MASV Completes Trusted Partner Network (TPN) Assessment

by Majed Alhajry | Aug 17, 2021

We have some exciting news to share for anyone who uses MASV to transfer files for film, television, and digital media.

MASV has successfully completed a Trusted Partner Network assessment and is now an official member of the TPN vendor roster.

This makes us one of only a few file transfer services that have completed a TPN assessment, and the only one available to any users without a hefty enterprise license. You can sign up and start sending large media files over the cloud today with our pay-as-you-go pricing model.

What is the Trusted Partner Network?

The Trusted Partner Network—or TPN for short—is an initiative by the Motion Picture Association (MPA) to uphold global, industry-wide film and television content protection standards.

TPN helps companies prevent leaks, breaches, and hacks of their customers’ movies and television shows prior to their intended release. A TPN assessment is a review of a vendor’s security posture against physical and digital threats.

With TPN, our customers can rest assured that any files sent using MASV adhere to the MPA’s Best Practices Common Guidelines.

As more and more film and television production moves exclusively to the cloud, initiatives like TPN are vital to ensure smooth operations. The pandemic sped up the transition to remote work which caught the entire media & entertainment industry off-guard. A perfect recipe for cybersecurity attacks.

What does this mean for me?


Since TPN is an industry standard, many large studios require post-production firms, creative agencies, and IT vendors to be assessed before signing a contract. These agreements state either the entire organization or a workstation(s) with TPN-approved hardware, software, and people are in place before signing on the dotted line.

MASV customers can now use our ingest and transfer service as part of their secure workflow, effectively opening the door to contracts with large studios. Best of all, we don’t gate our security features behind complicated licenses or subscription tiers. It’s open to everyone, anywhere in the world, in a pay-as-you-go model. You only pay for the data downloaded which helps scale costs in line with production activity.

What does this mean for MASV?

We want to make it incredibly fast and easy for creatives to securely send large files. Being a member of the Trusted Partner Network’s vendor roster validates that we can do just that for studios of all shapes and sizes. It helps us grow our operation.

File sharing should be an intimate transaction between sender and recipient. That’s it. We have an ongoing commitment, to you, to strengthen that connection and keep all MASV transfers protected under lock and key.

We use top-of-the-line encryption on all transfers, both in-flight and at rest. We also operate on the Amazon Web Services platform, which features built-in, on-premise and cloud-based security protocols for the best possible protection. Over the next few months, we will unveil more security measures—like end-to-end encryption—to ensure your content never falls into the wrong hands.

 As I like to say, security is not a goal, it’s a journey.

If you’d like to request a copy of our TPN report, please send an email [email protected]. If you are new to MASV, I invite you to sign up for a free trial and get 100 GB of transfer data on us.
