Ask the Board – April 24, 2017 | SCOTT MARDEN


How do you maintain your digital signage network’s security?”

Because Captivate is an office video network, which is located within more than 1,600 class-A commercial real estate buildings, network security is vital for our property owners and their tenants. To ensure network security, Captivate has built a unique ecosystem that connects our ad servers to the web using encrypted communications protocols.

Features of the ecosystem include:

  • A VPN architecture, giving us encrypted connections for our data centers to our building ad servers
  • Hardware security client provides protection over the web and on-site
  • HTTPS password-protected CMS ensures information is only accessed by approved editors
  • Remote data center securely protects connections to and from advertisers, editors, building messages and data feeds
  • Location-based Wi-Fi security ensures ad servers communicate to elevator screens without interruption

This ecosystem has protected building owners, advertisers and publishing partners for 20 years and continues to be one of the most secure platforms in the digital signage industry.
