NEXTECH'S INFERNOAR VIRTUAL EVENTS PLATFORM CHOSEN BY DALLAS INDEPENDENT SCHOOL DISTRICT
Nextech AR Solutions Corp. has signed a contract to supply its InfernoAR video conferencing and virtual events platform to the Dallas Independent School District (Dallas ISD).
Nextech AR chief executive officer Evan Gappelberg comments, "We are excited to have been chosen by the Dallas ISD and we look forward to working with them on this and other projects." He continues: "We continue to win new business; as enterprise pivots away from less secure platforms, people are looking for platforms that stop breaches and protect privacy. InfernoAR video conferencing and virtual events platform recently
reported a breakthrough in security with the
help of Fastly,
an edge computing company. Bringing token authentication to the edge greatly enhances security and performance, which is huge for winning more contracts from our growing customer base. We are currently experiencing a surge in demand for our services across our multiple business segments, including AR e-commerce, our ARitize app, and our InfernoAR video conferencing and virtual events platform."
Security is a core feature of InfernoAR -- the platform has serviced many Fortune 500 businesses, including Johnson and Johnson, Viacom, Merk, and others. Token authentication allows the CDNs to reject serving videos to unauthorized users; by taking the JWT authentication to the edge; security is pushed closer to the user and load is taken off the core application.
InfernoAR supports clients that require integration with enterprise systems, custom workflow, cognitive search and discovery, interactive features, and secure multiCDN streaming in front of and behind the firewall. InfernoAR has been providing top products and service in the video streaming space for over 10 years.
