Helix Security ManagerHelix Security Manager: Control who gets access to streamed and downloaded media


Educational institutions, enterprises and government organizations need to control access to streaming and downloaded media content from their Web site portal applications.

Helix Security Manager leverages ticketed URL technology to control access to media files on the Helix Server to support enterprise Web and mobile applications.

How does it work?
Helix Security Manager functions are performed by two components:
- The Security Manager is a Java application that generates secure playback URLs; that is, hashed tokens that are appended to the original URL requests targeted to the streaming or download servers.
- The Security Adapter is installed on the Helix Server or an HTTP download server and validates the secure URLs before authorizing playback.

Because Helix Security Manager leverages your existing Web applications, you will need to have access to Web developers in order to deploy within your organization.
