New Ecreso development to improve security and protect broadcasters’ FM investment

April 6, 2022 (immediate release)  -WorldCast Systems, a leading global supplier of advanced broadcast solutions, announces a new security feature in its Ecreso FM transmitter range to protect from cyberattacks.

With the rise in new trends impacting the broadcast infrastructure, many devices, initially designed for closed networks, such as RDS encoders or FM transmitters, are now directly exposed to public Internet networks. This makes them vulnerable to cyberattacks and can result in blocked access, program interruptions, hacked content, and more. It is increasingly critical to protect broadcast equipment with new security features.

With the latest version of Ecreso FM transmitters (1.10.1), the security policy on the FTP access has been improved to limit the risk of cyberattacks on the transmitter. As a result, only one user account, with a reinforced password is now available and limited to audio file management. This update is the first milestone of a global approach to integrate advanced security features into the transmitters and helps the customer to protect their Broadcast chain from network attacks.

David Houze, Ecreso Product Manager, “All WorldCast products are designed to improve the Total Cost of Ownership of broadcasters by lowering operating expenses and maximizing transmitter uptime. The new security features implemented into the range of transmitters reflects these core values.” By preventing cyberattacks, broadcasters maintain their on-air time, ensure optimal performance of their equipment, and avoid unnecessary costs relating to system recovery and downtime.

Ecreso transmitters are available in a number of power ranges, from 100W to 10kW. Thousands are deployed across the globe, servicing major network operators, national radios, and community stations alike with resilient, high quality FM transmission. In addition to enhanced security, they are designed for easier maintenance, advanced control, and highest efficiency. Among their unique features, Ecreso transmitters include an innovative software technology called SmartFM, enabling up to 40% energy savings. With Ecreso, broadcasters also benefit from a transmitter brand that reduces electricity costs and limits environmental impact.
