Signiant Inc, a leader in intelligent file transfer software has announced new customers from the world's top Media & Entertainment companies. New additions to the Signiant family announced by them include MENA entertainment network OSN and Jaunt, who adopted Signiant to move their most valuable assets.

OSN is known for introducing new technologies and services to the region. “We’ve known the team at Signiant for some time, so it’s great to now add them to the OSN list of partners,” said Mark Billing, VP of Broadcast Operations and Technology at OSN. “The need for safe, secure and cost-efficient file delivery is becoming more and more important for us as our content volumes increase and our platform reach grows across the region enabled by the growth of our diverse distribution platforms. The solution also enables us to share content safely and securely with partners and support functions anywhere in the world, all contributing to our ability to exceed the expectations of our audience.”

Signiant said in a statement the trend has been building over the past few years, with organizations throughout the industry increasingly choosing Signiant for mission-critical file movement needs, helping to make Signiant one of the fastest growing technology companies in the media industry.

In the past year, Signiant continued to gain traction in many of the newer M&E categories, including VR/AR, online video, and gaming, while further strengthening its stronghold in traditional media. Signiant's accelerated file transfer technology was used in the production and distribution of 8 of the 10 top sporting events worldwide in 2017 and played a role in all of the top 10 films of the year. Its Media Shuttle product recently passed several major milestones in its global reach, with 200,000 users from 25,000 companies in more than 200 countries.

The company's portfolio of three products can support nearly every file transfer use case in the Media & Entertainment industry said the statement.

Manager + Agents is Signiant’s flagship, on-premises solution for automated and accelerated file movement between geographically dispersed data centers.
Flight is an innovative cloud-native SaaS solution that transports large data sets into and out of any cloud service and is capable of speeds up to multi Gbps.
Media Shuttle is quite simply the easiest way for users to send and share large files fast. The cloud-native SaaS solution is the de facto standard for person-initiated file transfers in the M&E industry.

Most major media customers use all three of Signiant's products. The software offerings can be deployed separately in stand-alone applications or tied together to initiate automated workflows from a single Manager. The Manager can orchestrate site-to-site file movement via Agents, initiate cloud transfers via Flight, and kick off system-to-person deliveries through Media Shuttle.
