Intertrust ExpressPlay Joins AWS Independent Software Vendor Accelerate Program

Video service operators benefit from pre-integrated solutions with secure workflows that reduce time to market and project risk.

SAN FRANCISCO, January 11, 2022— Intertrust ExpressPlay®, a leader in media security and anti-piracy services, is now an Amazon Web Services (AWS) Technology Partner within the Independent Software Vendor (ISV) Accelerate Program. As a Partner, In/tertrust ExpressPlay can now participate in the new AWS ISV Partner Path allowing further differentiating, co-marketing, and co-selling opportunities.

AWS ISV Accelerate Program is a co-sell program for organizations that provide software solutions that run on or integrate with AWS. The program helps drive new business and accelerate sales cycles by connecting participating ISVs with the AWS sales organization.

As a prerequisite to joining the AWS ISV Accelerate Program, Intertrust ExpressPlay completed a Foundational Technical Review (FTR) of their ExpressPlay DRM cloud service. The AWS FTR, formerly known as Technical Baseline Review, enables AWS Partners to identify and remediate risks in cloud service offerings. The FTR is led by an AWS Partner Solutions Architect who reviews AWS Partner cloud services using a specific set of requirements based on the Security, Reliability, and Operational Excellence pillars of the AWS Well-Architected Framework.
