Security and Reliability

Video Cloud Features

Secure and reliable platform built for leading global organizations

Whether your videos are for public-facing audiences or private internal communications, Brightcove makes it easy to deliver high-quality video experiences with security and control to any device. With support for the most sophisticated, studio-grade content protection and advanced security features like watermarking, domain and IP restrictions, and geo-restriction, Brightcove helps you deliver even the most sensitive video content with security and confidence.

Content Protection and Encryption

Reach employees and constituents on any device with a wide-range of advanced security features. Brightcove makes it easy to control your content with support for watermarking, content encryption, token protection, and DRM.

Domain and IP Restriction

Pinpoint exactly when and where your content is displayed to comply with global launch roll-out schedules or secure behind-the-firewall delivery. Brightcove makes it easy to restrict access to your videos by domain, IP address, or publication date. Restricting access to sensitive videos by IP address range ensures content is accessible only from within approved networks.

Authentication & Single Sign On (SSO)

Avoid the complication of providing users with yet another set of login credentials by using an authentication platform they already know. With built-in support for SAML 2.0-based SSO integrations, Brightcove allows you to leverage your existing investment in enterprise security and identity management to add secure access to your valuable video content.

Low Network Impact

Deliver the best video experience, with the least network impact. Brightcove offers a number of ways to ensure that you can use video as freely without impacting your company’s network performance.

  • We support customer-managed CDNs, or hosting videos on an internal service like Cisco media servers so that they can be served to Brightcove players without leaving the corporate network.
  • Brightcove video delivery can also be optimized by leading proxy devices from Riverbed Technology and Blue Coat.
  • In addition, we partner with leading enterprise content delivery (eCDN) solution providers to optimize network performance.


Have a video that can’t be distributed outside of a certain geographic region? With Brightcove, you can ensure that you meet your specific geo-restriction, security and/or content license obligations for distribution with advanced geofiltering features. This feature is available through Brightcove partners, but is fully integrated with our platform.


Remote Assets

Deliver high-quality video experiences to your employees without the content ever leaving your firewall. With Brightcove's Remote Asset mode, enterprises supply Brightcove with the metadata and file location for videos, but the actual assets are never uploaded to Video Cloud. The video player and metadata are served from Video Cloud, but the video is served from the enterprise's own content delivery network, providing an extra layer of security.


Industry-Leading Service Level Agreement (SLA)

Brightcove leads the industry with our best-in-class Service Level Agreement. It is our mission to make it easy for our customers to deliver the best possible video experience to their viewers. We have a singular focus on providing an amazing product and maintaining the stability and reliability of our solution. This enables us to deliver on our mission to our customers.

Proven Success

Trust your content to a proven solution. Brightcove arranges for rigorous third-party security assessments of Brightcove to be conducted at least once per year, including network and application vulnerability threats, penetration testing and application security framework controls auditing.
