Staying compliant with relevant global standards is pivotal for OTT businesses as it helps them to maintain the highest level of privacy and security for their customers’ information, documents, and data. In today’s digital age, adhering to global compliance standards has become a necessity for businesses to ensure that they are following the best practices in information security and user engagement.
As OTT platforms continue to gain popularity, businesses must prioritize global standards to stay competitive and retain customers. This involves implementing various global compliances that demonstrate their dedication to providing world-class security and user experience.
By adhering to different data governance regulations and standards, OTT businesses can ensure the security of their platforms, data, and users. For instance, complying with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) can help businesses safeguard their users’ data, while conforming to the Higher Education Community Vendor Assessment Tool (HECVAT) can ensure that cloud services are appropriately assessed for security and privacy needs, including some that are unique to higher education.
While it is more than a necessity to stay fully compliant with all these compliance standards and protocols, it often becomes difficult and hectic to ensure the same. And that’s where Muvi’s global compliances come into play. Muvi ensures that your streaming business is completely compliant with all the national and international compliance standards and even helps exceed your expectations to ensure enterprise-grade information security and user experience. Here’s a closer look at this in-built feature of Muvi.
Muvi’s Global Compliances in a Glimpse: The Key Highlights
Muvi provides you with a 360-degree solution to stay compliant with all the crucial protocols – both national and international. Let’s have a look!
Muvi is ISO/IEC 27001:2013 certified, which is an international standard that defines the requirements for establishing, implementing, maintaining, and continually improving an information security management system within an organization’s context. It outlines the best practices for assessing and treating information security risks based on the organization’s needs.
Muvi’s adherence to ISO compliance ensures that your streaming platform follows the global standard for information security, providing robust security features for data protection. This certification indicates that your streaming platform has adequate security measures in place to safeguard against data breaches, thereby enhancing users’ trust and engagement.
Muvi’s VPAT® conformance to Version 2.4 Rev (March 2022) ensures that the platform adheres to the accessibility standards of Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act. Section 508 requires that electronic and information technology (EIT) products and services provided by federal agencies in the United States be accessible to people with disabilities.
VPAT® is the global reporting format that helps buyers and sellers to identify information and communications technology (ICT) products and services with accessibility features. The Accessibility Conformance Report (ACR) based on the ITI VPAT® enables companies to communicate the accessibility features of their products and services to customers and other stakeholders.
Conforming to VPAT® standards not only helps streaming companies to meet legal requirements, but also expands their potential audience and customer base. By making their platforms accessible to people with disabilities, streaming companies can provide a better user experience to all their customers, regardless of their abilities. This can result in increased customer loyalty and retention, and can also enhance their brand reputation as a socially responsible and inclusive company.
Muvi is now a HECVAT compliant software vendor, adhering to the Higher Education Community Vendor Assessment Tool (HECVAT) standard. HECVAT is associated with higher education information security and data protection, which helps higher education institutions ensure that cloud services are appropriately assessed for security and privacy needs, including some that are unique to higher education.
Muvi’s HECVAT compliance ensures that your streaming platform is secure and privacy-oriented for higher education institutions, providing a seamless experience to users. Muvi’s compliance with HECVAT also highlights its commitment to meeting various relevant standards and regulations to provide the best possible user experience.
General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) Compliance
Muvi complies with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) standards, which regulate the processing of personal data by organizations within the European Union (EU) and the European Economic Area (EEA). GDPR compliance is essential for businesses operating in the EU or EEA.
By complying with GDPR, Muvi ensures that your streaming platform is secure, transparent, and accountable for the processing of personal data. Muvi also helps its customers on their GDPR compliance journey, ensuring that they meet the necessary standards and regulations to protect their users’ data.
Muvi provides Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) compliant platforms, which ensure that online payments and transactions are secure. PCI DSS is a global standard that governs data security across a wide range of online payments.
Muvi’s PCI compliance provides a secure connection for online payments and transactions, with 24×7 monitoring to keep a check on online threats to the content and platform. Muvi also adapts your streaming platform to comply with the latest PCI security standards and guidelines, providing robust security features to protect users’ financial information.
Muvi offers 50-60% ADA compliant platforms by default via its standard templates, and it also provides a facility to custom-develop websites and apps up to 80% compliance, with custom development charges.
ADA compliance refers to the Americans with Disabilities Act Standards for Accessible Design, which mandates that all electronic and information technology (like websites) must be accessible to people with disabilities.
ADA compliance is important for a streaming platform as it ensures that all users, including those with disabilities, have equal access to content and services. By meeting the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) Standards for Accessible Design, streaming platforms can provide a better user experience for a wider audience while also avoiding potential legal issues and penalties for non-compliance.
