DejaSoft has released version 3.2 of DejaEdit to further expand its Avid remote file sharing software and to support Microsoft Azure secure storage. Another major highlight includes the safeguarding of project files with robust prior encryption before they are directed to an assigned media server chosen by the customer.
DejaEdit enables multiple remote Avid editing and storage systems to synchronize files and bins with each other, securely across the internet, ensuring that editors and other contributors can collaborate using shared assets, irrespective of where they are located. DejaSoft also provides its customers with multiple options for media server configurations that range from a simple turnkey approach, to using existing cloud storage accounts, or retaining the media files in-house.
Storage provided by Amazon Web Services, Wasabi and Backblaze are all already supported in DejaEdit. Alternatively, customers who would like to keep their media files in-house can configure their own media server using open source object storage software MinIO. DejaEdit version 3.2 now allows customers to store media files to their Microsoft Azure Blob Storage account.
DejaSoft CTO Nikolai Waldman says, “Security of editing data is of primary importance to us. DejaEdit 3.2 now encrypts media files transparently for each project with a unique 256-bit key before they are sent to the media server. They are then decrypted after being downloaded to the client. This ensures that data saved on the media server – or if intercepted in transit – is unintelligible to unauthorized people.”
“This exciting new development adds stringent protection to reassure customers that their project-based media files are secure at all times,” says DejaSoft CEO Clas Hakeröd. “At DejaSoft, we work extremely hard at further enhancing security features in DejaEdit and continuously pay attention to what our customers need.”
