content and cyber security by joining the Trusted Partner Network
Monsters Aliens Robots Zombies is happy to announce that our studio has been certified by the Trusted Partner Network (TPN).
The TPN is an international program that assesses third-party vendors in the entertainment industry who must meet thorough content security standards. The TPN aims to increase security within the industry, by creating a central directory of vendors who have successfully completed the assessment.
The initiative, spearheaded by the six major Hollywood studios, is a joint venture between the Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA) and the Content Delivery & Security Association (CDSA).
As a studio focused on delivering feature-film quality VFX on TV timelines to some of the biggest series in production today, staff at MARZ take content and cyber security seriously. Our goal is to fiercely protect the information and pre-release content that our clients trust us with, and the TPN certification is proof of that protection.
Leading the charge towards this golden standard of information technology and content security is MARZ's Director of Operations, Paul Belchamber.
"Our intention has always been to become a trusted vendor," Belchamber said, adding that he’s excited about the opportunities the certification provides to MARZ.
Completing the assessment allows the company to begin partnering with high-end studios and clients that require TPN certification prior to working with VFX vendors, who are then given access to sensitive content.
Even clients who aren’t necessarily requiring the TPN assessment often ask similar questions and have similar security models, he said. “No matter the project, we're excited to present our TPN certification as an assurance to our partners about MARZ's exceptional security infrastructure.”
The MPAA's content security guidelines and best practices, which MARZ is now aligned with, are available online.
