ioGates, developers of ultra-secure file-sharing services for media professionals, has announced a new subscription pricing model that makes its ultra-secure ioGates ‘Smart Link’ sharing solution accessible to individual users, small businesses and enterprises starting as low as 28 euro / 33 USD per month. Ideal for DITs that need to share dailies, video editors that need to facilitate client review and approvals and media professionals that share content outside of their media asset management system, ioGates Smart Link features sharing automation, desktop app for deep control and ultra-secure two-factor authentication and watermarking.
“Our customers are typically organizations such as film productions, broadcast operations, and post-production houses,” explains Jesper Anderson, CEO at ioGates. “Adding individual pricing plans opens up the accessibility of ioGates to more creators, which is especially important given the hyper distributed workforce. ioGates gives them flexibility Smart sharing, adds contextual comments, and enhances the security with 2FA, all in the standard package.”
With an approach made familiar by Google Drive and Dropbox, ioGates differs from other file sharing services by being profoundly optimised for media production. Sharing is bidirectional – all parties can send and receive content. It can be used as a stand-alone service or as a complement to your existing media asset management setup as the in/out gateway for media sharing and receiving, optimizing the MAM investment with ultra-secure file sharing beyond the MAM ecosystem.
With ioGates popular “Smart Link”, users can even share files with external collaborators, where, unlike other sharing services, recipients can seamlessly review, comment or approve content through a shared folder on their desktop, no account required. Users also have the ability to create multiple sharing rules within each individual “Smart Link,” such as granting access to only specific folders for downloading or uploading, or setting two-factor authentication for extra security. This is ideal for DITs who want to share dailies with continuity, producers and directors and set varying limits, editorial that needs to collect on evolving projects and broadcasters who want to show partners content for potential purchasing and need several layers of security, yet ease of sharing with non-ioGates users.
